The plants dedicated to the production of glass primary packaging generate several types of waste, depending on the nature of manufacturing operations. Today, 73% of the produced waste worldwide is recycled (percentage increasing to 97% in Europe).
Gas & Energy Consumption
In the last 4 years, Stevanato Group has been moving from predominantly bulk production to production in higher quality (SG Nexa® and SG Fina®) and sterilized SG EZ-fill®. This entails an increase both in gas and energy consumption.
The indicators are increasing because of the higher level of quality demanded by customers and because of the startup of new plants. Analysis of this trend has focused Stevanato Group’s commitment to improving energy efficiency.
We are achieving this through a number of initiatives including the re-use of heat energy produced by the forming lines, the installation of LED lamps, and the upgrading of boilers and air conditioning system with new more efficient models. We are also increasing our use of photovoltaic panels and recently installed a trigeneration system in the Headquarters in Piombino Dese.
