Eloma has vowed to place energy conservation at the heart of its product strategy as customers pay greater attention to economical sustainability.
The combi-steamer manufacturer claims it is setting standards through a consistent economical and ecological approach that puts the onus on performance.
Managing director, Stephan Wendler, says environmental consideration is even reflected in the construction of its products.
“The effective use of resources is a basic principle of our company. During production no harmful substances pollute air or water and furthermore we use district heating,” he says.
Eloma makes it a point to use only 100% recyclable packaging and claims to reject any such packing that is constructed of plastic or chemically-treated materials which can pollute the environment.
Wood used for pallets is sourced from environmentally-safe stock, while cardboard boxes and filling material are all recyclable, according to the company.
Eloma insists its multi-eco steamer is a prime example of a product that punches above its weight in the environmental protection stakes.
The equipment has received the Dr. Georg-Triebe-Innovation award and purportedly saves up to 42% in water use. Steam is produced in the oven cavity to save up to 46% energy, while the patented Autoclean system applies the exact amount of detergent according to degree of soiling.
Wendler insists the overall sustainability concept is embraced by all members of staff, with many innovations and quality improvements emanating from employees. “An environmentally aware workforce ensures that environmental consideration is an important aspect of our corporate structure,” he says.
