Sustainability

Borg employ economic and sustainable measures across sites nationwide, recognising the necessity of creating an eco-friendly industrial landscape. Below are some sustainability initiatives that have been put in place in Oberon, NSW.

In 2020, Crossmuller’s Electrical Division commenced work on installing a 4-Megawatt Gas Turbine Generator at Australian Panel Products Oberon Facility. The Gas Turbine Generator will be connected to the site’s high voltage network and will produce a maximum of 4 Megawatts at 11,000V. This amount of energy will support 20% of the site’s power consumption. Combined with the existing Solar Panels, 40% of the site will be powered by sustainable energy. The 4-Megawatt Gas Turbine Generator produces around 10 Megawatts of exhaust at 515°C, which will supplement the drying process on the Particleboard Drying System.

A total of 14,814 solar panels have been installed at the Oberon MDF and particleboard facility generating 5,110 MWh per year, with the greenhouse gas reduction equivalent to 4,599,000kg of CO2 each year. This offsets 1946 tonnes of coal in electricity generation, equal to planting 32,193 trees or driving an average car 25 million kilometres per year.

Borg aim to lessen the environmental impact of manufacturing by promoting vertical integration and an industrial ecosystem, whilst being socially responsible and supporting safe workplaces.
