A precious commodity
Every drop counts
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.
Recycling of metal scrap
At ETA d.o.o. 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. Part of the scrap metal is now melted down on the spot instead of being handed over to a recycling truck.
Energy efficiency increased
Compressed air offers potential savings
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. Manufacturing the compressed air required for production accounted for around 30 % of the site’s energy consumption and, as the main consumer, offered significant potential for improvement.
Water consumption reduced
Thousands of liters of water saved
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.
Solar offensive launched
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.
Working with life cycle assessments
More sustainable products and innovations
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.
Overview greenhouse gas emissions
The characteristic value concerns emissions into the air, which are released into the atmosphere from a source. The different types of emissions comprise greenhouse gasses (GHG) such as CO₂, CH₄, N₂O, HFCs, PFCs, SF₆, and NF₃. These substances are summarized as CO₂ equivalents (CO₂e).
