Being eco"logical" means using the head to care for our things.
Gayafores tiene un especial compromiso con el medio ambiente. Nuestra apuesta por la sostenibilidad es máxima, tanto con respecto al aprovechamiento eficiente de recursos energéticos como en lo referente al tratamiento de residuos, reducción y reciclado
100% involved in energy efficiency
Gayafores has two thermal oil heat recovery facilities. One for capturing heat from cogeneration exhaust gases and another for capturing residual heat from the plant baking furnaces.
This involves recovering the heat from the ovens and cogeneration exhaust gases to provide hot air for the drying process. Heat is recovered through air and oil heat exchangers and thermal oil circuits.
The total heat supplied to the driers under normal working conditions saves the equivalent of 1,000 kW (Higher Heating Value) of natural gas for a maximum air working temperature of 185 oC, which means a reduction of 649 tonnes of CO2/year in atmospheric emissions.
We control atmospheric emissions of particles by using dry aspiration filters, monitored offline to ensure proper operation, and emissions of combustion gases, which are audited and verified against the appropriate environmental quality standards as laid down by Integrated Environmental Authorisation directives, in order to comply with the Kyoto Protocol for improving the environment by preventing climate change.
Waste handling and recycling.
All waste is classified, stored and passed to authorised waste management companies who certify its proper disposal. We also make efficient use of water in the production process and have a packaging system that minimises use of materials and waste in the packaging process.
Gayafores cuenta con la Autorización Ambiental Integrada y la Global EPD (Declaración Integral de Producto) certificada por AENOR.
