Why Memmert

Environmental Protection

Environmental protection and careful use of resources have been part of Memmert's DNA for decades.

We are driving the GreenLab forward with our energy-efficient and climate-friendly laboratory equipment. We were the first to use Peltier elements for the temperature control of high-performance incubators and climatic chambers. To date, no other manufacturer offers a wider range of cooled incubators and constant climate chambers with Peltier technology. The fact that the appliances are heated and cooled with one single system is unrivalled worldwide, as is our range of appliance sizes.

The European Union's new F-gas regulation aims to reduce emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases by around 90% by 2050 compared with 1990. In 2018, Memmert therefore began a gradual phase-out of synthetic refrigerants. The TTC/CTC environmental test chambers have already been converted to the more climate-friendly refrigerant R449A. We are the first manufacturers of temperature control cabinets to use climate-neutral CO2 as refrigerant in their cooling compressors for Climatic chambers ICHeco and Compressor-cooled incubators ICPeco yet.

What do we do for the environment?

  • Development of resource-saving, energy-efficient products
  • The use of recyclable stainless steel
  • As little use as possible of composite materials
  • Waste separation and recycling (as far as possible) for all production waste and residues
  • The use of materials that are as environmentally-friendly as possible in production
  • Fleet with e-cars
  • 9000 m2 photovoltaic system on the roof of the production plant
