Every year, Troldtekt A/S publishes its CSR report, and 2016 saw progress in a number of areas, as can be seen from the report which Troldtekt has submitted to the UN as part of its commitment to the UN Global Compact initiative.
Most significantly, Troldtekt has invested DKK 13 million in a fully automatic painting facility and the newly constructed hall which houses it. It means that the company has reduced the amount of wasted paint by more than 70%.
“We have chosen a more expensive technology, which recycles the spray from the painting booth and thus markedly minimises waste. This is very significant seeing as we have a system that runs around the clock,” says Peer Leth, CEO of Troldtekt A/S.
He adds that any residual paint which cannot be reused is collected, filtered and handled in an environmentally safe manner.
New drying oven cuts energy consumption
Overall, in the 2015-2017 period, Troldtekt will have invested more than DKK 100 million in its production plant.
“It means that during this period we have expanded our capacity by up to 40%. However, at the same time our energy and resource consumption has been optimised in a number of areas. This is completely in line with our strategy, which is based on the sustainable Cradle to Cradle principles,” explains Peer Leth.
According to the new CSR report, Troldtekt reduced its energy consumption per acoustic panel produced by 17% from 2015 to 2016. This can be attributed, in particular, to a new and more efficient drying oven, which has resulted in a 50% cut in the amount of energy used for drying the acoustic panels.
