ROSA FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

We have been designing and manufacturing outdoor lighting for 30 years. We specialize in the production of aluminum columns and LED luminaires, as well as integrated lighting systems. Our products can be used in both public and private spaces.

We are aware of the fact that our business decisions have impact on our environment. Therefore, the principles of sustainable development have been an important element of our strategy for many years. We monitor all processes in our company to eliminate activities that have a negative impact on the natural environment at every stage of production. We are working on introducing innovative solutions that not only meet the needs of our customers, but can also be used by them without fear of climate pollution.

We feel responsible for the environment in which we live. We are a Polish family business and we want our employees’ children to enjoy the good of a clean natural environment. Our goal is to pursue a circular production model. We want to provide the market with durable and innovative products that will ensure savings and a better quality of life.

In addition to standard solutions commonly used in production plants, such as a waste water neutralizer, air purification system, devices reducing energy and water consumption, ROSA has implemented investments that significantly reduce the negative impact on the climate.

Combined heat and power (CHP) cogeneration unit – used in the production of electricity which is generated, among others in three cogeneration unit powered by natural gas, combustion of which is not harmful to the environment. We use waste heat from cogeneration in the anodizing process, or, depending on current needs, to heat rooms and prepare domestic hot water and in the summer season, in the trigeneration process, cold is generated from waste heat, which allows to lower the temperature in production halls without the need to use destructive refrigerants ozone layer, as it is the case with classic air conditioners. This solution allows for high energy savings and a significant reduction in the emission of pollutants into the atmosphere.

Photovoltaic panels mounted on the roof of our plant, which allow us to reduce energy consumption from the traditional grid.

Heat pumps , thanks to which the heat recovered from the production line is used to heat water and in winter also heat rooms.

It is no coincidence that the main material we use to manufacture our products is aluminum - a leader among eco-materials

Aluminum is the third element found in nature, after oxygen and silicon. Bauxite ores are used for its production. The excellent properties of aluminum: low weight, plastic properties and high corrosion resistance make it a universal material used in many branches of the economy. Thanks to these advantages, aluminum is also considered the most ecological construction material:

•  lightness of aluminum, i.e. the specific weight of aluminum is approximately 3 times lower than the specific weight of steel, which makes it possible to design structures that are much lighter than steel structures. This has a direct impact on economical transport and assembly, which translates into a reduction in fuel consumption and a reduction in CO2 emissions.

•  corrosion resistance, obtained through the anodizing process, which is creating a very highly resistant to weather conditions oxide coating on the aluminum surface. According to the classification of the corrosivity category according to EN ISO 12944-1, ROSA anodized columns show high resistance even in category C4, which has been confirmed by tests in a salt spray chamber, in accordance with PN-EN ISO 9227. The applied solution ensures long-term and trouble-free service life of the columns in most weather conditions for up to 50 years. In addition, anodic coatings, compared to raw aluminum, are characterized by much greater resistance to scratches and most of the factors causing damage to unprotected aluminum, such as salt, precipitation (acid rain), pollution from means of transport or industry (dust, oil, etc.).

• thanks to the anodizing process, the products can be directly recycled, without the need to use high-emission technologies, because the renewal of the anodic coating itself is cheap and more environmentally friendly compared to other technologies, such as powder coating. In the case of painted coatings, it is necessary to clean the material in advance, which is an additional burden on the environment (emission of sewage, waste, hazardous gases and dust). Processing aluminum does not decrease its parameters and quality, and material losses during recycling amount to about few percent.
