Herrmann Ultraschall renews its commitment to environmental protection
Donating an additional 10,000 euros for the protection of oceans: After 2022, Herrmann Ultraschall is once again supporting the non-profit organization The Ocean Cleanup, which frees the oceans from plastic waste.
"With our donation as part of Herrmann Cares, we traditionally support organizations that align with our values," says CEO Thomas Herrmann, explaining the background to the donation. "Just like us, The Ocean Cleanup stands for the sustainable use of plastic. With our safe ultrasonic welding technology, we can prevent the generation of waste and at the same time help to remove existing plastic waste from the environment with our donation.”
With the support of companies such as Herrmann Ultraschall, The Ocean Cleanup plans to remove around 90 percent of plastic waste from the oceans by 2040. The organization utilizes specially designed collection systems in rivers to prevent additional plastic parts from entering the oceans and harming ecosystems. Additionally, they extract plastic pieces from substantial accumulations, such as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, to accomplish this goal. The collected plastic is recycled and used for the manufacture of new products.
