- V Zero dumping of wastewater: recycle 100% of the water in the production process itself, without physicochemical treatments.
- Re-used ceramic waste generated from the production process: In the case of klinker tiles, more than 99% of ceramic waste is re-used as raw materials in the manufacturing process, resulting in a sandstone containing up to 45% pre-consumer recycled material.
- Ongoing energy efficiency improvements. We made investments to reduce energy consumption, mention should be made of optimizing kiln consumption of gas in clinker process production.
