We apply circularity criteria in the management of the resources used in our industrial processes and the waste they generate
Fewer resources consumed...
At Ercros we use the resources required by our processes in a sustainable manner and we report transparently on the evolution of consumption and the generation and recovery of waste.
Our commitment is to reduce water and energy consumption as much as possible. To achieve this, we modernise and optimise our facilities; we implement the most efficient technology; we reuse water from wastewater treatment plants whenever possible; and we have closed-circuit cooling systems and reuse resources, among other measures.
... Less waste generated
Our priority is to reduce the generation of waste as much as possible and, with the waste that is finally produced, we apply criteria of reduction, reuse and recycling. Whenever possible, we manage waste in our own treatment plants for reuse in our industrial processes. If, due to the type of waste, it is not possible to manage it internally, we send it to specialised companies for the corresponding treatment.
Evolution of the waste generated by our industrial activity
Circular economy in the 3D Plan
Within the decarbonisation pillar, the 3D Plan includes several actions aimed at improving the circularity of the energy and raw materials we use and the products we manufacture.
Action to reuse moulding powder rejection material.
New solvent recovery plant for reuse in the centre itself and maximisation of the use of residual energy from the heat flows of the production processes.
We reuse packaging and pallets, and use recycled packaging and/or packaging made from recycled materials.
We undertake external commitments to implement specific best practices on waste management.
