ENERGY EFFICIENCY

  1. Sustainability
  2. Energy Efficiency

EFFICIENCY MEANS USING ENERGY SPARINGLY.

Sustainable production begins long before we turn raw materials into our products: the equipment at our locations also plays a major role when it comes to protecting resources. We are therefore committed to efficient energy management and continuously optimize the energy footprint of our locations.

We have already achieved considerable reductions in our CO2 emissions and energy consumption thanks to a variety of modernization measures. But we’re not done yet: in regular audits, we analyze how we can improve even further.

850 METRIC TONS OF CO2 A YEAR

... are saved by our Krumbach location thanks to more efficient energy management and a wide variety of modernization measures.

    

1,120 METRIC TONS OF CO2 A YEAR

... are saved by our Vechta location thanks to more efficient energy management and a wide variety of modernization measures.

    

223,440 KILOWATT-HOURS OF ELECTRICITY A MONTH

… are generated on-site for production in Krumbach, Vechta, and Langenau, using combined heat and power units.

    

3 NEW BOILERS

... have been installed at the Krumbach, Vechta and Mollet del Vallès locations to enable more efficient heating.

    

588,416 KILOWATT-HOURS OF WASTE HEAT FROM PRODUCTION

... are used for heating at the Krumbach, Vechta, and Mollet del Vallès locations every month.

8 MOLDING LOCATIONS

… have had their energy efficiency reviewed in independent energy audits since 2016 – and have identified measures for improvement: Anetz, Huarte, Krumbach, Langenau, Mainleus, Mollet del Vallès, Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire, and Vechta.

    

19 NEW VACUUM PUMPS

... in the production facilities at the Langenau, Krumbach, Vechta, Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire, and Mollet del Vallès locations consume electricity on demand only and thus save energy.

    

1,624 NEW LED LAMPS

... are replacing the less efficient incandescent light bulbs at the Krumbach, Vechta, Mollet del Vallès, Huarte, and Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire locations. As a result, we are saving 45,991 kilowatt-hours a month.

    

9 ELECTRIC MOTORS

... in the production facilities at the Langenau, Krumbach, Vechta, Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire, and Mollet del Vallès locations consume electricity on demand only and thus save energy.
