GREEN HOUSE GAS EMISSIONS:
Greenhouse gas effects are aggravated by the burning of fossil fuels to generate heat.
Since 1985, our supplier has been investing in reducing consumption of heat in the processes and recovered thermal energy, thus reducing the burning of natural gas and therefore the emission of CO2.
-50% CO2 EMISSIONS
-90 NOX EMISSIONS
-100% SO2 EMISSIONS
- Reducing process time
- Eliminating waste
- Maximizing use per kw/h/kilo
- Using frequency inverter technology
- Using natural gas as the energy matrix.
- Heat recovery systems.
- Reducing process times.
- Thermal insulation.
- Reducing waste
- 50% in fuel burn, proportionally reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The water used in our industrial process is captured with high pollution levels, and it undergoes rigorous purification treatments.
After treated and purified, it is used in textile processing (steam generation, preparation, dyeing, finishing, and other complementary uses).
The water cycle is finished with the treatment of the effluent, and the water is returned to the collection system according to the parameters set up in the legislation in force.
- Effective management of resources and inputs in the production chain;
