ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCT DECLARATION
It is a declaration containing clear, understandable, verified and relevant information on the environmental impacts of products and services.
This is a much broader concept than simple energy efficiency; which includes topics such as:
|The reduction of pollutant emissions,|
|The use of recovered / recycled materials,|
|The thermal, acoustic and visual well-being of the occupants,|
|Site accessibility, alternative transport systems,|
|Sustainable management of the construction site,|
|Control and reduction of all the environmental impacts of a building.|
bim - building information modeling
The digital objects contained in the libraries allow to enter and share technical and information data relating to the EUROBATEX thermal insulation products.
In line with our efforts to increase the sustainability of our business activities, we switched to low CO2 emissions packaging, in accordance with the FSC certification and the principles of the ‘Circular Economy’.
BIOBASED RAW MATERIALS
By Circular Economy is meant an economy conceived to be able to regenerate itself; it is an economic system which plans to re-use materials in subsequent production cycles thus minimizing waste. Basing on such assumption, there are various methods for applying a circular economy model to one's own production activity. One of these involves transforming outputs into inputs (production waste can become a secondary raw material). Union Foam approached this method in the production process of the acoustic insulation product called Eurobatex OC.
"Industry 4.0" is a national plan that was launched and promoted by the Italian Government in 2016. The concept is based on the idea of a ‘Smart Factory’ which has the following key features:
• Smart Production: new production technologies that create collaboration between all the production elements that is co-operation between operator, machines and tools.
• Smart Service: consisting of the "IT infrastructures" and techniques that allow systems to be integrated within a company. As well as ‘smart services’ which allow separate companies to interact more efficiently with each other and with the external infrastructure (including road transport, warehouse facilities, waste management centers etc.).
• Smart Energy: the creation of better performing systems which have amongst their main objectives the reduction of energy waste according with the established international norms for sustainable energy use.
We are pleased to announce that Union Foam is participating in this innovative project, which guarantees the implementation of high quality Process and Product Quality Control, as well as tracking all significant business activities with the aim of reducing their Environmental Impact.
In fact, we believe that by using the best features of new technology, innovation and human resources, we will be able to ensure better management of the environment for the benefit of present and future generations.
