We purchase renewable energy
Starting from January 2022 we have added a very important element that demonstrates and confirms our strong sensitivity to the environment by purchasing renewable energy.
This energy is produced from renewable sources such as water, sun, wind and heat from the earth, certified by the system of "guarantees of origin" of the energy services operator, based on the EC directive 2009/28 / EC.
Our production is characterized by a low environmental impact, as the industrial process for the production of dry pasta is extremely simple and requires very few raw materials, which essentially refer to durum wheat semolina and water.
The main emissions into the atmosphere consist of the water vapor generated by the drying process of the pasta and the industrial discharges essentially consist of “clean” water used for the cooling processes of the pasta.
We are also particularly sensitive to the disposal of packaging and we collaborate with the CONAI consortium.
We have been using cogeneration technology for sustainable energy production since 2000.
The plant uses a methane engine that produces electricity and thermal energy, the latter recovered from the gas combustion cycle; this system allows for strong energy savings and good sustainability from an environmental point of view.
