Why captiqs® products?
CUSTOMER SURVEY 2015
As we are convinced that a product that is less harmful creates more value for our customers, the captiqs brand focuses on reducing the environmental impact of both its processes and products.
We realize that the sustainability journey has only begun, however we are proud of the results that we have already accomplished.
• Renewable energy:
in Balta Oudenaarde we have an annual production of 1.716 MWh solar energy
per year, representing about 12,7% of our energy consumption.
• Audit convenant:
balta oudenaarde participates since 2007 at the audit convenant, a screening
system for energy consumption; the implementations of the recommendations
resulted in a decrease of energy consumption of 4% in the period between 2007
• Air emissions
our latex line stentor is the only source of air emissions; as a result most of the air
emissions consist of water vapour.
• Water intake
the latex process is the only process that uses fresh water; to limit its water intake
we use the cleaning water of the latex process to make new latex foam.
• Water emissions
Only 10% of our process wastewater ends up in a water treatment plant, since
90% of our wastewater is used to make new latex foam.
• Solid waste
• Postindustrial latex-free waste: 100% recycled
(15% internal and 85% external material recycling).
• Postindustrial latex-bonded waste: 100% external recycling
(conversion into energy).
• Packaging waste : 100% material recycling.
• % recycled content:
our products have on average 30% post industrial
• All our raw materials & process aids are
100% reach compliant.
