Alzchem Group AG: Further steps towards green energy
Alzchem Group AG has published its Environmental Statement 2022 for its German sites in Trostberg, Schalchen, Hart and Waldkraiburg, underscoring the central importance of environmental protection and sustainability for the Bavarian specialty chemicals company.
The reduction, avoidance or recycling of waste, the in house reprocessing of process water in the central wastewater treatment plant at the Trostberg site and the minimization of energy consumption are just a few examples that demonstrate the high priority placed on environmental protection and sustainability at Alzchem. Last year, expenditure on protecting the environment amounted to more than EUR 18 million. In addition, the company's production processes are based predominantly on electricity instead of oil or gas: electricity is the energy of the future and is becoming ever greener as a result of the switch to renewable energies - as are Alzchem's products as a result.
The resource "energy" continues to be the focus of Alzchem's environmental projects. Energy consumption is to be further reduced: One urgent goal is to optimize processes in the manufacture of products and thus reduce the consumption of energy. In addition, emission protection, water consumption and the energy- and raw material-efficient use of resources also play an important role in the Alzchem production network.
Alzchem has been EMAS-registered (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme, also known as the EU Eco-Audit) since 1997 and produces an annual environmental statement. The company has this validated by an independent environmental auditor in order to document, monitor and evaluate the impact of its own activities on environmental protection and sustainability.
Detailed information and key figures can be found in Alzchem's Environmental Statement 2022, available on the company's homepage.
