Sustainability

Sustainability is a core principle.

Adapa is built on the foundation of reusability, and we will continue to strive to incorporate this belief into everything that we do.

The way we design solutions, manufacture machinery and service our customers are based on the principles that we:

  • innovate to make the manufacture of complex curved surfaces sustainable
  • plan to secure transport and production methods with the lowest environmental impact
  • choose the materials and parts that are easiest to reuse or recycle
  • guarantee the option to return machinery, parts and materials to our production in Aalborg

These principles influence the way we think and act and can as an example be recognized in the fact that, we use materials like aluminum because it is durable and easy for us to reuse and do not paint our machinery because it is easier to recycle materials without paint.

Carbon Impact

Carbon impact reduction is a contribution.

One of the biggest environmental pollutants is polystyrene, as it contains toxic substances such as styrene and benzene.

And yet, it continues to be used as the primary component to make moulds in the manufacturing and construction sectors.

The total number of Adaptive Moulds in use globally as of today, is equivalent to 1,500 tons worth of polystyrene moulds. From a sustainability perspective, this means that our moulds help reduce at least 13,000 tons of CO2 from being emitted out into the world, annually.

To put that in perspective, 13,000 tons of CO2 roughly translates to:

  • 30,000 barrels of oil
  • 51 million kms driven by an average passenger vehicle
  • 800 flights (per passenger) from Melbourne to London

Adapa is committed to contributing in whatever way we can, to reduce the impact that greenhouse gas emissions have on our planet. We urge our industry partners to contribute as well, by looking at non-polluting, environment-friendly methods of production for their future projects.

We endorse the contribution of our customers that are using Adapa’s Adaptive Moulds:

Reduction of 13,000 tons of CO2 per year
