“Duravit will keep on investing in modern technologies to provide the structural framework for sustainability efforts,” remarks Asutosh Shah, Managing Director, Duravit India
The sanitary industry has been making a decisive contribution in terms of global sustainability targets for many years, and it’s the sum of various actions that makes the difference. In a conversation with ACE Update, Asutosh Shah shares how Duravit is contributing to a responsible future.
Role in green buildingsIn recent years, there has been a great change in the way people use water and energy. That paves the way to green building. Duravit responds to this with innovative technology. Already for decades, the company’s history has been shaped by the awareness for sustainable values and actions. The responsible use of resources has become an essential part of every new development. This continues to give rise to new product ideas that contribute to a responsible future.
Essential products for green buildingsThe Duravit Rimless technology offers an efficient solution wherever optimum hygiene is required. Its innovative and effective flushing technology delivers optimum flushing results with small water volumes as 4.5 litres. And thanks to the open rim less cleanser is needed.
The McDry urinal and the Architec Dry urinal even operate without any water. A purely plant-based and thus biodegradable sealing liquid effectively prevents unpleasant odours. The siphon, like the urinal itself, is made from robust, durable sanitary ceramic.
Trends and opportunitiesDuravit meets all international standards in terms of quality (ISO 9001), environment (ISO 14001) and energy (ISO 50001). By meeting these standards, Duravit paves the way for other suppliers to follow this example.
In general, the sanitary industry has been making a decisive contribution in terms of global sustainability targets for many years.
The upcoming challenge will be to develop innovative solutions and to optimise existing technologies that are already on a very high level. That includes water-saving as well as energy-saving and eco-friendly production processes. It’s the sum of various actions that makes the difference, and that’s why Duravit will keep on investing in modern technologies to provide the structural framework for sustainability efforts.
