Melville Graphics goes greener with ALD

Melville Graphics, part of Melville Exhibition and Event Services which prints and provides display services to the exhibition industry, has taken an important step in underlining its green credentials by deciding to use the services of ALD Industry for disp osal of its PVC banner material - both reinforced and unreinforced.
MelvilleNathan Rowe, production manager at Melville Graphics Coventry, said: IFSEC 2009 was the first official show where we were specifically asked to get banner material recycled as United Business Media (UBM) are keen for their contractors to obtain the BS 8901 standard." BS 8901 is the British Standard that has been developed specifically for the events industry. The standard provides a "framework of good practice and defines the requirements for a sustainable event management system to ensure an enduring and balanced approach to economic activity, environmental responsibility and social progress".

Melville is an ISO 14001 company and an Association of Events Organisers (AEO) Excellence 09 Awards winner and is therefore very keen to fly the green flag not only for its customers and exhibitors at the NEC but also for Birmingham City Council, partner for the NEC Group in its environmental aspirations.

ALD Industry mainly recycles PVC in the UK for ISO 14001 registered companies, and its managing director Mike Turner said: "We are delighted to welcome Melville Graphics to our ever growing recycling family and we hope that this move will pave the way for other environmentally concerned exhibition centres and printers to do the same."
