REHAU has provided an account of its progress towards meeting its energy reduction and recycling targets in the form of a new 44-page Sustainability Report.
Available to read or download from the REHAU website, the reports gives an insight into the company’s environmental initiatives happening at its sites around the world.
The company has already cut its primary energy consumption per tonne of production by 7.4% towards its target of 30% by 2020. It has also reduced its water consumption by 17.2% towards its overall target of 40% by 2020. The company is now on track to achieve ISO50001 certification.
The report focuses on REHAU’s ongoing commitment to recycling and its investment in plants in both the UK and Poland to recycle old PVC windows to integrate back into its production.
The publication also offers insight into how REHAU is developing biopolymers using plant-based raw materials, which may one day be used to create the fibre composite that will enable bamboo to replace the reinforcing steel used in construction.
In addition to its work in windows and doors, the reports details REHAU’s involvement in projects as diverse as robust polymer pressure tanks for environmentally efficient hydrogen cell powered vehicles which can store the gas at 700, and polymer embedded with glass bubbles for lighter fuel saving materials on aircraft.
REHAU’s UK Chief Executive Martin Mitchin comments: “This impressive report is a great reminder of the fantastic work taking place right across the REHAU group to ensure that we consistently deliver on our promises as an environmentally responsible business.”
