ENVIRONMENTAL

PROTECTION

We develop services, products and processes

aimed at purifying water and
reducing air pollution.

The European Commission has given itself until 2050 to become Carbon Neutral. To get there, all Member States must work to promote policies to reduce their environmental impact.

 

Among the determining factors that led to this choice, the first one is certainly air pollution. The second is water.

AIR POLLUTION

Air pollution is defined as any time the normal composition or state of the atmospheric air is modified, due to the presence of substances in such quantities and with such characteristics as to alter the normal environmental and health conditions of the air and therefore constitute a danger to human health, alter biological resources and ecosystems.

For many substances, there are regulations that set limits of acceptability and establish “air quality” standards for concentration values over an entire reference year. These limits are related to health: above them, the conditions for the protection of public health fail to be met. To track these parameters, monitoring networks based on detection units have been installed for more than 50 years.

As far as emission sources are concerned, anthropogenic sources can be traced back to five main business sectors:

  • Transport
  • Thermal power stations
  • Industry
  • Domestic and tertiary
  • Agriculture and fisheries
WATER
POLLUTION

Water purification and efficiency involve reducing consumption and discharges in terms of volume, pollutant load and relative toxicity.

In 2018, the Ellen Mac Arthur Foundation along with other relevant partners, set out in “Water and Circular Economy: a white paper” how circular economy principles can be applied to efficient management of water services arguing that “water systems intersect with all strata of society and industry and at these interfaces there are opportunities to add value by applying Circular Economy principles.”

 

According to the United Nations World Water Development Report

in the last 100 years the use of water
in the world has increased 6 times

and continues to grow steadily, with a progressive deterioration in the quantity and quality of available drinking water. Water is used in many industrial processes, most of which require a series of mechanical, physical or chemical pre-treatments to make it usable and for this reason it is important to study a new approach that foresees the optimisation of the water cycle not just in terms of cost savings but also of the quality of the final water and the preservation of the ecosystem.

A water treatment process generally requires the combination of several technologies. The choice of these technologies is also determined by the final destination of the treated water (human consumption, industrial use, discharge into sewers or surface waters, recycling).

WHAT WE DO

Air, soil and
water quality

We find solutions to improve air, soil and water quality in all respects.

AIR

In order to contribute to the reduction of atmospheric pollution we have chosen, in addition to other projects and technologies, to bring to Italy SETH, a system to reduce emissions due to the presence of ships in port.

WATER

We work in the field of water efficiency, to make businesses more efficient, economically sound and environmentally sustainable.
monitoraggio-smeth

MONITORING: SMET

We have developed, in collaboration with Exalto, a monitoring dashboard of all the dimensions related to environmental sustainability, starting from energy and arriving at gas, water and waste through a careful analysis of the use of processes, thus managing to significantly reduce consumption and related costs The data collection and processing software is accessible from any device in real time and remotely, through the use of the most common Internet browsers that also allows for directional reporting.
