At Pago, environmental protection forms an integral part of our company philosophy.
Statutory provisions and official regulations on environmental protection form the framework for optimised production processes. In addition to this, responsible procedures with regard to raw materials and the environment are derived from our basic quality principles. Here at Pago, we continually reduce the impact both on mankind and the environment through regular improvements to our acquisition and production procedures.
The avoidance of waste and the consistent conservation of resources are the highest priorities for us. In all production areas, the use of modern technology plays a part in achieving this. Any waste material generated is recycled where possible.
Through the increased awareness, motivation, information and training of our employees, we endeavour to create safe, low-impact working conditions within our company. In the sense of a constant optimisation of the environmental compatibility of our products and company processes, we regularly check for adherence to regulations. Where any deviations are found from our fundamental quality principles, controlling measures are rapidly implemented.
|Our measures in the environmental sector |
|Systematic waste separation and feedback for recycling |
|Thermal utilisation of production wastes (alternative fuel for cement industry)|
|Modern building management system permits efficient handling of the technical plants and targeted procedures in case of faults or the resolution of alarm conditions |
|Monitoring of climate data in production areas documents the demonstrably high quality demands on the room conditioning system|
|Use of compaction plants to optimise transport in the disposal sector |
|Legally appropriate disposal of special wastes |
|Constant checking of disposal paths |
|Reclamation and recycling of heat emitted by machines |
|Closed cooling-water circuits |
|Latest incinerator technology / optimised energy consumption |
|Latest refrigeration technology (turbo compressors / optimised energy consumption)|
|Building is periodically checked for energy efficiency (energy efficiency check) in order to lower emissions and energy costs. In this context, building technology and plant technology are constantly being improved and optimised|
|Use of energy-saving fluorescent lighting tubes |
|Latest control technology on printing machines for reduction of spoilage|
|Large reel changers for reduction of production waste |
|Systematic switch-off (during pauses and set-up procedures)|
|Process heat is systematically utilised and fed back into the heating circuit|
|Exhaust air treatment via active charcoal filters (solvent contaminated exhaust air and to some extent ozone contaminated exhaust air)|
|Closed circuit for washing plant (screens, doctor knives etc.) with filtration|
|Increased use of VOC-free cleaning agents for reduction of impact on employees and the environment |
|Use of reclaimed products as washing agent for the printing plant and for the manufacture of printing forms |
|De-silverisation plant for the film developing machines |
|Waste heat from air compression is used to produce process hot water|
|Laser system for the manufacture of printing plates |
|Constant search for alternative solutions and opportunities for substitution |
|Incorporation of environmental activities into the QM system |
|Installation of central printing systems in the administration area (saving of paper, energy and reduction of contamination of the air in the room)|
