WRS has been my primary focus for 7 years working with builders, councils and blue chip companies alike, now the opportunities and synergies with the Unyte Group will allow for growth, across many of our sectors.

A new Contaminated land investment model is near completion utilising Industrial Hemp and working closely with land owners.
“Hemp’s abilities to improve soil structure or phytoremediate contaminated land is second to none, we are currently undertaking various trials to provide solid data sets, there is limited research that has been undertaken previously. We are very confident in the ability of Hemp to increase the yield of the following crop grown, naturally and without agrichemical inputs. When combining this with the increase in rainfall attenuation capacity of the soils and CO2 absorption during the growth cycle, the results will be very impressive.” commented Jamie Bartley.
