Moll Marzipan GmbH

More energy efficiency through networks

The Moll Marzipan Berlin factory site identified significant savings measures through network participation with initial energy consulting, energy concept and accompanying of project implementation. The implementation of the energy concept took place in particular in the areas of insulation, cooling and regulation.

The Challenge

With over 80 employees, Moll Marzipan GmbH produces marzipan paste and persipan paste as well as almond preparations. The company has been ISO 50001 certified since 2015 and is continuously looking for new possibilities to optimize energy performance.

Energy efficiency pays off for us. The exchange with like-minded companies and our competent partner ÖKOTEC in the network has helped us achieve substantial improvements.
