Respecting the environment

ALUMIL, a continuously growing developer and producer of aluminium systems, recognizes that economic growth can and must go hand in hand with a healthy and safe environment. Therefore it has been always an important part of its goals to combine its dynamic activity with the necessary respect to the environment, by protecting and improving it. For this reason, since 2002 the company implements a certified environmental management system according to EN ISO 14001.

To protect actively the environment, and not just theoretically, we take the following measures:

  • We establish clear and measurable targets, where possible, to assess our performance in environmental protection. 
  • We carry out environmental inspections in a regular basis and introduce energy saving measures. 
  • We offer appropriate environmental education to our staff, especially to staff with important environmental responsibilities.
  • We implement waste minimization and recycling improvement strategies. 
  • We take the environmental performance of our suppliers into account. 
  • New expansion or development activities are based also on environmental criteria. 
  • We establish procedures for the neutralization and proper disposal of waste. 
  • Funding of all those measures to achieve our environmental objectives.

Recycling and reduce of waste disposal

We are dedicated to support the friendliness of the production processes towards the environment, the prevention and reduction of pollution, the preservation of energy, natural resources and consumables, the search and development of alternative and renewable energy sources and the least possible negative environmental impact.

  • 2007: Water recycling across the entire production process. Through specific actions we achieved to reduce our water consumption by over 80% in our extrusion and anodizing lines and by 40% in our powder coating lines.
  • 2007: We undertook an “electrical energy saving” program and reduced our overall electrical energy consumption by 12%> 2008: By changing our energy supply from LPG to Natural Gas, we reduced our carbon dioxide footprint by 124%.> 2008: We use completely chrome-free dying processes. In addition, through the environmental upgrade of our powder coating line, we reduced the use of chemical compounds during the process of liquid waste and improved the overall quality of liquid waste.
  • 2009: Special installation for collection and recycling/re-use of excess powder coating paint that does not agglutinate on the aluminium surface.> 2010: Recycling of aluminium scrap through our advanced in-house aluminium foundry. By using recycled high quality aluminium, the needed electrical energy is 95% less than the energy needed for electrolysis of alumina. Moreover, our foundry is one of the few in the world powered partially by solar energy.
  • 2014: We apply a holistic recycling approach along our entire production plant and try to recycle every kind of waste produced out our factories. Notably, on 2014 we recycled approximately 1000 tonnes of non-metallic waste.
  • 2017: We replaced all HPS lamps of our production facilities with new ecofriendly LED lamps, saving 80% in electrical energy consumed for lighting.
