The Jäger Group is not only committed to continuously improving its energy performance, but is also committed to minimizing negative environmental impacts. The regular review of activities and processes for energy waste and environmental impact plays a key role in this. Our latest master’s thesis examined the environmental assessment of round baler belts at our subsidiary Artemis under the name “Grizzly Splice”.
The CO2 equivalents of two products were determined and compared in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14067. Round baler belts are used in agricultural machinery (including Krone, Kuhn and Claas) to compress hay and straw into bales. Our latest product, the “Grizzly Splice”, uses a patented method in which the vulcanized material is mechanically joined by sewing — a sustainable advance.
Today, our Master’s student presented the results in her final colloquium. The thesis analyzed the impact of the switch from endless splicing to sewing in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. The main results are:
The thesis received the top grade of 1.0. We would like to congratulate our Master’s student and wish her every success in her future endeavors. A big thank you also goes to the supervisors of the thesis, Nick and Rainer at Artemis.
