Recovery of hot air from the cooling zone of the furnaces for other processes such as drying and atomisation.
Investment in non-polluting energy with the installation of 2222 photovoltaic panels at the Cerev Production Unit. With an installed power of 1 Mwp for an annual production capacity of 1392 Mwh, the direct result is a significant impact on the reduction of consumption (13%).
Indirectly, 350 tonnes of CO2/will no longer be emitted each year due to the reduction of energy needs.
