Componenta's production comprises foundries, forges and machine shops and these have different environmental impacts. Most of the Group's environmental impact arises from the melting of aluminium and iron.
The foundries create most of Componenta's environmental impact. The melting of aluminium and iron requires much energy, and the process also needs water. Foundry operations also give rise to waste, emissions, noise and odours.
Utilising the heat energy created in melting and re-using the waste from the production process give major savings that benefit the environment. Installing various filtering and other equipment reduces noise and emissions.
