ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AND SUSTAINABILITY

RESPONSIBILITY IN PRACTICE

The service life of sewage systems is paramount for genuinely deciding upon economic matters, whereas safety and density are key for pursuing an environmentally friendly policy. All aspects in sum lay societal questions upon current and future generations. The keyword is sustainability.


Vitrified clay pipes comply with the most stringent environmental standards. Thanks to their outstanding technical, chemical and physical features such as high resistance, impermeability and hardness (according to the Mohs scale), extremely high abrasion and corrosion resistance, they offer unique gains. Vitrified clay is up to 100 % recyclable.

A long service life in combination with low maintenance and repair costs adds to its economical viability. These benefits can be reaped over generations. With their expected life span of over 100 years, vitrified clay pipes are kind on resources and keep the costs of maintenance and repairs to a minimum.
