New Energy Management System successfully certified to ISO 50001

2016-11-11

Yet another building block has been added to Schlötter’s integrated management system: an energy management system (EnMS). With the new certificate being handed over to Schlötter on October 26, 2016, the company is now officially certified to DIN EN ISO 50001. The new EnMS was implemented under the auspices of Energy Management Officers Dr Joachim Heermann and Günther Lehle, who were supported by an energy team with several members on-site and an external consultant. By introducing ISO 50001, the company aims at improving energy-related performance and energy efficiency continuously and identifying energy reduction possibilities. Schlötter initiated several energy projects during the past years:

  • Installation of a photovoltaic system on the roof of the administrative building (2011)
  • Construction of a new effluent treatment plant using UV-oxidation (2013)
  • Installation of a combined heat and power system (2016)

 

The new combined heat and power system (CHP) from Bosch has an electrical output of 50kW/hour and a heat output of 80 kW/hour. The heat is used for the heat cabins in chemical manufacturing. Therefore, the CHP system can be operated at nearly 100% capacity. The electrical power is also nearly exclusively used on-site. The 50001 audit was conducted by TÜV Süd and includes both the manufacture of chemicals and the construction of electroplating plants.

 

Schlötter started implementing an integrated management system more than 20 years ago. These days, the company’s management system includes a quality management system according to ISO 9001 (since 1994) an environmental management system according to 14001 (since 2006) and a safety management system based OHSAS 18001. These management systems are checked in annual audits by TÜV Süd Management Service GmbH from Munich.

 

All management systems in our company are based on the model of continual improvement (CI). Our main objective is to maintain the high quality standards of the company’s products in order to earn the trust of our customers not only today, but also in the years to come.
