|The Glashütte Lamberts, Waldsassen, Germany|
Bendheim is a third-generation family owned company with a strong commitment to eco-friendly glass production. We invest in advanced green manufacturing technologies and carefully select environmentally conscious business partners.
Now in its third generation, the Glashütte Lamberts is a family owned company with genuine commitment to sustainable products. Lamberts has been practicing their own strict environmental policies since the 1970's, years before Germany established industry-wide regulations for environmental protection. It is one of the first glass factories to reduce air pollution with the installation of sophisticated air filtration equipment. Lamberts' flue-gas filters capture and eliminate heavy metal emissions produced during the glass melting process. The main raw materials (sand, soda, and limestone) are sourced from regional companies to minimize long transport distances and to reduce the final product's carbon footprint. Their most recent efforts improved the firing technology of the furnaces to further increase efficiency and conserve energy.
Lamberts continues its commitment to sustainable development with the active research and implementation of new environmentally sensitive processes and technologies. Future developments include increased conservation of fresh water through water recirculation and treatment within the plant, as well as a rooftop array of photovoltaic cells to supplement the factory's electrical requirements.
The Bendheim and Glashütte Lamberts partnership is much more than glass and product innovation. It is a partnership dedicated to environmentally sensitive, eco-friendly products.
