Miba’s 2019 sustainability efforts could charge 100,000 electric cars

June 29, 2020

Miba AG, Laakirchen, Austria, reports that through its sustainability efforts, to use less energy and water, and avoiding waste, it has increased energy efficiency in the group by some 3,665 megawatt-hours over the past financial year. With this energy-saving, Miba states that 100,000 electric cars could be charged. 

In addition to some large projects, such as the replacement of hundreds of lamps, it is mainly minor optimisations that lead to continuous improvement, the company states. These include the efficient use of compressed air and air conditioning systems, as well as the optimisation and modernisation of its machine park.

The group states that the sustainable use of water is particularly important to Miba. In the past financial year, it has achieved a saving of 2.5 million litres in terms of water consumption through efficiency improvements, which could reportedly fill 17,000 bathtubs.

According to Miba, preventing waste is also an important goal in order to produce sustainably and thus contribute to an even cleaner planet. In the past financial year, the group states that it was able to avoid 1,700 tons of waste. Said to be the amount of waste that around 3,500 Europeans produce each year.

For Miba, the corporate mission “Technologies for a cleaner planet” means not only to make vehicles, ships, aircraft, construction and agricultural machinery more efficient and environmentally friendly with its products, or to offer technologies for the sustainable generation, transmission and storage of energy. 

“It also means that we contribute to a clean planet through our careful use of energy, water and other resources,” stated F Peter Mitterbauer, Miba CEO. “That’s why we are working worldwide to continuously optimise energy and water consumption and waste volumes in production and administration. And every employee can also make a contribution to the daily work by using resources as gently as possible.”

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
