Extensive Solar Energy Installation
AKF Plastics has taken a significant step in its sustainability policy with the completion of an extensive solar energy project. With the installation of 1,318 solar panels covering a total area of 2,600 square meters, we are entering a new phase in our commitment to environmental protection and sustainable plastic production. These solar panels will collectively produce more than 500,000 kWh per year, making a significant contribution to energy efficiency and CO2 reduction.
Benefits for Customers
The transition to solar energy offers substantial benefits for AKF Plastics’ customers. By investing in sustainable energy sources, AKF ensures a greener production chain, contributing to our customers’ environmental objectives. Companies collaborating with AKF can reduce their own ecological footprint by sourcing products from a supplier that uses renewable energy. This not only strengthens their sustainability profile but also opens doors to new markets and customers who value social responsibility.
Benefits for AKF as an injection moulding company
For AKF Plastics, as a leading injection molding company, the investment in solar energy represents a significant advancement in efficiency and sustainability. The generated solar energy will be directly used in the production process, resulting in a substantial reduction in energy costs and a decrease in reliance on fossil fuels. This increased energy autonomy enables AKF to maintain a more stable production process, regardless of external energy price fluctuations, benefiting business continuity, in line with the Contingency Production™ strategy.
The selected solar panels for this project are of high quality and designed for longevity, ensuring the sustainability of the investment. Their high efficiency and low maintenance requirements ensure a reliable long-term energy supply. Additionally, these panels contribute to the circular economy, as they are recyclable at the end of their lifecycle, further reducing ecological impact.
This progressive step confirms AKF Plastics’ position as a leader in sustainability within the plastic industry and demonstrates our commitment to the planet’s well-being, while providing tangible benefits to our partners and customers. With this project, AKF Plastics sets a new standard for the industry, highlighting the role that companies can play in transitioning to a greener economy.
