Ensuring a sustainable future with an eco-friendly product portfolio
Copper is essential to modern life and a key component of green technologies. Copper is 100 percent recyclable and retains its quality (both chemical and physical properties) when recycled.
We invest our deep understanding and long standing expertise on materials to create alloys that exactly meet the new needs of components for sustainable technologies and contain less or no lead. Also we focus on developing products enabling eco-friendly technologies like e-mobility, heat recovery, reducing CO2 footprint and refrigerant load or a more sustainable fish-farming. And finally, we concentrate our efforts on recycling of copper – and packing materials.

Did you know that in Central Europe about two thirds of hot water consumption is for showering? It takes approx. 10 kWh to heat 200 litres of water from 10 to 55 °C, with the heat energy of the discharged water being lost down the drain! In shower water heat recovery, heat is extracted from discharged waste shower water and used for heating the incoming cold water.
Around ten percent of the global consumption of electricity is currently spent on air conditioning - by 2050 a threefold increase is expected. Refrigerants are used that partly contribute to the greenhouse effect. Consequently, the EU and other countries are gradually refraining from using these refrigerants.Alternative refrigerants place new demands on the design of refrigeration and air conditioning systems. With the "phase down" of traditional refrigerants and the emergence of new substitutes, the EU F-Gas Regulation brings a considerable increase in costs. Wieland offers a wide range of answers to this challenge for its customers.
