Systematic energy management
Our works in Bavaria are cutting-edge glass factories in line with the state of the art. Our first works gained ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system as early as 2001; the first ISO 50001 energy management system certification was awarded to our company in 2010.
Today, certified environmental and energy management systems are in place at all our manufacturing locations.
- Energy-saving projects include: compressed air, burner technology, energy efficient drives, LED lighting, waste heat recovery, water saving measures
- Implemented environment certificates ISO 14001: 2015 and ISO 50001: 2011.
- Main raw materials are locally sourced e.g. quartz sand from Hirschau (short transport routes)
- Substitution of hazardous substances with more environmentally friendly options.
SPIEGELAU & Sustainability
Our road to more energy efficiency
Our Amberg and Weiden locations are increasingly turning to renewable energy sources; our rooftop photovoltaic system at the Weiden production facility will go into operation, and we will use the thermal energy from melting tank exhaust gases to generate electricity.
We continue to take steps along the road to greater energy efficiency.
