We at Piemme have always dedicated ourselves seriously to research. Our sense of responsibility towards the future generations motivates us to move in the direction of a world full of top-quality products, made to last over the years, conceived and manufactured in an environment-friendly way so as to leave our children a more comfortable world to live in and give them an example to follow. Piemme is a member of Green Building Council Italia and strongly supports the evolution of buildings towards eco-sustainability; the company is strongly committed, on a daily basis, towards upgrading technologies and products in order to achieve this major goal. To cut the use of natural resources and CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, Piemme has implemented the following measures: recycling of thermal energy from kilns to fuel spray driers, recycling of thermal energy from kilns to supply dryers, re-use of waste thermal energy to heat production premises – (this prevented emissions of CO2 by over 4200 t/year). A high-performance power plant has also been built which features a natural-gas fuelled air turbine.
