Municipality and Hall AG awarded for soil and water protection

With "a solid reason", the European Association for Ductile Iron Pipe Systems (EADIPS®/FGR®)  is running an initiative for better soil and water protection. Buried invisibly in the ground, a pipe system is stored in many places that is 100% regionally produced and recyclable. Hall in Tirol is considered a pioneer here, especially in terms of sustainability and regionality.

With "Guter Grund", the EADIPS launched an initiative to promote the expansion of high-quality and safe ductile iron pipe systems. There is more than one good reason for this: ductile iron pipe systems guarantee the best water quality with the highest level of safety, are 100% recyclable, can be recycled and conserve resources, are produced regionally and keep our cities cool. The municipality and Hall AG received special recognition from EADIPS for their commitment to short distances and the recycling of resources.

During the ceremonial presentation of the certificates, Mayor Dr. Eva Maria Posch emphasized the importance of local solutions: "I consider the award of the "a solid reason" initiative for the municipality of Hall in Tyrol and our subsidiary, Hall AG, as praise and honor. The architectural history of our city in particular, with its old town center and our town hall, is a testament to sustainability from which we continue to benefit today. I am pleased that a good and fruitful partnership has developed between Tiroler Rohre GmbH, a leading company in our country, Hall AG and the municipality as well as the city marketing. A heartfelt thank you for this award."

Sustainability is something that Tiroler Rohre GmbH deals with on a daily basis, as owner DI Max Kloger explains, "You could see this very clearly in the example of the renewal of the drinking water pipeline in Salzbergstraße in Hall. We produced pipes on behalf of Hall AG, receiving the scrap as raw material from RAGG GmbH, our direct neighbors. In this project, the pipes were again laid by the Fröschl construction company - this is sustainability and regionalism in action. I am convinced that we are on the right track and thus also act as role models."

DI Christoph Bennerscheid, Managing Director of EADIPS (sponsor of the "a solid reason" campaign): "Whether drinking water pipes, sewers or power cables: without these important supply and disposal networks, our lives would not look as they do now and be as comfortable as they are. For this very reason, it is important that durable raw materials and safe materials are used in conjunction with sustainable concepts when building water supply and disposal systems. This, our core theme, has been lived and implemented in Hall in Tirol for years."
