Environmental loading reduction – Decrease of Water Consumption

Decrease of water consumption

Takasago de Mexico completed the replacement of all urinals by ecological urinals, which does not consume any drop of potable water for its normal function, only is used a little quantity of water for its cleaning process. The installation of this urinals helps to decrease the water consumption approximately in the order of 60 m3 for each urinal every year.

Decrease of water consumption

Takasago de México monitors water consumption in each process of the plant to establish more specific water saving measures.

Takasago de Mexico has installed water-saving devices in bathrooms and in their production processes, which include water saving economizer faucet for hand washing, water saving economizer shower and electric powered cold-water pressure washers for cleaning equipment.

Separation and Recycling of Waste

This initiative considered the replacement of incandescent or fluorescent spotlight by LED technology. Currently, this technology has some benefits, the principal advantage is the low consumption of energy, about 60 % less than the fluorescent spotlight, average lifetime is 50,000 hours, it means up to 5 years, thereby reducing maintenance and operations costs, as well as hazardous waste generation. Takasago de Mexico has realized the change of 65% of the total number of luminaries by LED technology.

ELECTRIC POWER

Another initiative is the use of natural light, for this reason Takasago de Mexico has installed ceilings with translucent sheets in productive areas, this allows to keep the luminaries off during the work shift.

Environmental loading reduction – Handling of Non-Hazardous Solid Waste

The different kind of non-hazardous waste is properly separated and is sending to its adequate reclamation, those waste are generated in all the areas of Takasago Mexico. The total quantity of recyclable waste such as Cardboard, Metal, Glass, Plastic, and Wood is sent to recycling, more than 70 % of the total waste generated is sent to recycling.

Decrease water consumption in the cleaning process of equipment.
