BYK: Platinum Status from the U.S. Green Building Council

The most recent laboratory wing of BYK Additives & Instruments, Wesel, Germany, a division of Altana AG, has been the first lab building in Germany to receive the highest distinction that the U.S. Green Building Council awards as part of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.

LEED defines a series of standards for environmentally friendly, resource-efficient and sustainable construction. Hence special importance was placed at the planning stage on an efficient use of energy. BYK invested in geothermal energy, heat pumps and heat recovery systems in order to reduce primary energy consumption by over 30 %. 8,000 square meters of laboratory space were created using building materials that either come from renewable materials or can be easily recycled. Even the ventilation system for the 130 work stations meets the strict energy standards.
