ACTIVELY REDUCING NOISE EMISSIONS
Work processes in the manufacturing industry are marked by a high percentage of mechanical production processes that are inevitably coupled with noise emissions. The companies located in the Chemical Industrial Park Knapsack endeavor to keep the adverse effects on the neighboring community, the environment and employees to a minimum.
Noise assessments carried out by external measuring institutes and our own department form the basis for noise reduction concepts during the planning phase for plants. This ensures that noise limits both in the chemical park and in the surrounding area are reliably observed. Appropriate noise reduction measures are already taken during the construction or modification of the plants. These include the use of noise insulation and the shielding of construction sites, both of which help to keep noise levels to a minimum.
Noise pollution from the chemical industrial park is monitored at six measuring points in the surrounding neighborhood. As the effects of noise can fluctuate considerably at a given location depending on the number and type of noise sources involved as well as the weather conditions, measurements are taken over longer periods by a mobile measurement station.
The effects of noise are continually measured at the measuring points on up to 30 days a year and the results subsequently analyzed and evaluated.
