STÖBER Antriebstechnik GmbH + Co. KG takes on a leading role in the CO2-neutral use of eco-gas. The company has a balanced carbon footprint thanks to the supply from SWP.
In addition to green electricity, STOBER has also been using climate-neutral eco-gas from SWP as the energy resource in its regional operational facilities since the beginning of this year. The globally active company, headquartered in Pforzheim, was recently awarded an eco-gas certificate for this measure.
STOBER’s CEO Patrick Stöber was visibly proud when he spoke about the fundamental decision to use eco-gas as a form of energy. “Our company stands for high quality in all areas. We place the greatest importance on outstanding products, satisfied employees and energy use that conserves resources as much as possible.” Stöber asserts that this award as well as the others that the company has received in recent years are not just public advertising for the company, however. “They also lead to greater motivation among the staff because the employees each have reason to be proud of their company.”
This special certificate was presented by the CEO of Stadtwerke Pforzheim, Herbert Marquard, himself “as a matter of course.” Marquard emphasized, “We are happy that STOBER is the first company in our region to receive this certificate for its commitment. We are also very proud to have such a loyal customer and reliable partner at our side.”
How is the certification carried out?
Climate-neutral eco-gas – how does that work?
In collaboration with sustainability agency KlimaInvest Green Concepts from Hamburg, CO2 emissions produced by heating systems and production processes during natural gas production are calculated. These CO2 emissions are effectively offset for the environment by investing in certified climate protection projects. As a result, the eco-gas used is 100% climate-neutral.
How is CO2 neutralization guaranteed?
By purchasing climate-neutral eco-gas, the purchaser makes a contribution to climate protection. This supports climate protection projects that satisfy the highest international standards. Compliance with these standards and logging of CO2 emissions from the supplied quantities of eco-gas are annually checked and certified by climate protection partner KlimaInvest Green Concepts and additional, independent testers such as TÜV Nord.
Which quality criteria satisfy the supported climate protection projects?
Sustainability agency KlimaInvest Green Concepts collaborates with independent testing organizations such as TÜV to check and certify that the supported projects are sustainable and ecologically sensible. The projects correspond to one of the world’s most demanding standards, the Verified Carbon Standard (www.v-c-s.org), which follows the criteria catalog of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change). Furthermore, this project standard guarantees that no climate protection projects are supported that were implemented without certified contribution to climate protection. This additional requirement is documented and certified for every climate protection project that KlimaInvest supports.

I-MAK renew its technological partnerships for 2020
After a busy year, rich of new projects, technological partnerships, workshops and developments, I-MAK Reduktor is proud to sign and renew its research partnership in collaboration with the MARMARA university.
This new protocol will tight up USIMP, MITTO and MURGEMER with I-MAK Reduktor. This strategical partnership will lead to research, development, prototyping and testing of new products. Hosted by TEKNOPARK Istanbul and supported by ISTKA (Istanbul development agency ), MURGEMER is the product development and research center of MARMARA university.
The globalization and the current crisis hitting our industry placed all of us in a complex position and in front of a strategical need for change. It is crucial for us, but also for Turkey to continue our way toward more technological products. By increasing the added value of our products and solutions we are shifting toward a new positioning on the global market. I-MAK is definitively on this way, progressively reaching new quality level for its products and solutions but also improving the image of Turkish machinery around the world.
With this new partnership I-MAK is reinforcing its current range of products by operating some new change and development on their historical line of products. But this new contract for the future is also aiming to develop new line of products and solutions. We are planning to add 6 new sizes of gearboxes in 2020 and hundreds of new combination and options. These new additions mainly concern our new generation of monobloc series for industrial applications. With this new line our product range will now reach more than 1.200.000 products combinations.
A core part of this strategy is also based on the integration of young engineers and students to I-MAK activities. With more than 30 factory tours for students in 2019 and several technical seminars in Turkish universities, I-MAK is strongly affirming its trust in the future of the Turkish Industrial world and future talents. As the previous years, I-MAK also extended its internship program to several different countries, with more than 14 students from 8 countries attending the program in 2019, the 2020 is already having a great success worldwide! Students from mechanical, electrical, mechatronics and industrial engineering will be working in various different sectors starting from January 2020.
In parallel of this strategy I-MAK also opened a new branch in the USA. Started in 2017 the strategy for the US is gaining shape as IMAK will also continue to add new products and solutions for that specific market. In the same time the company added new NEMA configurations to the existing range of product. Strategically located in Houston, Texas, our new branch office is placing I-MAK in the hearth of the US market and close to some of the most performant research center in the world. This location is adding a new and challenging dynamic to I-MAK and a promising potential for growth!
We are looking forward for a new year of development and progress!
