To produce so many fibres, a great deal of energy is required, which we generate in our own power plant. The 12 burners in our power plant are fired with environmentally compatible natural gas which contains virtually no pollutants, thus causing neither soot nor dust emissions. This power plant in island operation, i.e. unconnected to the public mains network, functions according to the environmentally friendly principle of power-heat linkup, thus generating both electricity and steam for the production process at the same time. As a result of multiple energy utilisation, efficiency levels of over 90% can be achieved and thus lie far above the efficiency levels of conventional power plants.
