Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
Environmental protection and sustainability have been high on our agenda for years. Ziegler is environmentally certified to ISO 14001 and energy management certified to ISO 50001.
The reduction of energy and water consumption as well as the use of materials is an integral part of our corporate policy.
We return edge waste to the production cycle whereever possible. The use of PET recycled fibres from production waste can also be realised.
PET bottles are collected and recycled in the closed PET circulation. They are pressed and then shredded to form so-called PET flakes. From these, a granulate is obtained that serves as a starting point for the production of polyethylene staple fibres. These fibres are the raw materials for nonwoven production.
- Automotive acoustics
Our acoustic products have a recyclate content of up to 80%. They also have a high purity. Several product functions can be combined in one component – with weight-saving use of material. The use of polylactide fibres is also feasible.
- Automotive seating
Today, our seating products have a recycling content of up to 55%. Individual products are pure. Our goal is to further increase the recycling content in new products as well as to develop further products for a pure product with the upper material.
The Ziegler absorption nonwovens for composite production are made 100% of recycled material.
Our furniture materials are pure and certified according to Öko-Tex Standard 100 class 1. They contain up to 80% recycled fibres.
We also offer solutions with biodegradable fibres. Please contact us!
Many insulation materials are certified according to Öko-Tex Standard 100 class 1 and are pure. They have a recyclate content of up to 80%.
Biodegradable polyester nonwoven: "Naturebound"
What seemed to be impossible has now become reality: biodegradable polyester!
Chemical sugar is added to virgin or recycled polyester fibres. In this way the fibres can be metabolised by microbes.
We process these innovative fibres into polyester nonwovens for the applications furniture, bedding and insulation. The material is also suitable for textile products like for ex. jackets, backpacks and many more.
Biological cycle: on a landfill the material biodegrades by 94 % in less than 2 years into a humus -like soil - on which plants can be grown. Should the material be brought into oceans or rivers it biodegrades by 86 % within 4,2 years. NO MICROPLASTIC remains.
Technological cycle: all biodegradable products are mono-materials and can be recycled 100 %. Thus they are fit for a circular economy.
