Spiraling energy costs, government restrictions on emissions, and limited resources - going green makes business sense more than ever before. That's why SMS group focuses on the vast scope available for integrating energy saving and eco solutions in metallurgical processes.
Crucial for resource-efficient technologies is streamlining production and boosting yields. There is even more potential for savings when you take a broader perspective. This means looking not just at individual parts of the plant, but also at the whole process. You can recycle recovered energy or residues in your entire plant to substitute expensive input materials. However, all methods that protect resources must be transparent and easy to grasp.
The SMS group response is our "ecoplants" label. It indicates especially eco-friendly solutions. That shows we take sustainability seriously as a key growth factor for both economic and ecological reasons.
Here is how we combine sustainability and business success:
Given ever scarcer resources and a growing world population, sustainability is a must. Against this backdrop, VDMA has created the Blue Competence sustainability initiative. SMS group supports the Blue Competence initiative as one of already more than 400 partners from the European mechanical and plant engineering industry.
To help you streamline all sections of your metallurgical process chain, we develop technologies to our strict ecoplants standards. Some 85 technologies that deal with the most energy-intensive flashpoints prove our pioneering role.
