BDF: saving the environment while maintaining market competitiveness

2016-02-29 | Energy saving

Responding to market demands no longer means just supplying machinery to increase productivity and quality. Today’s machinery and equipment manufacturers now need to bear in mind the ever more stringent rules and regulations imposed the world over to reduce emissions and carbon footprints of glassworks. BDF is doing this and in this article the company gives us an idea of how it can assist its customers in reaching their goals.

BDF: saving the environment while maintaining market competitiveness
Glass manufacturing industries from all around the world have to face a series of challenges to maintain their financial gains. Now more than ever the laws are aimed at protecting the environment in terms of emissions, carbon footprint and recycling.

However, things are slowly changing and world’s governments are becoming more responsive to this matter by introducing new environmental laws and lowering the emission values in the near future.

With the introduction of this type of equipment,  important environmental targets can be achieved, not only by adding costs to the plant, as happens, for instance, with simple filtration systems, but also introducing economical advantages.
