Clean Production


Clean Production

Our production work culture is team-oriented. We work together to reach high-level safety, quality, efficiency, and sustainability goals in all of our manufacturing facilities.

Over the years, we have:

  • reduced the amount of VOCs by 250 000 litres by eliminating Isopropanol as a solvent for stearate coating.
  • phased out phtalates, used for softening purposes, in 2004.
  • found a phenolic resin to use with lower content of free monomers over 15 years ago.
  • eliminated use of chromium (for colour).

In 2012,

  • we eliminated the use of the toxic substance cryolite (two tonnes per year) entirely.

Currently,

• we are developing a process that is xylene-free for fine grit production. This process will be used to manufacture waterproof finishing sheets, a Mirka niche product.
