Our Environment



Plan Optik AG's environmental management fulfills the exacting requirements of the ISO 14001 standard. This is the result of an extensive certification process. From the receipt of the goods through the production to storage and shipping, Plan Optik AG ensures that the environmental impact is kept to a minimum.

That means: Plan Optik has introduced clearly defined procedures in order to identify all environmental aspects within the determined field of application of the environmental management system, and then to monitor and influence it. This also applies of course to future developments and production processes. The international standard ISO 14001 is the most important guideline worldwide for what should be achieved by environmental management within a company. Environmental management in accordance with ISO 14001 also covers the requirements of the European Environmental Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS).

Within the framework of its responsibility for the environment, for example, Plan Optik has installed an extensive water treatment system. Not only the process water from the grinding and polishing sections but also the cooling water needed for cutting and micro structuring is fully treated.

Plan Optik has arranged with a number of its customers for the delivery of goods using returnable packaging. In this procedure not only the direct protective packaging for the wafers but also the outer packaging of the individual stacks of wafers are both used several times.
