It’s not just because we like living here.
“Environmental protection begins right from the start: with the prevention of particulates and emissions”. But our production processes are also influenced by thoughts of the environment. That’s why Feinhütte Halsbrücke GmbH has been coming up with innovations such as the alternative solders for conventional tin and lead alloys that the company has been developing since 1998 and that have the same properties as their predecessors. In parallel to the introduction of oxygen technology, we have also converted the existing filter technology for our short barrel furnaces, and replaced it with significantly more efficient filters. All of the exhaust air and waste water generated by Feinhütte is also monitored on an ongoing basis using state-of-the-art analysis methods – with accuracy down to the pico-range.
Already in the 1990s, we have wooded parts of the company site. For us, trees and forests are not only a green trend - next to water, they are the basis for life par excellence. We continuously work with our own resources year by year on the preservation and expansion of our tree and forest stock.
Responsibility. Without compromise.
Like all metallurgy companies in the EU, Feinhütte Halsbrücke GmbH is also subject to strict requirements regarding environmental protection. Modern analytics technology allows us to carry out precise qualitative and quantitative measurements of all emissions. Exhaust air and waste water from our metallurgical plants must undergo treatment to eliminate all harmful substances.
Pilot project by the Ministry for the Environment
In 2011, the pilot project for a new filter system funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU) was implemented at Feinhütte Halsbrücke GmbH. Thanks to an innovative system, we have reduced the total dust concentration in our production of non-ferrous metals to less than 1 milligram per cubic metre. A new two-stage additional filter has also been fitted downstream of the bag filter system in the form of a combination of surface and depth filters.
We preserve valuable resources and take responsibility for our environment. Active environmental protection even at the end of the product life cycle: Recycling at Feinhütte.
In 2013, Feinhütte Halsbrücke GmbH installed its own latest-generation photovoltaic system. It is making an active contribution to the energy revolution and reducing CO₂ emissions. To History.
