A new Trigeneration Plant was installed in 2019. The Eurosets system operates on methane, and is powered by an electrical generator. As the motor rotates it also produces thermal energy that, when properly transferred, can partly provide heat for the factory and it also powers a heat-exchanger to produce cold water for air conditioning: this is why it’s called a trigenerator.
In doing this, the trigenerator uses 80% of the energy produced.
However, that’s not all: the entire company was designed taking in consideration energy savings and sustainability, with hanging gardens to naturally insulate the facility, a rainwater collection system for irrigation, interior gardens that allow for an optimum level of daylight every day, and LED lighting powered by solar panels.
This has allowed us to save 100 TOE per year, equalling 265 tonnes of CO2, the total produced by 160 cars. We therefore have been able to cut our annual emissions by 500 TOE or 1,165 tonnes of CO2, which is equal to the total emissions from 460 cars that are no longer being released into the atmosphere… not too bad! Thanks to all these measures, we have reached 81% energy autonomy, with carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen monoxide (NO) emissions being reduced to half the legal requirements. We do this because we are saving millions of lives.
