INTERNORM, founded by Franz Grimme in 1987, has taken a major step towards a self-sufficient power supply with the installation of a 1,000 kW/p photovoltaic system. Over 2,400 solar modules have been installed on a hall area of 15,000 square metres. "The installation went smoothly and commissioning will take place soon," reports Technical Manager Richard Tepe. "We can cover up to 20% of our electricity requirements and will continue to work on alternative energy concepts," explain Managing Directors Philipp Grimme and Bernard Tepe. A total of 800,000 euros has been invested. Next year, another photovoltaic system with 350 kW/p will be installed on a new hall building.

INTERNORM was also able to develop an innovative recycling process for screen stars made from the highly elastic plastic polyurethane. With this concept, the company plans to recycle up to 80% of the original material. INTERNORM has thus created a unique selling point in the industry and is researching further innovative solutions via its in-house laboratory in order to work in the most resource-efficient way possible.
