    Top technology for ecologically efficient production

    Achieving more with less: The demand for an ecologically efficient production in the industrial goods business has been there for quite a while now, for a good reason: On the one hand, the legislative organs as well as the consumers are focussing more and more on means of production that preserve resources. On the other hand, they bring about advantages also to the operating companies - if they do not affect performance or profitability, of course.

    Therefore, the cumulative innovation power of Krones design and development unfolds in the enviro machines. Only in this way can we meet the standards that we have set for ourselves: equipping the beverage and food industry with trendsetting technology that allows for a production that is performant and, at the same time, gentle on resources.

    In order to assure you that we are actually meeting these demands, we have placed enviro on the test stand and had it certified by an independent expert, the TÜV SÜD. The result: Krones machines that don the enviro seal meet at least the EME standard and thus fulfil all requirements for economic as well as energy and media-efficient production.

    Fact check: the way to ecological efficiency

    How does an enviro machine come into being? Quite simply: It is the tangible result of Krones' sweeping sustainability strategy. Because a management system approved by TÜV SÜD ensures that enviro targets are firmly anchored in the product development process at Krones. So the Krones product design is oriented towards sustainability right from the start. Eventually, the ecological efficiency of the developed products is assessed wth a special enviro test procedure. This test procedure has also been certified by TÜV SÜD. It examines the machine concept with regard to

    • More efficient and eco-friendly alternatives
    • Efficiency of the used components
    • Minimisation of losses
    • Optimal configuration
    • Adjustment of the energy and medium consumption to the various operating conditions
    • Possible re-use of heat and media
    • Recirculation and recycling
    • Reduction of resources
    • Environmentally safe resources
    • Leakage detection approaches
    • Hygienic Design

    Assessment process also for new developments

    At the drinktec, all of the more than twenty exhibits are enviro-assessed. In addition, the assessment process enviro potential will be introduced by means of which new developments and models can now be checked for relevant criteria.

    Assessment of systems

    Within the scope of enviro 2.0, for the first time systems will also be assessed. In this context, we describe a "system" as being at least two machines or units combined within common boundaries. We will start with EquiTherm Brew and EquiTherm Coldfill.

    enviro 2.0

    TÜV SÜD confirms the effectiveness of the new process pattern.

    First enviro series

    With version 2.0, enviro undergoes a paradigm change: Instead of individual machines, entire series are certified. Modulfill is the first enviro-certified machine series.

    Recertification by TÜV SÜD

    TÜV SÜD examines and confirms once again the effectiveness of the enviro management system.

    Certification by TÜV SÜD

    TÜV SÜD as an independent expert confirms that the enviro management system verifiably produces eco-friendly machines that preserve resources.

    Premiere on the drinktec

    The first Krones machines pass the enviro test procedure. They are presented to a big audience of experts as an example of Krones' commitment to sustainability.
