Although we feel a closer affinity to craftsmanship, we are an industry in Solingen. Of course, we cannot manufacture without producing any waste but we endeavour to keep this as low as possible.
Most of our raw material waste is recycled and thus flows back into circulation. Any steel residue remaining after the blades have been cut is sent back to the steelworks to be reused.
Our grindery works within a closed water cycle with nitrite-free coolants for grinding. The water is filtered in a modern processing plant on our premises and returned to the cycle. The fine steel chips left in the grinding water and the abrasives from the grinding stones are separated by a filter. A paste-like residue is all that remains and needs to be disposed of.
