"The quality of water determines the extent of human health as well as the ecosystem."
Water management is, of course, important, for our EMAS certification as well. However, from an environmental protection point of view, it does not play a major role at our company headquarters in Tettnang.
Here, water is used exclusively for sanitation and in the lab for waterproof testing and washing tests and then discharged into the municipal sewage system. Water consumption is recorded by our water utility and regularly assessed.
In our Made in Germany production facility, no water is needed for processing so we do not recycle or reuse water here.
We use the water from a 20,000 liter rainwater tank as service water, e.g. for toilet flushing. We only use tap water if the rainwater tank is empty.
The total water supply for our Tettnang-Obereisenbach headquarters is provided by the municipal water utility. The source of our drinking water is a groundwater aquifer from the Bodnegg District.
In the water protection area, rainfall amounts ensure adequate groundwater renewal. The natural cycle is not disturbed by groundwater extraction.
The groundwater is so well protected by natural means from environmental influences that it is possible to directly feed pumped water without treatment into our distribution network.
Rainwater is collected in two ponds on the company premises that are available for fire safety. They are wonderful biotopes for amphibians and are also used by employees as a rest area and for tadpole observation of the childcare center.
