Environmental Protection

We are proud to say that all sites of Freudenberg in Brazil are ISO 14000 certified. And beyond the legal demands originated by local, state, and federal regulations, Freudenberg companies in Brazil are going the extra mile by aiming to improve their systems for environmental protection even further.

At EagleBurgmann, all the conventional taps were changed for “green” ones, resulting in a significant water saving and it also included a local wastewater treatment station, where around 5,000 liters of water are reused weekly for gardening, external and pieces washing.

At Chem-Trend, effluents originated from the production have dropped significantly (around 30 - 40 percent) with simple measures like the limitation of pressured water injected into the manufacturing tanks and the establishment of a simple and visual control system for the cleaning process of reusable tanks. The concern about the environment is also strong at Vibracoustic where rubber scraps are now recycled and transformed into shoe soles and flooring material for soccer fields and playgrounds; resulting in a considerable reduction of expenses.
