BYK Additives & Instruments, a division of ALTANA AG, recently announced its most recent laboratory wing is reportedly the first lab building in Germany to receive Platinum status, the highest distinction that the U.S. Green Building Council awards as part of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. BYK Additives & Instruments invested in geothermal energy, heat pumps and heat recovery systems to reduce primary energy consumption by over 30%. Some 8,000 sq m of laboratory space was created using building materials either derived from renewable materials or that can be recycled. Even the ventilation system for the 130 work stations meets the energy standards.

“Thanks also to the early enlistment of the LEED certification auditor from Jones Lang LaSalle, the project team was professionally and effectively supported throughout the entire planning and implementation process,” said Gerald Kirchner, project manager.
