Our principles:

  • Optimised manufacturing processes prevent waste.
  • Environmental protection orientated conduct by the employees.
  • Reduction in share of residual waste to a minimum by handing over remaining material, waste oil, consumables which contain oil, cardboard boxes and empty plastic bags to qualified recyclers. 

All the plastic materials which we use are suitable for mono-material disposal and re-use as recycled granulate in the manufacturing process for new products. Whenever possible, we use polypropylene to manufacture our products because it is a very environmentally-friendly product. The amount of water and primary energy needed for its manufacture is very low, and gas and dust emissions are minimal. In addition, polypropylene is a neutral material when in a disposal site and has the highest possible calorific value (like heating oil) in thermal utilisation*. If required, we can provide the relevant documentation. We are members of the German recycling "Dual System". An environmental audit is being planned.
