The new photovoltaic system of the Neodecortech plant in Casoli di Atri was launched on December 16th. With more than 1,200 panels and a capacity of 500 kW, the plant will be able to supply energy equal to 20% of the electrical needs of the production site, where the Group concentrates its surface lamination activities.
The Casoli photovoltaic system joins the already existing photovoltaic plant of the Filago headquarters and the biomass production plant of the electricity needed for the paper mill. With the conviction that pursuing sustainability objectives in the medium and long term is also economically useful, the investment is a step forward on the path towards energy self-production started by the Group some time ago, that continues to focus with great force on renewables.
“This plant will allow – says AD Luigi Cologni – to avoid the production of 165 tons of CO2 equivalent/ year from fossil fuels. It is part of the wider project pursued by the Neodecortech Group to achieve as many as 10 of the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) defined by the United Nations in the 2030 agenda and which sees us particularly active on the decarbonisation front. After neutralizing carbon emissions (scope 1 and 2) for the Neodecortech Spa plants, this year we have achieved the same result for Bio Energia Guarcino, while in 2023 our commitment to counteract the effects of climate change will also affect Cartiere di Guarcino”.
