Environmental Care

Since our plant is an isolated industrial location that is embedded in the nature of the river Günz valley, the nature inside and outside of our plant doors is the best indicator for our environmental performance. Our production plant is existing in an unusual and unique symbioses of chemical industry and nature. Natural ponds and lots of green everywhere in between the plant are home to many birds, fish and plants found in the region.

To keep this unique environment we are working hard to minimize and clean all air emissions and waste waters. As a recognition of our environmental achievements, Chemische Fabrik Karl Bucher GmbH has been awarded the “Umweltpreis des Landkreis Günzburg” (Environmental Award of the Günzburg Authority District) in 2010.

All our production processes are investigated to potential chemical and process related hazards in intenisve risk analysis by internal and external safety experts. Plants are designed to minimize all identified hazards and to compensate potential deviations from standard reaction parameters.

All employees are subject to regular health examinations. Potential exposures to chemical hazards are minimized by using closed systems whenever possible. In addition state of the art ventilation and protection equipment is used to protect the health of our workers.
