Life cycle assessments, also known as LCAs, consider the life cycle of a product or process from raw material extraction to production, all the way through to waste treatment and recycling. “From cradle to grave”, each step is analyzed in detail.
At ETA Tovarna d.o.o. in Cerkno, Slovenia (E.G.O. Slovenia), a project team looked for ways to reduce scrap metal from the stamping shop or to recycle it in a more climate-friendly way.
Photovoltaic modules are particularly suitable as a form of renewable energy. A PV system has now been installed on the approximately 15,000 m² roof of the E.G.O. plant in Taicang, China. A tree was also planted to symbolize the green energy.
The characteristic value concerns emissions into the air, which are released into the atmosphere from a source.
The Spanish site of the E.G.O.-Group, E.G.O. Appliance Controls, S.L.U. (EAC), is located in Lliçà de Vall (near Barcelona) in a region severely affected by water scarcity. Employees have therefore been working hard to reduce their water consumption since 2020—with great success.
Without water, there is no life; it is the most valuable resource our planet has to offer. Reason enough to systematically investigate the importance of water for the companies of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding and, on the other hand, the importance of these companies for water.
A best-practice example that shows there are potential savings everywhere—including in the production of compressed air. At the production site E.G.O. Elektro-Komponente d.o.o. in Zagreb, Croatia (E.G.O. Croatia), temperature limiters, switches, and regulators are produced in many different versions and in large quantities.
