Resource-saving production at BRAND
Our contribution for our environment
BRAND uses 100 % renewable energy from certified hydroelectric power plants. With the Wertheim public utility company, we have found a regional partner to help us achieve this. We produce some of our own electricity as a by-product of the heat generated in our combined heat and power unit. This is an efficient use of energy.
To prevent unnecessary packaging, we try as much as possible to have our production materials delivered in reusable packages, which are then returned to the supplier and refilled multiple times. To prevent long transport routes, we work with regional suppliers to procure many of our production materials.
Material-saving pipette tips
Our pipette tips also demonstrate how
we are working to increase the resource
efficiency of consumables. We developed
a production method that allows us to
manufacture our tips in an especially
thin-walled design, which in turn saves
materials. With the TipRack refilling
system, we have also reduced the amount
of waste by more than 20 % when
compared with the TipBox.
