Environment and energy

Respect for the environment is common sense - and good business

At KE Fibertec we care about the environment and about energy. We want to make as little harm to the environment as possible both in production and in transportation of our products. Therefore, we have launched a number of in-house energy-saving initiatives to limit the CO2 emission.

To show concern for the environment is to show responsibility and sustainable considerations. On top of that, it is good business.

KE Fibertec is certified acc. to ISO 14001 (environment) and DS/OHSAS 18001 (working environment), and our textile ducts are based on Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified yarns (12.0.03665).

Cradle to Cradle
We have recently achieved a Cradle to Cradle certification of CradleVent documenting the sustainability of the product.

EPD
You can also download an EPD on textile ducts from KE Fibertec. The EPD is an environmental product declaration that documents the life cycle environmental impact of a product.


By choosing textile ducts you are doing something good for the environment:

  • Because of the low weight of textile ducts the fuel consumption during transport (and therefore the CO2 emission) will decrease remarkably compared with transporation of traditional steel ducts
  • A properly dimensioned fabric system is able to function optimal at a lower pressure drop than conventional ceiling diffusers
  • The air distribution with textile ducts is better, and it is therefore possbile to offer a solution that does not take in "unnecessary" air. This results in energy efficiency - and a better indoor environment.

 

Environmental Mapping

To minimize resource requirements and monitor our initiatives the KE Fibertec group carries out an environmental mapping process every third year. With this documentation we are able to determine if our environmental objectives have been reached and define new and ambitious objectives.

We want to reduce our consumption of Electricity, Gas, CO2, SO2, NOx and wastewater discharge, and by comparing with our turnover we get a good picture of how well we use our ressources.

From 2006 to 2014 our ability to save energy and minimize the environmental impacts has improved considerably which can be seen from the graphs below:

From Textile Waste to Fashionable Overcoat
The KE Fibertec weaving mill has supplied two young students at the Design School Kolding with textile scraps. In this way the materials are not wasted but re-cycled and used in another context. Read more...

All electric power consumed by KE Fibertec and our
weaving mill (KE Fibertec Væveri) is generated by
windmills. Consequently, it is CO2 neutral and
not harmful to the environment.
