When it comes to the future of our planet, we are not willing to compromise. Kandelium is fully committed to delivering sustainable solutions. In our field of business, we maintain the most sustainable production. And we are constantly working to reduce our ecological footprint further.
For the benefit of our customers, our employees, our shareholders – and our world.
Kandelium has been systematically reducing emissions and increasing energy efficiency for decades, and our production is the most sustainable in the field. We are the only sodium percarbonate manufacturer using the groundbreaking, energy-efficient crystallization process rather than the traditional spray-drying process.
Our sites are state-of-the-art. For example, our production site in Bad Hönningen is equipped with a waste water treatment plant, a flue gas desulfurization plant, and dust filters on every exhaust outlet. It also features a remarkably high degree of energy recovery, ensuring excellent energy efficiency.
One of our environmental priorities is to continue reducing CO2 emissions. In Bad Hönningen, we will equip our reduction kilns with a natural gas burner, and will begin phasing out coal well ahead of Germany's Climate Action Plan. In Monterrey, we are preparing several waste heat recovery measures, migrating to LED plant lighting and assessing the electrical market to increase the use of renewable energies. In Escuzar, we will install solar panels to reduce indirect CO2 emissions. And we are continually developing additional strategies to improve even more.
