Sustainable cycle and recyclable material at ORNAMIN

Climate neutral company


Awarded since 2021

ORNAMIN was certified as a climate-neutral company on August 17, 2022. Based on the CO2 footprint for 2021, 912 tons of CO2 were retroactively compensated. In 2022, we can already tell that the amount to be offset will already be less than 500 tons. The CO2 emissions are offset by investing in recognized climate protection projects that support the UN sustainability goals of Agenda 2023. These projects include energy supply in the Indian state of Uttaranchal with sustainable energy generation through a run-of-river power plant. New measures have already been implemented for 2022 and many more are planned, as well as the conversion to eco-gas and electricity, expansion of the in-house photovoltaic system and further conversion of the company vehicle fleet to hybrid and e-mobility.

In addition, ORNAMIN can now count itself among the members of the climate initiative "Together Climaneutral 2030" of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry  Ostwestfalen zu Bielefeld and the Chamber of Commerce Lippe zu Detmold, as well as the economy of OWL. These want to show that the economy is quite capable and also willing to set a good example in terms of climate protection.

"Having archieved this award, we are aming straight away for an even better arward", says Managing Director Dr. Holger von der Emde in this regard. "We are always working on becoming even more sustainable."

Energy management system & solar energy

Energy

To optimise and improve energy efficiency, ORNAMIN uses an energy management system that is regularly audited externally. Energy savings also result from the use of machine waste heat, the photovoltaic system and the low processing temperatures of thermoplastic plastics. These are only approx. 200 °C. For comparison: glass is processed at approx. 800 °C and porcelain even at over 1,000 °C.

All machines are cooled in a closed cooling circuit system with well water. This enables a large saving of valuable drinking water during production. When selecting new machines, attention is paid to the highest possible energy efficiency and user-friendliness. CO2 limits for company vehicles are bindingly regulated in the company manual. Vehicles with natural gas or hybrid drive are also used.
