Resource-saving production SUSTAINABILITY Conserving resources in production is second nature to AGRU. At AGRU, envi- ronmental protection starts in the product development phase. Flow simulations and materials analyses are the basis for the de- sign of fittings that save energy in oper- ation and achieve the same rigidity with less polymer in the mould. Procurement processes that set store by high quality, resource-conserving manufacturing pro- cesses and extremely long lifespans con- tribute to sustainability in all AGRU prod- ucts. INTERNAL CIRCULAR ECONOMY Process waste arisings are recycled in production, adding to sustainability. Residual amounts of polymers arising during the production process are sorted into their different fractions. So they can be returned to the materials cycle and put to good use. 15
