How Your Bathroom Can Help You Tackle The Climate Crisis

When it comes to tackling climate change, you don’t tend to think of your toilet as being in the front line of the battle. But one company is looking to transform the way your bathroom furniture, or sanitaryware, is made, and save hundreds of thousands of tons of CO2 emissions in the process.

You probably don’t give much thought to your toilet and sink or how they are made, let alone the environmental impact of that process. But they are ceramics, fired in a kiln at 1,250C, and in virtually every factory around the world, the heat for the kiln is produced by fossil fuels, mostly gas.

Roca Group, one of the world’s biggest producers of bathroom furnishings, has taken the first step to electrifying the production of sanitaryware – and potentially all types of ceramics – with the launch of the industry’s first electric tunnel kiln in its factory in the picturesque lakeside town of Gmunden, Austria. The facility makes products under Roca’s Laufen brand but also acts as the company’s innovation center. “It’s like a laboratory, but on an industrial scale,” says CEO Albert Magrans.

The Gmunden kiln, which is powered by renewable electricity from solar panels on and around the factory, is avoiding the emission of 5,000 tons of CO2 a year. In time, Roca plans to replace the gas kilns at all its 79 factories around the world with electric alternatives, which could cut its emissions by hundreds of thousands of tons – it is hard to give an exact figure because every kiln, and conditions at every factory, are different.

And how much extra will these cost? Will they be reliable and long lasting? If they want to make these, feel free. Don’t try and force consumers to get them. And please stop involving your cult in every decision.

    Be a good little greenie and ignore the coal fired plants that will have to be built to produce enough electricity.

      If only there were other ways to generate electricity besides burning coal…

      • Brother John says:

        Yeah, but the goddamn tree huggers keep shutting down the nuke plants. And anyway, it doesn’t matter because the Chicoms are building coal plants faster than we do and you won’t talk them into sabotaging their economy the way we’re doing ours.

    Wow, “save hundreds of thousands of tons of CO2 emissions”, gee willikers, that’s a lot, right?

    Uh, nope.

    Disregarding the hundreds of thousands of tons of CO2 emissions required to produce, transport and erect the solar panels and battery arrays needed, since toilet manufacturing kilns are gigantic and a solar farm many times the size of the current facilities would be required to power them, means this virtue signaling “green” way to fire ceramics of any kind is, as usual with this sort of thing, a giant boondoggle. One that will only succeed in making your new potty cost at least twice as much, depending on real estate values where the factories are located, and pissing off every land use nazi from here to India.

    Add to that, consider that 500,000 tons of CO2 is roughly 0.0000038% of the current manmade portion of the total CO2 in the atmosphere, which is about 6% of the total CO2 emissions since 1750, the start of the mean old, bad, industrial revolution. The total CO2 itself is only 0.04% of the five and a half quadrillion tons of earth’s atmosphere.

    The term “drop in the bucket” doesn’t even begin to cover it. And for what?

    Want to get a good idea of the proportions they’re crowing about here? Take a piece of 8-1/2 x 11 copier paper, that represents the whole of earth’s atmosphere. Now draw a circle a little smaller that 1/4″ in diameter. That represents all the CO2 in the atmosphere. Now take a push pin and poke 2 holes inside that circle. Those 2 holes represent all of the manmade portion of CO2 since 1750. Even if you took a really sharp pencil and made a single dot, that would be way more that 500,000 tons. you couldn’t make a dot small enough to represent 500,000 tons.

    But hey, yippee for solar powered toilet kilns! Savin’ the whales!

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Yes, and botulinum toxin is lethal at 0.000001 ppm! Take a sheet of paper and stare at it. You cannot see the hole that represents a lethal 70 ng dose.

      The average CO2 concentration during the interglacial periods of the past 800,000 was about 260 ppm. The current CO2 concentration is 420 ppm and on the rise. Infrared wavelengths interact with CO2 molecules causing warming.

      Human activities release some 36 billion tons of CO2 each year.

      Persons such as Teach whine that those that understand global warming don’t do enough, and whines when they do something. Whining seems to be the theme song of the New Angry Conservatives.

    And what, exactly, is their plan for those days/times when storms (summer or winter, take your pick) slam into the mountains and stop, dumping nearly all of their precipitation for a period of hours or days?

  5. James Lewis says:

    Chicken Little Man

    ….. 420 ppm and on the rise…..

    And you know how much it will be?????
