More than 50 years of dedicated work to reduce our environmental impact means that ABENA's Danish production facility today is 100% covered by wind energy. In this way, we are able to give our products a clean beginning of their lifecycle.
A responsible Danish factory
It is at our production site in Aabenraa, Denmark, that 4 million incontinence products and baby diapers are produced daily.
Running a responsible factory means that we constantly aim to minimize our environmental footprint and reduce our CO2 emissions. Our long-term work to optimize our production facilities according to internationally acknowledged standards for environmental management means that:
*CO2 emissions cover electricity, gas and oil and are calculated based on Energinet's and the Danish Energy Agency's standard factors. Calculations of kWh electricity to kg CO2 are based on Energinet's Environmental Declaration. Calculations from l oil and kg gas to kg CO2 are based on the Danish Energy Agency's standards for calorific values and emission factors.
Finess Hygiene has been a part of the Abena group since 1999. The Swedish subsidiary is in charge of our own production of disposable Abri-Bed protective sheets that are used for e.g. examination beds and tables, operating tables, ambulances and similar.
Finess Hygiene also manufactures Abena’s disposable bibs for adults that both with and without a pocket. The bibs are designed to provide hygienic protection and absorption in connection with meals.
In addition, Finess Hygiene produces disposable airlaid wipes and disposable tissue wipes for patient care, washing and drying.
Our subsidiary in France became a part of Abena in 1992, but has been producing absorbent underpads for the Abena Group since 1984.
Abena-Frantex is in charge of our own production of Abri-Soft underpads with a PE backsheet, fluff, super absorber (SAP) and a non-woven surface.
The Abri-Soft underpads are used as bed protection against incontinence in nursing homes and hospitals and as underlay on examination tables and chairs etc. Like our own production in Denmark, our subsidiaries only use the best, high quality raw materials for the manufacturing of Abena products.
Furthermore, both Finess Hygiene and Abena-Frantex are equipped with high-tech, state-of-the-art production technologies that ensure that all products manufactured by Abena are of same high quality!
