Environment and energy
Respect for the environment is common sense - and good
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

By choosing textile ducts you are doing something good for
- 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
- A properly dimensioned fabric system is able to function
optimal at a lower pressure drop than conventional ceiling
- 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
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
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

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.
