Additionally, the 2022 edition features an entirely new product category titled ‘norelem controls’, which lists electromechanical standard components for control and regulation.

This is the second edition of THE BIG GREEN BOOK to be split into two volumes. norelem has ensured that the printing process of the 2022 edition is more sustainable, by using an innovative method that combines heat and power technology during printing to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 52%. As a result, the 2022 edition is the greenest yet. The two volumes contain over 2,700 pages between them, listing data, components, and reference guides. 

Marcus Schneck, CEO of norelem, said: “Design engineers across the globe regard THE BIG GREEN BOOK as an invaluable reference guide. Our strapline is ‘Find it. Get it. Go’ and a key part of this is our product catalogue, which makes it easier for engineers to quickly identify the products they need. We know that this year’s edition of THE BIG GREEN BOOK is our most detailed version yet and we are confident it will help our customers with their everyday challenges.”
