De Rijswaard is constantly aware of our corporate social responsibility. Priorities in the areas of energy saving and sustainable production are deeply rooted in our policy, but are also deeply relevant in our daily practice.
In our pursuit of the lowest possible energy consumption, we demonstrate that efficient production and environmental care go hand in hand. For example, we have two CHP plants for recovering the heat released from our flue gases and converting it back into new energy. Residual heat released during the cooling process of the bricks is reused in the drying tunnel. And via a unique energy monitoring system, we keep a close eye on how many cubic metres of gas we use when firing the bricks.
Solar panels are the latest Rijswaard innovation within the context of sustainable entrepreneurship. More than 25,000 m2 of our storage yard will be covered in 2019. Over half of the roof area will be fitted with solar panels, to enable us to meet most of our electricity needs. 12,000 m2 are fitted with 7700 solar panels!
