Energy

The KRÜGER GROUP works according to strict standards. For the locations in Bergisch Gladbach (Krüger, K‑fee, Dr. Scheffler), Saarlouis/Saarwellingen (Ludwig Schokolade), Bexbach (Fuchs & Hoffmann), Stendal (Milchwerke Mittelelbe), Berlin and Winsen (Wilhelm Reuss) the energy management system according to ISO 50001:2011 applies.

At non-certified sites such as Dülmen (Lactoland), work is carried out in accordance with the energy standard ISO DIN EN 16247‑1:2012. Thus, annual monitoring and updating of the energy indicators also takes place here. In order to reduce energy requirements to a minimum, we operate a combined heat and power plant (CHP) at the Stendal site which provides an independent power supply.

This covers 95% of the electricity demand. The heat released from waste is also used, which increases efficiency and results in considerable savings in carbon dioxide emissions. At the Bergisch Gladbach site, we also introduced in-house power generation in 2014 with the construction of the new K‑fee plant. This is used for heating and cooling the facilities and monitoring and controlling the lighting, and for this purpose, low-energy systems and a dynamic job control system were installed. The result is a plant whose energy efficiency is 30% below the value specified by the German Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV).

The Stendal site was also designed for energy recovery. Our 14th spray dryer feeds its extracted heat as energy into the remaining production. At the sites at Bergisch Gladbach, Winsen, Saarlouis/Saarwellingen, and Stendal, power consumption was reduced by 105,000 kWh through the consistent use of LED light sources and conversion to motion detector light switches. In the field of e‑mobility, the KRÜGER GROUP has already converted parts of its vehicle fleet to electric cars, which included the installation of separate charging stations for employees and visitors.
