Productive consumption of resources

Productive consumption of resources

Measured according to the calorific value of the fuels used, we managed to reduce the energy consumption by 1,5%, while production has been increased by 7%.

Emissions generation

At Molinos we prioritize the identification and evaluation of the environmental impact produced by our operations. At the same time we try to efficiently manage the carbon emissions of our manufacturing process.

* Emissions generated by fossil fuel consumption (natural gas, diesel and fuel oil).
** Emissions generated by public network energy consumption.

 

While the gas consumption increased by 16%, there was an important reduction of more than 50% in GLP, gasoil and fuel oil.  Molinos plants reduced their energy consumption by 6% compared with year 2013. This energy efficiency resulted in an annual saving of 4% in the total C02 emissions of Molinos plants.

Thanks to our own energy generation from biomass alternative fuel, we have avoided to release 54.904 Ton CO2.
