The Ambruosi & Viscardi company considers the environmental conservation a fundamental aspect for the quality of life and the sustainable development.
The choices made on the subject of the environment not only ensure the continual and punctual respect for the legislation and the applicable regulation, but allow us also to achieve a continual improvement of the environmental performances, always aiming at preventing pollution. All this is done because the company wants to guarantee that its productions are made respecting the environment. Thus, all the investments made in the last years have limited the impact our productive chain has on the ecosystem.
All the factories in Sant’Elpidio a Mare are entirely fuelled by clean energy obtained by using 6600 solar panels put on the factories’ roofs and able to produce 1.2 Megawatt of clean electric energy, which permits energy self-sufficiency.
All the garbage got in the production process is managed through agreements with companies specialized in recycling and, in case of special waste, with waste disposal companies.
We consider the possible environmental consequences also in the transport phases, trying to limit the impacts where possible. Here is why during the choice of the lands to be cultivated, in the evaluation parameters, we have introduced also the distances from the business centre and the theoretical consumptions of fuel, in order to limit the transports and the emissions in the atmosphere.
Another choice has been that of buying methane-fuelled means of transport, replacing the diesel-fuelled ones, and our aim is to replace all of them.
PROCESS VEGETABLES WASTE
At present, it is used as organic fertilizer on our lands and in part it is carried to our biogas plant to produce electric energy. The energy produced will be used to fuel the new fifth range factory.
The residual compost produced by the plant will be used as organic amendment to fertilize the lands.
