100% regenerative energy | Sustainability at Schlichter GmbH
Sustainability is on everyone’s lips today. For the company Schlichter in Dettingen, the topic of sustainability has been in the foreground for a long time.
Energy generation 100% from regenerative energy sources
The entire company, including production, is already supplied 100% from renewable energy sources. The expansion of the solar plant on the company premises in spring 2021 was a further step and expanded the climate-neutral energy generation many times over by means of additional solar energy panels in the company.
The use of heat pump technology has already been in use for some time and complements the climate-neutral energy generation in an optimal way. Thus, the company Schlichter GmbH in Dettingen uses a 100% renewable energy mix, which serves as a role model for other companies.
Optimization of recycling processes
Schlichter is also a pioneer in the continuous development of recycling processes and the responsible use of valuable resources by optimizing business processes. The development of optimized films that are reduced in thickness while retaining the same strength, excellent transparency and brilliance enables the production of packaging films that use less material.
Making optimum use of resources and returning them to the recycling loop after use has been a key issue for Schlichter in Dettingen for more sustainability and environmental protection for several years now.
