Sustainability

USING NEW ENERGY SOURCES IS IN OUR NATURE.

The energy that moves us has always been green, thanks to a consolidated commitment to energy saving and CO2 reduction policies.

Our vision is to go even further than simple compliance with the regulations. This is why we have chosen to apply ISO 14001 and the LEED certification system for building sustainability, which evaluates energy efficiency, water management, construction site, materials used and interior features regarding air quality and thermal comfort.

In this way, we ensure environmental improvement of processes, infrastructure and products in the SchlegelGiesse world. This philosophy is implemented through numerous projects that
optimize consumption and protection of the environment.

Cogeneration System

This system converts the network’s methane gas into mechanical energy and recovers the thermal energy produced during the process. The result? A significant reduction in CO2 emissions by the factory burners and, as a consequence, by power plants thanks to the energy saved. Emissions are lowered by 40% while maintaining the same amount of energy supplied.

Research and Development

All our hardware accessories are treated and painted strictly using non-toxic thermosetting powder paints.

PVC and PP Recycling

We put 100% of the V-Lon production residues back into production and also recycle the polypropylene generated in the manufacture of brush pile.

Appropriate Disposal for Recyclable Waste

We supply recycling companies with our plastic, cardboard and wood packaging.

Extrusion Water Reuse

We have implemented a water cooling system to recycle the water used in the V-Lon extrusion process.

Updated Machinery and Equipment

The restructuring and upgrading of electrical systems allows us to reduce electricity consumption as well as fire risk, in compliance with legislative requirements.

LED Illumination

More efficient lighting for production and storage saves energy and achieves long-term returns.
