Langenfeld: Centrally located in Western Europe
Due to its location and proximity to the motorways A1, A3, A46, A59, Langenfeld is an ideal location to serve our customers in Germany and abroad.
Furthermore, Cologne and Düsseldorf airports are quite near (about 25 Km),providing optimal connections to the international civil aviation network.
Our plant viewed from the top…
Our plant area covers approx. 5,500 square meters surrounded by greenery. We are producing our own solar energy since 2014.
We’re spinning the big wheel…
After one year of projecting, the building application has been submitted! Beoplast is planning to build the first large wind turbine in Langenfeld. On a 30 m high mast there is the 9.5 kW generator, driven by a 6.5 m large wind wheel. This constitutes a further keystone in our energy mix: purchase of green-energy in combination with our own photovoltaic and wind, coupled with high energy efficiency. When the sun is shining, the wind is mostly light. But when clouds cover the sun, the wind often blows. And at night you are dependent on wind anyway. Beoplast, as a large energy consumer, also needs electricity on non-production days – for the standby operation of the machines, for the servers and, of course, for one or the other electro mobile.
We use energy sensibly. The waste heat from our compressors is used on the one hand for heating of the production hall and on the other hand via heat exchangers for heating the offices.
(Illustrative example: for the unused waste heat from our compressors, 45 containers (40-foot) would be filled with warm air per hour.)
