GALAB Laboratories, a Green Company

Project of the Year 2019

Winning the “Project of the Year 2019” award from Renewable Energies Hamburg (EEHH) for its ice storage project, which resulted in a saving of more than 20,562 kilograms of CO2, equivalent to planting 613,74 trees, and providing charging stations for its employees’ e-cars at the company building are just some of the green results GALAB Laboratories has achieved so far as part of its sustainability programs. Below you will find an overview of our green projects at GALAB Laboratories.

GALAB Ice Storage Project

Our GALAB ice storage project is used for temperature control for both heating and cooling of the company building. Compared to conventionally air-conditioned buildings, this special concept reduces emissions by up to 70 percent and is thus a significant contribution to climate friendliness in the industrial sector.“I think our model shows that it pays to take things into your own hands and not wait for others,” says GALAB Managing Director Dr. Eckard Jantzen, who pushed the ice storage project during the construction of the new company headquarters. “When your instincts tell you what to do, you should follow them. I wish we could get people to do the same. After all, it’s about our future. ” The industrial-scale ice storage facility for heating and cooling is the largest of its kind in the whole of Europe and has already won several awards, including the City of Hamburg’s Energy Efficiency Award in 2016.

GALAB Green Electricity

Also, on 1st of November 2020, GALAB is completely using green electricity, which is obtained from the regional provider Hamburg Energie.Added to this is the photovoltaic system on the roof of the outdoor storage facility, which has produced 52.46 MWh of green electricity since its launch on April 8, 2020. This corresponds to 613.74 planted trees or a CO2 saving of more than 20,562 kilograms.  The electricity it generates powers the two e-car charging stations that have been installed on the company’s premises since July 2020. These charging stations simultaneously power GALAB’s own electric vehicle followed by the employees’ private e-cars.
