Resource-saving combined heat and power plant in Stockdorf
At the company’s headquarters, a natural-gas-fired combined heat and power plant produces electricity and heat. If possible, Webasto will also introduce this solution at other locations.
CO2-neutral thermo-headquarters in Gilching
On the roof of our thermo-headquarters in Gilching, a photovoltaic system has an electrical output of 46 kW. It is one of the largest of its kind in Europe. The building is heated by a wood chip plant on a CO2-neutral basis. In the summer, the facilities and offices are cooled by water extracted from a deep well.
Waste heat utilization in Neubrandenburg
In the world’s largest plant for parking heaters, auxiliary heaters and electrical high-voltage heaters in Neubrandenburg, Webasto uses the heat generated during product tests to heat the production halls. Amount of energy saved: about 35 percent. Enough energy to heat 23 single-family houses for one year.
Optimized logistics concept
At Webasto, environmental protection does not stop at the plant’s doors: the optimized logistics concept includes e.g. the prevention of empty runs for trucks, the recycling of transport containers and the reduction of waste by using optimized packaging units.
