Respect for the environment is one of the essential factors when defining Saggas activities. As evidence of our commitment to the environment, the environmental management of the plant is certified under the UNE-EN ISO 14001 standard and is registered in the Valencian Community Register of Centres with Environmental Management Systems, in accordance with the EMAS Community Regulation. Every year, we submit our environmental and energy management to an audit process, we prepare our Environmental Declaration and we submit this for verification by accredited entities, in accordance with EMAS standards.
In 2019, there have been 10 uninterrupted years of Saggas’ voluntary adherence to the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme of the European Union, EMAS, which consolidates its commitment to the environment.
The industrial waste generated by Saggas is mostly associated with the maintenance of facilities and equipment. At Saggas we have set ourselves the goal of recycling and recovering all waste wherever possible.
“Recycle, recover and valorise.”
At Saggas, we do not use mains water in our production processes. The plant uses seawater in the vaporisers, which is then returned to the sea in its original state. Fresh water is used for sanitary purposes, such as irrigation and to supply firefighting equipment.
At Saggas we carry out rigorous checks on the energy management at the plant. Our energy consumption is mainly sourced from our natural gas and from electricity.
We use auxiliary production in our processes. These are required for the correct operation of the plant.
