As a production company located in the vicinity of a residential area, AW is conscious of the impact it has on its surroundings. There are ongoing consultations both with people living in the neighbourhood and with the local authorities, and they constantly look for the best ways of limiting possible nuisance to the surrounding area.
For example, sound levels in the neighbourhood of the company are measured regularly to check the performance of the sound-insulation installations. Recently AW also brought a biofilter into use which purifies the air. It purifies the air emitted by the latexing unit in the production of the back of the carpet. The biofilter removes over 80% of the smell from the air treated.
