The manufacturing plants have ISO:14000:2004 environmental certification on the entire production process, making them at the forefront of environmental issues. All production follows a process that minimizes the use of non-renewable energy, tending towards the recovery of all the energy produced internally, the recovery of rainwater and the reuse of production waste.
The A.I.A. is necessary to comply with the principles of Integrated pollution prevention and control already confirmed by the European Directive 2010/75/EU. This authorization requires particular attention to: the origin, the provenance and the quality of raw materials; the production process safety; the waste and emissions management; the quality of the finished product and positive impact on the environment. These are the issues that are evaluated through the A.I.A. released to the company by the Basilicata Region and which allow to obtain an ecological brick.
The desire to keep up with new production technologies, to improve the quality of life of those who choose brick-built homes, lead the company to comply with the Protocol on the Environment, an agreement signed between the Ministry of the Environment, Legambiente and the National Association of brick producers.
