Following our principle „We build our own future – acting responsibly towards society and the environment" we attach great importance to sustainability in our development and production processes.


Our environmental strategy "packaging and the environment" is based on the following principles:


1. Product Development

  • development of aluminium-free packagings
  • downgauging of raw materials in order to reduce packaging weight
  • raw materials from renewable resources
  • development of compostable packaging
  • offset of unavoidable CO2-emissions


2. Production Processes

  • energy recovery from the incineration plant
  • biofilter
  • closed circuit heating-cooling-system
  • CO2 voluntary climate protection agreement
  • photovoltaic equipment

knV-alleUnavoidable CO2-emissions are offset within climate protection projects

nachverbrennungThe incinerator has a capatity of 25'000 m³ and complements the existing biofilter plant. Our printing machines are set to ensure that solvent incineration has precedence over the biofilter. Heat from the solvent incineration is recirculated via heat-exchangers to the dryers on the printing and laminating equipment.

biofilteranlageUse of advanced biological technology to dispose of solvent emissions. A filter made from natural materials e.g. bark and wood chippings "digests" solvents.

kuehlsystemeWater consumption is minimised thanks to closed circuit heating-cooling-system; energy consumption is reduced by heat exchangers.
