European Environmental Bureau recognises the sustainability of Roth products

08/04/2021

In a recently published investigation report, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) has acknowledged the sustainability of the product range of Buchenau-based Roth Werke.

The report sheds light on the efforts of companies in the European heating industry with respect to European climate goals. According to those goals, the European Union (EU) is obligated to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 percent (based on 1990 levels) by 2030. In addition, the heads of state and government in the EU have affirmed the goal of reaching climate neutrality by 2050. According to a publication from the European Commission, heating and cooling in buildings and industry make up about half of energy consumption in the EU. The EEB study pointed out that, in particular, the use of heat pumps can contribute to reaching those goals. In its publication, the European Environmental Bureau recognised Roth Werke as a European company that has gone all in on a product range that is exclusively based on renewable energy production. The report appeared as part of the Coolproducts Campaign, which was created by member organisations of the EEB, the umbrella association of over 160 European environmental organisations.

Environmentally friendly building equipment from Roth
The product range of the Roth family company encompasses a large selection of heat pump systems for many different uses as well as the Roth radiant heating and cooling systems. Because of the low inlet temperatures of underfloor heating systems, these systems are ideal when paired with heat pumps and comprise a system that is sustainable in its entirety. For energy storage, Roth offers the Thermotank Quadroline plastic storage tank. Its design makes it energy-efficient when in operation. Its plastic composite material and its stable outer cover made from high-performance EPS insulation efficiently minimise loss of heat. The Thermocoat plus version of the Roth Thermotank has been awarded an A energy rating. With its carbon footprint, the Roth plastic storage tank also saves energy twice, since it is manufactured in an environmentally friendly process. Roth analysed the carbon footprint using the example of a 500-litre buffer storage tank compared to a standard steel storage tank with the same specifications. That analysis found that the manufacturing process of the container showed a greenhouse gas impact that was about 60 percent lower per container.
The Roth product range also includes solar energy systems for solar heating of swimming pool water using the Roth Heliopool solar energy collector. The family-owned company has a wide range of rainwater systems on offer, which also provide solutions for retention and infiltration. Christin Roth-Jäger, Managing Director of Roth Werke, explains: "We are pleased that the EEB has honoured our strategic approach of producing environmentally friendly products. Environmental protection is an essential aspect of our company's principles and is essential to the operational and production processes in our factories as well. At our sites, we have already implemented climate-neutral work processes."
