BINDER GmbH becomes Alliance Member of Blue Competence
Sustainability initiative of the VDMA networks forces from mechanical and plant engineering
(PresseBox) (Tuttlingen, )BINDER GmbH has been an alliance member of Blue Competence since September 2012. The German Engineering Federation (VDMA) is the sponsor of the initiative. Blue Competence brings partners from trade associations, organizations, institutions and industrial companies under one roof. Together, sustainable solutions for the protection of the environment and resources are created. The goal of the initiative is to protect the environment and resources through innovative technologies and products in a sustainable manner. The primary focus of the network is an improved quality of life and efficient operations.
Competent expertise and resources are gathered from various industries including waste treatment and recycling technology to micro technology to machine tools to achieve the most efficient results. Notable companies have joined since establishment of the international Blue Competence trademark. They are all rising to the challenge of economic, environmental and social issues. Such issues are not uncharted waters for BINDER GmbH. As the world's largest specialist for simulation chambers for the scientific and industrial laboratory, the company has been committed to improving the health and safety of mankind in a sustainable manner from the first hour of product development. Moreover, BINDER feels the need to express its social responsibility towards its fellow man. As a member of the Blue Competence sustainability initiative by VDMA, BINDER GmbH can identify 100% with the goals of resource protection, efficiency and safety.
In the area of resource protection, the initiative focuses on the core area of process engineering. Byproducts of production are converted for energy use. With holistically designed systems, waste materials should be used for power and heat generation to reduce the high consumption of the limited resources.
The initiative is even working on sustainable solutions in the area of energy efficiency. Blue Competence sees great potential particularly in the chemical and pharmaceutical production process to reduce energy consumption through targeted process optimization and innovative systems.
As a third point, the network has made it their business to increase process and production safety in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, medical materials and health care products. Accurate dosing technology, elimination of contamination, complete documentation and full traceability should provide consumers with more protection in the future.
