Sustainable manufacturing

At HAURATON, it is important for us to consciously think about the environment in our manufacturing practices. Thanks to ongoing research and innovations, we have been able to reduce our energy consumption. Through both our material selection and various measures in our production plant in Ötigheim.

Learn how we are actively adapting energy saving solutions for a better environmental outcome.

Solar and photovoltaic energy

The roof of the Ötigheim plant is equipped with 2,784 photovoltaic panels covering a total area of 4,478 m². The plant supplies approximately 2,100 kWh per day, which are fed directly into the electricity grid. This corresponds to approximately 93% of HAURATON’s electricity needs. The production of electricity through photovoltaics saves about 370 tons of CO2* per year. The additional electricity needs are covered by eco-electricity, i.e. electricity from renewable energies.

Primary energy saving

Recognising that electricity production generates up to 60% unused heat energy, we installed a combined heat and power plant in our Ötigheim factory.

The CHP plant allows us to recover all of the available heat energy and use it for our hot water production, improving the efficiency of our heating systems.

With a combined heat and power plant, we have made a significant reduction in energy consumption, with up to 40% of primary energy saved and annual CO2 emissions reduced.

Reduced water consumption

The production of our concrete channels works on an accurate formula of hydration. This ensures that only the amount of water actually needed is used in our manufacturing processes. Efficient water consumption reduces water waste.

LEED and BREEAM Product Sustainability Declarations

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) are certification systems for sustainable construction.

In order to support the LEED and BREEAM certification process for our clients, we provide information on our project-related products and services upon request. Our life cycle assessment takes into account the phases of production, transport to the implementation site and waste treatment (modules A1-A4, C3 and D, in accordance with the European standard EN 15804).
