NATURAL RESOURCES

The search for solutions for efficiency and the reduction of natural resource consumption has been a strongly felt objective within the organization.

Plant innovations, process analysis, and production efficiency improvements have been just some of the strategies implemented in recent years that have allowed a substantial reduction in methane and electricity consumption.

One of the most important projects that will lead to even more exciting results was the installation of a photovoltaic system of over 600kWp. The energy produced by this system is managed through intelligent industrial home automation in the main Pessano con Bornago plant.

The energy used in the Gorgonzola – APA 2 plant also comes 100% from renewable sources.

Water is a resource that is not used in our production processes. The only use is for civil purposes and the irrigation of company green areas.
