Sustainability

 

 

 

Sustainable use of resources as well as environmental friendly products have always been part of our company philosophy. More and more, sustainability is reflecting the complete life-cycle of buildings – from planning to demolition. Globally, systems for the evaluation related to the certification of sustainable buildings have been developed: Leed, Breeam, DGNB and others. Moreover, single building components are assessed according their sustainable effects. Environmental product declarations (EPD) will provide information on the functional and ecological quality of the components.

Recycling

Recycling

Technoform Bautec is an environmentally concerned company. We always aim to find the best balance between environmental aspects and product requirements. For this reason re-use of our own material in-house is a tried and tested practice. We use almost 100 % of our production waste as internal re-ground material or regranulate and apply it in our production.

Technoform Bautec is member of the German recycling initiative A/U/F. Target of A/U/F is the sustainable support of the return of construction elements and components into the supply chain after dismantling or renovation.

Life-cycle assessment study

Life-cycle assessment study

In 2012 Technoform Bautec Kunststoffprodukte GmbH carried out a life-cycle assessment of their products in cooperation with the University of Kassel.

The result of this study can be used as a component for Environmental Product Declarations (EPD). These are important for the overall ecological evaluation of windows, doors and facades – and are required for building certifications.
