ISO 50001 for energy reduction
“Unused energy is the best way to improve energy balance!” This common-sense approach guides all our processes and actions. So much so that we have had it ISO 50001 certified. We apply this management system worldwide and across all our activities, including our upstream energy procurement.
We insulate our furnaces, and work with specialists to digitally regulate their settings. We extend the use of regenerative burners that conserve heat for reuse. The same mindset guides our support for clients, with energy efficiency as a key goal. Our approach to industry combines business performance and enhanced environmental impact. We aim for energy efficiency and optimized production across our production processes.
Waste reduction & recycling
Our production generates almost no waste, with 96% of steel dust particles repurposed or recycled. 78% of our production waste is recycled as inputs for other industries. We adapt from one country to another, but our waste becomes a new resource, by definition.
The car parks at our Le Cheylas site will soon be shaded by photovoltaic panels. Power from a pilot 64kWh installation will integrate our onsite electrical network ahead of scale up. We are also planning similar installations at our sites in Spain, Slovenia and Thailand.
Heat recovery systems
Our compressors are equipped with heat recovery units to divert the heat generated to water or the plant itself. By using regenerative burners, we can conserve the heat produced and use it to reheat air in the furnace.
