Being temporarily guests on our planet earth we feel the responsibility to pay utmost attention to get our production facilities as ‘green’ as we can. Within Air Spiralo® Group we have programs to save on energy consumption, minimize the volume of waste, to divide waste and reuse wherever possible. Our intercompany logistics programs take care of minimal transport and efficiency in truck loading.

During the process of tube forming and pressing some oil/emulzion is needed and cannot be prevented. We were searching green process optimizing and are proud to announce that all our facilities are using bio-degradable vegetable oil instead of mineral oil during tube forming and pressing.
The environmental advantages are impressive; the process of refining vegetable oil instead of mineral oil is much cleaner and requires less energy, vegetable oil is bio-degradable and drilling for oil is no longer required. Furthermore it creates a healthier environment for the employees and by using this bio-degradable oil we comply to REACH!

REACH is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The law entered into force on 1 June 2007. The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, REACH aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. The benefits of the REACH system will come gradually, as more and more substances are phased into REACH.

We continue to search for green alternatives in the entire Air Spiralo® Group!
