Kiremko focuses on sustainability

Potato equipment processor Kiremko has introduced a new concept challenging itself to improve potato processing and to work on a sustainable future. Paul Oosterlaken, director of Kiremko, explains that more and more customers asked to develop and produce lines that take the environment into account. “With the construction of our new building we have further implemented the sustainable way of working and gave this concept a name: “Kiremko Fair Future”, he says. With the construction of the new building, the company is assuming to deal consciously with the environment: 1,268 solar panels have been installed, the heat of machines is reused, office lights are dimmed when light is not needed and air is heated with recovered residual heat. Reduction of the use of water and energy, emission reduction and water recovery contribute to reduced production costs of the customers.
