Environment / Energy
The lasting use of our resources - water and energy - as well as the creation of environmental friendly products is essential for us.
We implemented technologies, which allow us an increased productivity and quality by multiple usage and recovery of substances, in order to spare resources and to reduce emission.
With the support and strength - of our own Power Thermal Coupling Plant - we are in the position to use energy multiple, for example to produce power and energy for drying processes as well as for heating our buildings. Furthermore the water we require for our manufacturing is also used multiple, before it is cleaned in our biological cleaning plant and returned again finally to the regular water cycle.
As a result of this philosophy and its realization, in 1999 we have been awarded as with the 1. category Environment Prize of Commerzbank/Impulse.
Our engagement for constant improvement is shown by the repeated auditing based on the norm of the environment certification according to DN ES ISO 14001. In addition to that we are working on a constant reduction of emission figures. In this relation we introduced a certified energy management according to 16001 since 2011. For November we plan an update according to ISO 50001.
