Our energy is getting greener
The photovoltaic system set up on our roof covers an area of 1,389 square metres, on which 868 photovoltaic panels with a power of 197 Wp have been installed, which produce approximately 213,000.00 kWh of clean energy per year.
These are some of the numbers that portray the plant. Based on these numbers, it is also possible to establish how many harmful substances are not released into the atmosphere thanks to this system:
- 104.12 tons of CO2 (carbon dioxide)
- 140.65 tons of SO2 (sulphur dioxide)
- 109.79 tons of NOx (nitrogen oxides)
The production of electricity using fossil fuels, first of all crude oil, involves the emission of polluted substances and greenhouse gases. Among these gases, the most relevant is carbon dioxide CO2, which is believed to be the main cause of the increase in the “greenhouse effect”. SO2 (sulphur dioxide) and NOx (nitrogen oxides) are extremely harmful both to human health and to the artistic and natural heritage, being the main culprits of “acid rain”. The energy balance of the Earth’s ecosystem is in deficit: to cope with this problem, the need arose to use sustainable energy systems from an environmental and economic point of view, by supporting alternative and renewable energy sources.
Among these sources, the photovoltaic conversion of solar energy is considered one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly renewable sources. Thanks to the new plant, Novartiplast contributes to safeguarding the environment even when production stops: the energy produced in that period is fed into the grid and offers the local community the opportunity to use clean energy.
Our formulations are also getting greener
We have developed a dedicated and highly sustainable product. The Bionova line can be customized according to customer requests. The product can be declined in various proposals obtaining in fact a bio attributed content, bio based and/or if required, also recycled. An innovative formulation used in our compounds gives to the product a Bio attribution definitely which gives a better sustainability to our vinyls.
This product line combines organic raw materials as well as raw materials coming from a circular economy.
This type of product doesn’t belong to our stock service line but can be done upon request for customised products.
To date, the type of chemical raw materials used for the Bionova line makes our products greener.
