Big Savings on CO2 Emissions Thanks to Trenchless Installation
In the jacking process, pipes are pushed through the soil after a pilot drill. Since this installation method does not require opening a trench it is ideal for densely populated areas and also provides benefits for the environment: 376,734 tons of CO2 have been saved by choosing jacking over a traditional open-trench installation of a 5.7 km-long pipe section with a diameter of 3 m in Warsaw. This number equals the yearly emissions of 104,430 medium-sized cars.
Environmental Management with ISO 14001
Based on the international standard ISO 14001 for setting up and developing an environmental management system to continuously improve environmental performance, the HOBAS Group improves its eco-balance year by year. Cost- and energy-efficient management of raw materials
and production processes is a matter of course for us, as is minimizing resource use and any impact on the environment. The ISO 14001 standard is implemented in all HOBAS Factories and compliance is monitored and proved by TÜV audits.
