Stoll uses Energyscouts to maintain sustainability
Mar '15
H Stoll GmbH & Co, KG, the flat knitting equipment manufacturer from Reutlingen, Germany, is using “Energyscouts” to maintain the sustainability of the factory environment in knitting manufacturing, in association with the “Blue Competence” sustainability initiative of the machinery, plan engineering and construction association (VDMA/Verband Deutscher Maschinen-und Anlagenbau).

The management of Stoll, which is a proud member of VDMA since 2012, focuses on the economical and environmental benefits of maximising the sustainable use of all resources.

In cooperation with the training manager, Dirk Veith, Stoll’s Energyscouts are in the second year of apprenticeship and are responsible for helping Stoll to comply with all internal standards as well as all “Blue Competence” regulations.

Working together, this team is expected to tour the facilities to discover and correct any issues with energy or materials. The current project of the Energyscouts is to check for leaks in the compressed air equipment. Every leak results in extra expenses due to loss of energy and reduced equipment efficiency. If the Energyscouts find a problem, they report it to Veith and they have a collective discussion on how to best correct the problem, Stoll said in a statement.

The Stoll Energyscouts have the advantage of getting hands-on real-world experience with sustainability issues and to learn responsible material and energy handling in Stoll’s facilities. This knowledge can then be used to develop and implement solutions to protect the environment. (GK)
