contributing to global sustainable goals
- with a focus on eco-friendly buildings, Aalberts hydronic flow control developed the XStream air and dirt separator
- the company will donate the product's annual CO2 savings to two sustainable hydropower projects in Brazil
“Our goal is to create products that increase the system efficiency, are more user-friendly and more sustainable,” says Dennis Krikken, manager product management at Aalberts hydronic flow control. “The XStream air and dirt separator achieves all three. And the pledge we have made to donate the product's annual CO2 savings is testament to our commitment to sustainability and decarbonisation."
The two projects the company is contributing to are sustainable hydropower projects in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. "The two plants are sustainable in a variety of ways," says Diem Kemper, director product marketing. "First, they generate renewable energy without negative environmental impact because, unlike thermoelectric plants, they do not use fossil fuels. With their small water reservoirs, they have almost no significant environmental impact compared to large hydropower plants. By using natural beds, they do not cause damage to the soil, flora, fauna and the available water sources. In addition, the two projects contribute to regional socio-economic progress and quality of life. They thus stimulate direct local job growth, education and technological development and infrastructure. They also ensure a reliable energy supply, extra (tax) income and attract new industries. It's a very positive investment."
