We take responsibility!

Sustainability at KNARR

Issues such as sustainability and respect for the environment are present in society, politics and industry as never before. Many of the topics that are so popular today have been part of everyday life at KNARR for a very long time.

“For us, both the economic and the ecological vision go hand in hand – and that for many years. Sustainable resource management not only pays off, but is part of responsible entrepreneurship!”
Rainer Knarr (Managing Director)

PHOTOVOLTAICS

A bird’s eye view says more than 1000 words: on an area of approx. 15,000 m², around 10,500 modules generate energy. With a solar system output of 795.0725 kWp, KNARR generates the annual requirements for two single-family homes on a beautiful summer’s day. This makes KNARR one of the most important power producers in the region.

HEAT RECOVERY

The intelligent use of discharged process heat is done by the heat recovery system. The returned energy is customarily responsible for the heating of the company buildings. An optimal use of already existing resources.

LIGHTING

Often underestimated, LED technology is considered a key technology for a “green future”. Especially the long life makes high quality LEDs an environmentally friendly light source. Efficient, pollutant-free and recyclable – with perfect light quality.

WASTE SEPARATION

In addition to the classic waste separation within the office building, an orderly waste disposal in the manufacturing area is very important to us. Especially oily or greasy wastes should be disposed of properly.

PAPERLESS OFFICE

Thanks to constantly optimized software solutions, it has been possible to convert formerly paper-based processes efficiently and environmentally friendly to a paperless everyday life. Electronic order entry as well as confirmation has been a practice for many years. With the consent of our partners, billing is also done in paperless form.

COOLING WATER TREATMENT

By treating the cooling water, the internal cooling system keeps its full performance during operation. In addition, resources, energy and ultimately our environment are spared.
