Environment innovations

A lot of energy in optimisation, less energy in production.

With a new burner technology, over 100,000 cubic metres of natural gas and thus over 160 tonnes of CO2 equivalents can be saved every year. At the Langenfeld plant, the measured savings currently amount to 61,400 m³ of natural gas (60% of the primary energy) and 114 tonnes of CO2.

The reduction of harmful CO2 has long been a concern for Schmees. A concept in which climate protection, efficient use of resources and industrial modernisation go hand in hand clearly shows that everyone involved benefits from this interaction.

We know that sustainability strengthens our company’s position on the market, and therefore that of our customers. At the same time, we make an important contribution to the protection and preservation of our environment.

Professional and social competence are important elements for the success of the business.
