The overarching goal of environmental engineering company CarbonetiX is to help its customers achieve a 15 million tonne greenhouse gas saving by 2015. This corresponds to the annual carbon emissions of the Hazelwood Power Station, which is thought to be one of the southern hemisphere's dirtiest power plant. The principal driver of all CarbonetiX activities, therefore, is lowering carbon emissions.
CarbonetiX is owned and managed by Bruce Rowse (B Eng (Mech), MBA). Bruce began CarbonetiX in 2002 after deciding to personally act on his concerns for our world’s future.
Bruce is a member of the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) and the Alternative Technology Association. He is an AIRAH accredited energy auditor, and also holds a “D” class electrical licence.

Our energy use
As a company focussed on energy efficiency and energy conservation, CarbonetiX keeps energy consumption in our own offices at a minimum. In 2008 our energy consumption was 30 kWh per square metre, in 2009 it was 33 kWh per suqare metre. To put this in context, this is just one quarter of the usage of a typical office of the same size.
