Environmental protection and responsibility in dealing with raw materials are permanent components of the corporate philosophy at Savimetal. Over the years, the company has taken various measures to reduce the effects of its activities on the environment to a minimum.
Reuse of raw materials
Savimetal buys back the worn cast parts from its customers at fair prices that are higher than the usual market value. These scrap metals are used sustainably. Thanks to its induction melting furnaces, the company is able to reuse all the alloying elements present in the metal.
Use of solar energy
Savimetal has installed a photovoltaic system with an area of 700 m2 on part of the roof, which can supply a peak power of 100 kW.
Air pollution control
The company has installed a total of 12 dedusting and filter systems. Through the extraction of around 220,000 m3 air per hour, these systems guarantee that pollutant levels fall well below the European guide values inside and outside the foundry.
All production halls are fitted with noise damping and insulating materials, so that the noise disturbance outside the production halls is reduced to a minimum.
Savimetal has developed its own technical system for the use of waste heat from industrial plants to heat its buildings.
Foundry in harmony with nature
Savimetal is located in very green surroundings, between its own meadows and woods. On the works site there is a natural pond that serves to cool the induction melting furnaces and forms an eco-system of its own.
