While SNF’s products help to preserve natural resources, we are also determined to keep our impact on the environment during the manufacturing process to a minimum.
SNF is constantly improving its processes to protect the environment. We’ve made changes in our factories to limit waste and discharges.
We have eliminated processes that consume large quantities of water. In fact, we have reduced our specific water consumption for each product by seven times in the space of ten years.
Our rinsing water is re-circulated through the installation, in order to lower the quantity needed by 70%.
We’ve taken great care to ensure our manufacturing processes minimise the environmental impact of our operations. Our primary monomer is produced enzymatically at room temperature under atmospheric pressure. This biological catalytic process makes us a soft chemistry pioneer.
The safety, health and welfare of all SNF employees is of utmost importance to us.
The choice of processes, installation design, and employee training ensure that production activities are extremely safe.
We are dedicated to:
