Porcel is proud to contribute to the protection of the environment, through daily actions that decrease our environmental impact.
In 2017, we joined a power reduction plan that was reflected on measures such as the installation of a modulating control cabin on the glaze ovens, as well as variable speed drives on the associated ventilators.
In the kilns, which can reach up to 1400oC, we do energetic cargo optimization through space maximization and firing optimization. The last one is attained through cargo procedures and the use of highly calorific fuels, for instance natural gas.
Additionally, we always consider electric efficiency when buying equipment, and are gradually replacing all our lighting for LED technology. This is combined with natural light, that besides being more sustainable, helps the space become more pleasant and assures the well-being of our workers.
