Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie announces new eco-friendly glass coating

The Stölzle Glass Group perfumes and cosmetics division will showcase a new eco-friendly decoration at the next PCD tradeshow in Paris. An opportunity to take stock of the company’s investments in sustainability.

“It is our duty to take responsibility for the environmental impact that will affect future generations,” explains Étienne Gruyez, managing director of Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie.

“It is our duty to take responsibility for the environmental impact that will affect future generations,” explains Étienne Gruyez, managing director of Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie.

On the occasion of the ADF-PCD tradeshow, to be held in Paris on January 31st and February 1st, 2018, the Perfumery and Cosmetics Business Unit of the Stölzle Glass Group will present “Quali Glass Coat”, a new decoration process conceived within its decoration pole, Stölzle Masnières Decoration.

This new technique allows us to achieve an array of new decorative effects with low environmental impact (compared with conventional lacquering) and greater mechanical resistance,” announces the company in a release.

Sustainability commitments

The investments made by Stölzle Glass Group at the Masnières facility include an important environmental component, consistent with the group’s strategy.

It is our duty to take responsibility for the environmental impact that will affect future generations,” explains Étienne Gruyez, managing director of Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie.

Thus, since 2017, the electric power consumed by the Manières glass unit is entirely comes exclusively from French 100% renewable resources. An important step forward, considering that electricity represents 37% of the impact of glass production, which represents itself 70% of the impact of the whole Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie impact.

Similarly, the impact of the extraction and transport of the materials used in glass production is kept low - 30% of the company’s environmental impact, on average - thanks to the proximity of the raw material. Actually, sand is extracted 200 km from the factory and transported by boat.

Eventually, in 2017, Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie has decreased its environmental impact by 17%.

Over the last few years, the Stölzle Glass Group has been growing steadily. Linked with this growth and expansion of production capacity, Stölzle has invested heavily in the field of environmental protection. Our medium-term targets for 2020 and beyond is to continue to pursue this strategy,” adds Johannes Schick, CEO of Stölzle Glass Group.

Among the group’s main targets: the qualification for ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification, and the implementation of heat recovery systems in each factory to reduce the carbon footprint while improving energy and resource efficiency.
