Grupo PAVISA furnace designs reduce emissions through “oxyfuel” technology which eliminates the need for air combustion and heat recovery devises. This increases the temperature and eliminates the nitrogen ballast in the atmosphere, resulting in a significant reduction of emissions.
The main advantages of this technology are:
- Lower levels of SOx and NOx; reducing Grupo PAVISA’S carbon footprint
- Superior glass quality
- Lower fuel consumption
- No need to preheat the air
- Faster furnace unloading
- Increased productivity through control of variations in the combustion process
Management | Hazardous Waste
Grupo PAVISA controls and monitoring procedures reduce Hazardous Waste inherent in the glass manufacturing process. From 2017 to date, we have achieved a decrease of 52.89%.
Footprint | Carbon
Grupo PAVISA monitors consumables and auxiliary services having an environmental impact with the aim of enhancing our manufacturing processes for the benefit of the environment. This monitoring enables an accurate calculation of our carbon footprint, which in 2017, amounted to 106,188 tonCO2e. In addition to process improvements Grupo PAVISA actively works with the community to better the environment. Grupo PAVISA took part in the reforestation campaign and river clean-up in the State Metropolitan Park “Los Remedoos” (dam section), located in Naucalpan de Juarez, State of Mexico.
Preservation | Reforestation
Reforestation campaign and river clean-up in the State Metropolitan Park “Los Remedios” (dam section), located in Naucalpan de Juarez, State of Mexico. With the support and cooperation of the Naucalpan General Environmental Management (NGEM), we successfully planted 400 pine-oak trees. The primary goal of the NGEM is to counter the effects of deforestation and to promote the forest restoration, preventing the loss of ecosystem services.
