There are two strands of CEL Components sustainability, productive and indirect. Firstly, we intervene with measures and approaches that have an impact on production, easing its impact. On the other hand, we are vehicles of sustainability for those who use our sandwich panels. For three reasons:
By choosing suppliers not far from our production centre, we trigger a virtuous process that produces spin-offs for the organisation, the territory that hosts it, and the local economy. In addition:
The new CEL Components site is the result of a strong drive to do good.
It is proof that the balance between organisational and production requirements and respect for the environment creates value on all dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social, ecological.
A project for the redevelopment of a disused industrial area, without consuming additional land.
Equipped with a photovoltaic system, it is completely self-sufficient in terms of energy, inheriting and amplifying the good daily practices already in use in the previous plant. A new environment in which employees find a higher level of well-being and beauty, a source of inspiration. The wellbeing of employees is important, there will be equipped green spaces in the new area
PET, from used bottles panels for a thousand applications
PET foam is another core of our sandwich panels. A thermoplastic material whose use allows for drastic weight reduction. It is obtained from recycled plastic bottles.
For some applications, polypropylene honeycomb is more suitable than aluminium. Lightness and strength are common denominators as is the possibility of post-milling recycling with granulators.
Composed of 95% aluminium, COMPOCEL AL panels can be melted down and the aluminium reused over and over again. The aluminium skins used for this panel are composed, between 44 and 72%, precisely of recycled aluminium.
Foundries buy scrap and waste from recovery companies, once melted it can return to the production cycle.
The remaining 5% consists of glues and bonding resins that evaporate during the melting of the panel.
COMPOCEL AL is provided with Material Passport and BIM model.
CEL is working on a "Green" panel made of balsa and flax fibre, two natural materials with a very low environmental impact.
