At Venchi, we take the utmost care for the environment. In particular, we would like you to know that:
- in compliance with ecological/environmental regulations: our industrial activity does not generate polluting and hazardous waste and our production cycles do not emit substances harmful to the environment into the atmosphere;
- water resource management is intended to save money on consumption by using closed-circuit cooling systems, flow regulators, rainwater recovery and collection within the industrial plant;
- as part of our diversification of energy sources and in order to meet its growing needs efficiently addition to an already active photovoltaic system, we have equipped ourselves with a co-generation plant using an endothermic natural gas turbine. In addition, a cold-water production system has recently been developed, using absorption technology associated with the co-generation plant;
- all these new investments, right from the start of their design, pay particular attention to energy saving. In this respect, we have launched a project to analyse and improve the energy consumption of our cooling systems with a view to substitute our more outdated machinery with new, highly energy efficient replacements.
With the help of this investment, 2020 will see energy savings of 50% compared to the values of total electricity purchased.
