Sustainable factory profile

A concept to support the design of future sustainable industries

Dombrowski, Uwe; Riechel, Christoph

The German industry caused more than a quarter (27.8%) of the total energy consumption. Factories have a high influence in resource saving during the realization of a factory and the production process. First “CO2 neutral factories” and “zero-emission factories” were realized in the last years. But they are just point solutions and these concepts are rarely used by enterprises in Germany. As part of an energy efficient optimization of factories, it is necessary to extend the focus of planning and to consider the location, the design, the integration into the environment and the potential of modern energy efficiency. Particularly the factories provides additional high saving potentials for the company. Low emission production methods or resourceefficient building practices offer opportunities for integrated environmental factory design. These approaches are integrated into the comprehensive concept “Sustainable Factory Profile (SFP)” which is described in this paper.
