The European manufacturing facility was built from the ground up with sustainability in mind, and since opening the building has had heating isolation increased, installation of light sensor systems completed, and air compressor waste heat utilization optimized . The second phase of solar panel installation is now underway and will be able to run more operations with less impact on the environment in the future.
Onsite, customers testing the POC at the Innovation Center will also be able to view real-time energy and water consumption data at the facility on the newly unveiled Environmental, Social and Governance wall (pictured below).
