Responsibility

1. Low emission heating system

Two heat sources one goal: The plant uses the cooling water circuit of our manufacturing machines to feed the hot water produced directly into the heating system with a powerful refrigeration machine and pump station. This technology saves fuel oil and drastically reduces the pollutant values of the exhaust gases.

Emissions of the heating system in kg / a, CO2 t/a

 

    Formerly   Now
SO2   190.08   43.96
NOx   77.76   17.98
CH4   1.44   0.33
NMVOC   8.64   2.00
CO   31.68   7.33
CO2   210.24   48.6

 

The concept is supported by the installation of a heat recovery system in the high-bay warehouse. Furthermore, 3 dust separators in the production rooms ensure that no dust particles are released into the atmosphere.

 

2. Safety for the environment

We are proud to have done more for the safety of the company than the authorities required. All factory buildings are equipped with a state-of-the-art automatic sprinkler system, not only the production facilities but also the two high-bay warehouses as well as the offices, the laboratory, the tinting plant, the forwarding department and the cellar rooms. In addition, there is a chemical sewerage system around the factory with a large collection tank to prevent damage to surrounding land in the event of a disaster.

 

3. Promotion of environmentally friendly green electricity

By purchasing green electricity, we are setting an example for a conscious approach to the environment that conserves resources.
