Themes at Draka Interfoam BV
Draka Interfoam has a social responsibility and exemplary role in complying with laws and regulations. Our policy has always focused on restricting the impact to the environment to an absolute minimum. With this in mind we have also taken a number of measures to reduce our ecological footprint.
Our products are free from harmful substances and thus comply with current laws and regulations, including REACH.
Chemical production process
We are aware of the increasingly stringent environmental requirements that are translated into modifications in our production process. We devote continuous attention to limiting disposals using modern technology. Where unavoidable disposals exist we strive to reuse for other applications as much as possible.
We have press trucks, the largest in the sector, and thus positively contribute to the environment. Our press trucks can transport up to a maximum of 325 m3. In comparison with a normal truck’s volume of 80 m3, this represents a significant reduction in the number of kilometres driven and emissions. Our rolled goods can also be compressed to less than 50% of their original volume making transport and storage considerably more efficient.
We have always played a pioneering role in recycling in our company to save on valuable resources. We are working on limiting our trim foam to a minimum. All our trim foam is reworked into rebound foam so as a result it acquires a new application; waste has no part in our operations. The foam can even be recycled at the end of the end product’s lifecycle. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for advice on recycling our foam products.
