Insights into our climate-neutral company:
In order to achieve our high accuracy requirements, Diebold operates air-conditioned production rooms as well as fully air-conditioned rooms for spindle and measuring equipment assembly. These production areas are highly efficient and temperature-controlled to a constant temperature of 21°C. In addition, the cooling water of the grinding machines is tempered to the same temperature of 21°C. Nevertheless, only little external energy is required. 80% of the cooling capacity is provided by free cooling with air or river water. Only 20% must be generated via the chiller units.We also feed our photovoltaic system with 30,000 kWh of green electricity into the grid every year and heat our buildings in an environmentally friendly way with renewable raw materials. We produce according to the principles of sustainability and environmental friendliness, without losing sight of customer benefits and the high quality of our products.
The buildings are heated with heat that we obtain from the neighboring Bioenergie Killertal, where the heat is generated from renewable raw materials. In the complete Diebold factory, there have been no burning points for oil or gas since 2012. In the newly renovated hall 1 in 2019 and in the newly constructed automatic raw material warehouse, we heat only by heat recovery, with 96% efficiency, i.e., 96% of the previous heating costs are saved and thus 96% less Co2 is produced. This investment has reduced heating costs for the entire factory by 30%, which also reduces the Co2 emissions of the entire factory by 30%. At the same time, there is a complete air exchange per hour in the entire production, which means a significantly better air quality for the employees compared to before.
