ORNAMIN produces ecologically and ethically sustainable. The responsible handling of resources is natural to us. We reject any waste of resources caused by the production of disposable products. All developed and manufactured reusable products by ORNAMIN are reusable and recyclable. They have a fundamental necessity and offer people additional benefit.
From generating energy to recycling we create our processes ecologically reasonable in order to produce in a responsible way.
Low processing temperatures:
Whilst the processing temperatures of glass are about 800 degrees and those of porcelain even over 1000 degrees, thermoplastic materials only require about 200 degrees. This is how energy is already saved while production.
Cooling of machines in a closed cooling circuit with well water:
This enables to save valuable drinking water when manufacturing the products.
For the production ORNAMIN uses exclusively recyclable materials as sustainability begins with the raw materials.
Recycling of scrap:
Occurring scrap in production is directly regranulated if possible and used again for production.
Own photovoltaic system:
ORNAMIN covers parts of its energy demand by a photovoltaic system installed on the hall roof.
When looking for new machines it is paid attention to highest possible energy efficiency and user-friendliness. The production staff is regularly trained internally and externally to get the best out of the machines.
Usage of energy
Energy management system:
For the optimisation and improvement of the energy efficiency ORNAMIN uses an energy management system which is regularly audited by an external audit firm.
Usage of machine heat:
Energy savings are also realised by using the heat of the machines e.g. for heating.
Transport & fleet
Due to the light weight less resources are required when transporting in comparison to glass or porcelain – and this applies to both when transporting raw materials as well as goods.
CO² limits for company vehicles are bindingly regulated in the corporate manual. Moreover vehicles with natural gas drive or hybrid drive are in use.
Made in Germany
From research and development to production and sales: All processes take place in Minden (Westphalia) in Germany.
Same with regards to the recycling: Scrapped products are added again to the production cycle in Minden and used to manufacture new products.
Reusable plastic tableware
Ornamin sets a sign for sustainable consumption and against increasing pollution and waste of resources and develops sustainable and reusable tableware made of high-quality plastic.
Sustainable “to go” solutions
Ornamin develops and produces sustainable solutions for take away. The coffee to go-mugs and food to go-bowls can be individually and dishwasher safely decorated. Moreover the to go bowls and lids can be equipped with RFID technology, e.g. in order to facilitate processes of payment, deposit or return.
