EBA is the first manufacturer of shredding machines to be awarded the “Blue Angel“ for the highly efficient use of energy for their range of shredders from the EBA 1324 up to the EBA 5141. It is the energy saving function, “Zero Energy Consumption”, of these shredders that ensures automatic and complete power cut-off after 30 minutes in stand-by mode. In addition, all of these IDEAL shredders come with environmental friendly shred bins made of solid synthetic material, dispensing with one-use plastic bags. Efficient drive systems ensure high sheet capacity, and quietly running motors mean low operational sound levels. The superior quality of the all-steel cutting shafts, which are made of specially hardened steel, is endorsed by the Lifetime Warranty.
About Blue Angel
The Blue Angel is the first and oldest environment-related label for products and services in the world. It was created in 1978 and considers itself as a market-conform instrument of environmental policy designed to distinguish the positive environmental features of products and services on a voluntary basis.
The Blue Angel promotes the concerns of both environmental protection and consumer protection. An important criterion for awarding the Blue Angel to products or services is considerably lower energy consumption in comparison to conventional products.
Additionally, products and services awarded the Blue Angel must also meet high standards of environmental and health protection as well as usability. Each product is evaluated on the basis of criteria such as the efficient use of raw materials in manufacture or use, a long product life and sustainable disposal, and as little toxic contamination and electromagnetic radiation as possible.
In other words, products branded with the Blue Angel logo:
have less negative impact on the environment
help to conserve resources during production
require less resources in use and disposal
do not contain substances harmful to health or the environment
nevertheless perform their functions (serviceability) on a high quality level
