Save Energy Today.
Save The Planet For Tomorrow
Vinyl or PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is one of the most versatile, sustainable polymers today. It is composed predominantly of naturally occurring ingredients; chlorine, based on common salt, and ethylene from natural gas. From manufacture to final recycling, vinyl’s carbon footprint is remarkably small. Since the primary ingredients have a low carbon content and vinyl uses 20% less energy during manufacturing, product installation and maintenance processes, the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere is minimal. At the end of it’s service life, the material is available for reuse or recycling. 80% of the rigid post-industrial vinyl is recycled.
Strassburger takes waste reduction and recycling seriously
The entire Strassburger team is dedicated to recycling waste and reducing consumption. Keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum is key to our manufacturing process. We reduce waste by ordering precise quantities of material and then optimizing all the vinyl, wood and metal materials during window and door production. Excess wood is recycled or reused for shipping, vinyl is sent to a local recycling facility and metal waste is sorted and sent to metal fabricators. Clean up of our water-based, low VOC paint is performed in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.
As part of our clean energy initiatives we plan to convert our rooftop into a solar power generation space within the next few months. Combined with the most efficient, up-to-date lighting and HVAC systems in the industry we keep energy consumption to a minimum. We’re proud to be able to continue our legacy as the Energy Plus company since 1949.
