At CERATIZIT, therefore, we have our own recycling facilities where we recycle coated and uncoated carbide tools that have been withdrawn from service, including inserts, drills and carbide rolls. The recycled materials, which are a product of the zinc Recycling or acidulation process, are re-used following careful examination for carbide grades specifically designed for this purpose.
Efficient use of energy
A new energy concept for our production building in Mamer, Luxembourg, significantly reduces energy consumption. New cooling, ventilation and heat recovery systems in the production halls are designed to reduce current electricity consumption by over 80 percent in future. This has led to CERATIZIT Luxembourg S.à r.l. winning the Green Facility Management Award 2014. In the future, up to 90 percent of heat requirements at the site will be met purely through waste heat from the machines.
