The attention to the environment allowed the company over the years to implement numerous investments with the aim of reducing energy consumption through a photovoltaic system consisting of 3200 solar panels and 750 KW of power, powering the entire production plant. In addition, a trigeneration system has recently been installed for the recovery of otherwise dispersed thermal energy, through which thermal energy with a very low environmental impact is produced.
Quality, environment and safety, three themes that have always represented the fundamental guidelines in the development of a cutting-edge company, an example of responsible and innovative chemistry. The company obtained ISO 9001 quality certification in 1999, ISO 14001 environmental certification in 2001 and, most recently, ISO 45001 safety certification in 2011.
