The factory premises, which are currently being built in Ruše (SI), are already serving as a model for green production throughout Slovenia. The future Geberit production site – located only a few kilometers from the current plant – is a perfect example of how factory premises can be planned and realized in an ecologically and economically sustainable manner.
One of the site’s special features is its sophisticated energy concept. Among other aspects, this includes the use of all waste heat from industrial processes as well as the complete absence of fossil fuels. The available ground water is used for cooling, while rainwater is collected and used both as extinguishing water and for watering the surrounding area.
An interdisciplinary Geberit team critically examined the entire production process and considered the special characteristics of the landscape when designing the new building. This resulted in the development of a unique concept that can be expanded step by step as required. The building itself features state-of-the-art design, sophisticated processes, environmentally friendly materials and an exceptional energy concept.
