The Oxaquim production plant, in Alcañiz, Spain, has taken a decisive leap to reduce its already low carbon footprint. To the point that 20 percent of the electrical energy it consumes comes from the 25,000 square meters of photovoltaic solar panels, installed on the roof of the different warehouses that make up the factory.
“It has been an ambitious project and consistent with our strategy of working actively to supply ourselves with green and clean energy,” says Marc Miquel, CEO of Oxaquim.
The project, developed by Alcorídea, a leading firm in the engineering, mobility, renewable, industrial and construction sectors, has involved an investment of 1.5 million euros.
It has consisted of the complete remodeling of the factory roof and the subsequent installation of solar panels. “This action has led to an improvement in the insulation of the plant, which undoubtedly also benefits sustainability and energy savings,” Miquel points out.
Oxaquim, the first European producer and the second in the world of oxalic acid, continues to consolidate its commitment to the environment and strengthen its high-quality standards, which have made it the cleanest and most efficient manufacturer in the world.
