01 Dec Reduction of the carbon footprint in the ceramic tile
Mykonos Cerámica embraces energy efficiency measures and leverages the best available technologies to reduce carbon footprint and decrease CO2 emissions.
Key measures adopted in the Spanish ceramic sector include:
- Recovery of residual heat.
- Replacement of more efficient burners in kilns to achieve a reduction in gas consumption.
- High-efficiency kilns.
- High-efficiency cogeneration systems.
- Use of natural gas (currently the cleanest available fuel).
Due to constant applications of technological improvements and innovations in the field of energy efficiency, the total CO2 emissions from the ceramic industry per ton of fired product have decreased by 60% since 1980.
