As early as 1982 Emilgroup became one of the first companies in the industry to install a closed water cycle. After undergoing chemical-physical treatment, all wastewater from the production plants is completely recycled without any industrial water discharged into the environment.
Emilgroup has recycled all of its processing waste since 1989, reusing all unfired reject tiles and ceramic sludge in its body mixes and limiting the generation of waste. It also recovers production waste from other ceramic companies in the district, as per a specific authorisation.
Internal waste is carefully sorted and sent for recovery at authorised companies.
Atmospheric emissions are constantly monitored and well below the limits established by the authorisations thanks to the careful management of the plants.
The water-based inks used for digital decoration reduce odours and do not contain any harmful substances for operators.
