QUINTO DI TREVISO, ITALY — Golfetto Sangati announced in February that it has installed a photovoltaic system on the roof of its production unit in Quinto di Treviso, Italy.
With an average energy production of 926,000 kWh/year obtained by means of 3,442 modules spread over an area of approximately 6,000 square meters, the investment ensures the Pavan Group plant a significant reduction in its environmental impact, the company said.
During the sunniest months, production activities can be sustained entirely by solar energy, avoiding any polluting energy sources. This will enable zero pollutant emissions for the production of electricity, avoiding the emission of nearly 400 tonnes of CO2 and 160 TOE (tons of oil equivalent) per year.
The focus on environmental balance is applied to all the activities carried out by the group’s companies, both in the development of technology and machinery able to optimize energy resources and in the adoption of an environmentally sustainable organizational and production model.
Along with the use of clean energy sources and limiting the consumption of water and natural gas, the group implements a complete control of the production process in order to encourage the use of environmentally-friendly and recyclable construction and packing materials.
