Successful measures – what we have already achieved

We have already successfully implemented these measures and saved lots of energy as a result:

  • Three of the four company sites are powered exclusively by energy from renewable sources. As a result, we have managed to reduce CO2 emissions by 154 t in just six months.
  • Water is heated using solar power, which saves up to 5,500 kWh gas a year.
Neudorff's solar systems
  • Our solar power produces an annual output of 75,000 kWh.
  • Our hydroelectric power from the River Emmer can generate up to around 1 million kWh a year.
  • Since November 2013 we have been producing energy with a combined heat and power plant in our plant in Lüneburg. It generates about 350,000 kWh of electricity and 570,000 kWh of heat per year.
  • By exchanging all the old light fittings with conventional ballast for modern, energy-saving T5 and LED lighting we have been able to save 50 % or 40,000 kWh energy.  
  • Using power-heat coupling for the drying process in the production of our Sluggo Slug & Snail Killer, will reduce CO2 emissions and costs.
  • Pressure reduction and fast elimination of leaks in production saves 15 % or 10,000 kWh a year.
  • The voltage optimisation system that we installed in October 2011 saves 8 % or 100,000 kWh.
  • Installing a video conference room with a Smart Board will reduce flights and other business travel in the long-term.
  • We only use company cars with maximum emissions of 120 g CO2/km. We want to reduce fuel consumption and exhaust gases by up to 10 %.
  • We were able to recycle over 5 t of plastic waste in 2012, which otherwise would simply have been sent for thermal utilisation, i.e. incineration.
