ELECTRICITY, NOT GAS: A REVOLUTION FOR THE SANITARYWARE INDUSTRY
Roca Group and LAUFEN have launched the world’s first electric CO2-free tunnel kiln at an Austrian location in Gmunden.
The new technology is a game changer because with it – at the heart of Europe – ceramic production becomes climate-neutral. LAUFEN developed the kiln from the ground up with the German kiln construction specialist Keramischer Ofenbau. The Roca Group – the world’s largest sanitary supplier and LAUFEN’s parent company – launched the kiln as a pilot project with an impact on the entire industry.
