In 2009 FREE COOLING exchangers were installed at VIBA for the refrigeration of process waters. This system is a valid alternative to traditional ones (cooling towers or central chillers) and minimizes energy costs while maximizing productivity. These cooling systems reach high levels of efficiency by analysing the process to be cooled and the local climatic conditions. All this provides remarkable benefits to the environment: in fact during 2010 we reported a saving of more than 380,000 kWh and specifically such improved energy efficiency resulted in a reduction of over 200 tons of CO2 being released into the atmosphere.
