Innovation through sustainability

Sustainability is particularly important to us as a company with chemical production processes. Commitment to the sustainability of our technologies, plants and operations is one of our fundamental principles. Our commitment goes beyond EU regulations and certificates. With resource-saving and environmentally friendly processes, protective measures for employees and a focus on regional sourcing, we help protect the environment and people. Over the past decades, we have pushed a number of initiatives and modernizations to recycle processed materials. For example, in our production waste, silver and raw polyamides are separated and processed so that silver can be reused in a new production process.

CO₂ footprint

How is the CO₂ footprint created?

The CO₂ footprint of our yarns and farics is made up of many different components. The level of CO₂ emissions from the raw material, production processes, logistics and packaging play an important role here.

CO₂ reduction

Measures for CO₂ reduction

In order to be able to save CO₂, we are taking a closer look at our production and value chain. Where do our raw materials come from? What transport routes do they use? How can we improve our own production steps? Emissions are generated along the entire value chain from raw material to metallized textile. In order to keep these emissions and the CO₂ burden as low as possible, we have already taken various actions:

Pretreatment wastewater

Pretreatment wastewater

The silvering process has been greatly modernized and made more efficient in recent years. Particular attention has been paid to wastewater treatment and water consumption. The wastewater is returned to the water cycle in a preclarified state. This process is monitored both internally and externally.

Charging columns & e-cars in the vehicle fleet

Charging columns & e-cars in the vehicle fleet

As part of the company car regulation, we pay attention to increase the purchase of e-cars. In addition, Shieldex has two charging stations for e-cars, which are available to employees and visitors.

Separation and reprocessing of silver & polyamide in waste production

Separation and reprocessing of silver & polyamide in waste production

For several years now, we have been feeding our production rejects into a recycling process so that the recovered metals can subsequently be reused.

Recycled Materials & Packaging

Recycled Materials & Packaging

Our yarn cones are made of recycled paper. When shipping our products, we mostly use cardboard boxes made from recycled material.

Short transportation routes

Short transportation routes

We are proud of our quality "Made in Germanv". We also source the material for our products exclusively from the EU and can therefore save CO₂ on short transport routes.

Recycled yarn

Recycled yarn

Recently we have started to use for a special selection of our yarns recycled polvamide yarn, which is obtained from plastic waste and processed by us.

C0₂ Kompensation

We compensate

Due to our production process, it is of particular importance for us to intervene in our value chain when we identify technical solutions that can protect the environment. In doing so, we may reach our limits in terms of CO₂ savings. That is why we compensate for unavoidable emissions in order to offer a climate-neutral product.

Produktrücknahme & Recycling

We take back your product!

As an international leader in the field of metallized textiles, we develop and produce textile and flexible solutions for people and machines. Shieldex uses first-class materials and at the same time focuses on sustainable processing and quality. Our customers trust in us and our products.
We are aware of this responsibility and actively take back unused or leftover materials from our customers. By taking back and recycling our products, we, and our customers, make an important contribution to natural resource conservation and sustainability.

"We attach great importance to the sustainable and, above all, resource-conserving production of our materials. With our passion for innovation, combined with long-standing tradition and deeply rooted corporate values, it is particularly important to lead the way as a family-run medium-sized company and to spread and implement sustainable thinking - for a future worth living."
