Resource Efficiency and Waste Management
Increasing resource efficiency and reducing material input
Wienerberger is making a continuous effort to optimize the use of its resources. Our particular focus is on reducing raw material consumption. The Clay Building Materials Europe business unit, for example, is devoting special attention to the optimization and further development of roof tiles. The finite element method (FEM) is used to increase resource efficiency in production and further improve product properties at the same time. Thus, the high transverse breaking strength and the frost resistance of our roof tiles have been further improved and material input in production has been reduced. Figures on the total amount of raw materials used in the Wienerberger Group cannot be disclosed for reasons of the company’s intellectual property rights in product and production technologies.
