MANUFACTURING PROCESSES THAT ARE TRULY MORE EFFICIENT
New highly energy-efficient technologies. This is Snaidero's response to the topic of sustainability and reducing energy consumption. The installation at the production plants of high efficiency motors has led to quantifiable energy savings of approximately 190,000 KWh and a consequent reduction in CO2 emissions of 73 tons per year. These significant technological investments are combined with policies governing the constant energy consumption monitoring of individual machines. This has been implemented to identify anomalous energy consumption levels or negative trends to be improved, also in terms of preventive maintenance. The company also regularly promotes initiatives aimed at training and informing staff on the efficient and sustainable use of the systems.
SOLAR ENERGY FOR AN EVER MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Not just saving energy: Snaidero has focused also on the renewable energies, namely those which do not endanger natural resources. Solar energy is a clear example : the sun is a huge clean, renewable and cost-free energy source. For this reason, the Company has promptly and passionately considered to seize this opportunity by installing, on almost the whole roofing of the production facility, a photovoltaic panels surface. The yearly production of this system is about 4.000 MWh, meeting also a reduction of CO2 emissions by 1.440 tones.
Furthermore, the photovoltaic system helps reducing the temperature inside the production areas during the summer period, as it minimizes the solar Energy absorption; consequently, it ends up improving even the wellbeing within the work environment.
