Sustainability and efficiency

Today, more than ever, sustainability is the focus of many companies and consumers. CARLO ERBA Reagents GmbH also attaches great importance to sustainable practices and environmentally friendly products. As a responsible company, we not only want to offer high-quality solutions, but also contribute to reducing the ecological footprint.

In this age of environmental awareness and climate change, the importance of sustainable practices in industry is becoming increasingly apparent. One pioneering initiative in this area is known as green manufacturing. This innovative approach aims to minimize the environmental impact of production and use resources more efficiently, while increasing the competitiveness of companies.


What is Green Manufacturing?

Green manufacturing refers to an approach in which ecological aspects are taken into account in production processes. The aim is to minimize environmental impact, reduce resource consumption and promote a sustainable production chain. This is achieved by implementing environmentally friendly technologies and practices.


The benefits of Green Manufacturing:

Green manufacturing offers a variety of benefits to businesses and the environment. Energy consumption can be significantly reduced through the use of energy-efficient technologies and renewable energy sources. This not only reduces costs, but also lowers greenhouse gas emissions and reduces the environmental footprint. In addition, the optimization of production processes leads to a more efficient use of resources, resulting in cost savings and improved competitiveness.

FASTER Green Manufacturing

The fundamental issue of any industrial production aimed at reducing environmental impact is the energy needed to run the factory:   


Thus, the FASTER factory is entirely powered by solar panels on the roof of the building.


The FASTER Building Management System:

This innovative system of FASTER building management allows energy to be generated at all times for the unrestricted operation of the factory. Especially during the hottest hours of the day, energy harvesting reaches its full potential and contributes significantly to the energy supply.
Even on days when there is no sunshine, the system can draw on external energy sources. By combining efficient energy generation with intelligent energy management, the system helps to optimize energy consumption and minimize the use of environmentally harmful resources. This not only increases the sustainability of the factory, but also achieves long-term cost savings.

FASTER Recycling Structure

An important aspect of green manufacturing in the metal industry is the recycling and reuse of waste materials. At FASTER, efficient processes have been implemented to collect, reuse and recycle waste materials. 

But FASTER goes a step further by purchasing components such as lamps, electronic cards, and other materials used to assemble safety cabinets on the market and then paying a consortium to recycle this packaging. In this way, FASTER ensures that these materials are not wasted and can be recycled.

Everything is also recycled and reused in the manufacture of the safety cabinets. Waste only accounts for about 20% of the material purchased. For FASTER, green manufacturing is not just a slogan, but a mission in action. FASTER is proud to take a sustainable approach to production, making a significant contribution to protecting the environment. By promoting recycling, reuse and the use of recyclable materials, FASTER sets an example for responsible action and shows that environmentally friendly production is possible.

Together with our customers and partners, FASTER is working to make the future of production more sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Energy efficiency

A key aspect of our sustainability efforts lies in the sustainability and energy efficiency of our products. Our FASTER product range is characterized by its low energy consumption. By using state-of-the-art technologies and an innovative design, we have succeeded in significantly reducing the power consumption of our products.

Our safety cabinets are designed to have low power consumption, thus contributing to a reduction in their energy requirements. In addition, we use high-quality materials that are durable and resistant to ensure a long life of the workbenches. With our safety workbenches, you not only get a reliable and safe working environment, but also a sustainable solution for your needs.

Since power consumption values can vary depending on the model, size and features of the products, it is important to refer to the specific information on our website. Our products are designed to ensure efficient and environmentally friendly operation, and we place a high priority on providing you with energy-efficient solutions.
