Printing media manufacturer ORAFOL is making modifications to its main production site in Oranienburg, Germany, to run on liquefied natural gas (LNG). Current energy is supplied in natural gas, piped in, and supply of this has been restricted as a result of the current Ukraine conflict and other policy decisions. This conversion process, which will serve to safeguard the company’s production processes, will be carried out in two phases. An energy efficiency programme to unlock potential energy savings is to be implemented with immediate effect at Oranienburg. An uninterrupted supply of energy is a must, says ORAFOL.
In a statement from the company, the International ORAFOL Group is expanding its ongoing investment programme and converting its main production site in Oranienburg to run on liquefied natural gas. The company, which employs 1,100 staff, produces high performance self-adhesive film for industry and trade at its headquarters in Oranienburg. The company’s products are used, among other things, on traffic signs, in traffic safety systems, in the area of workplace health and safety and by the graphics industry all over the world.
