halve CO2 emissions

TO REALLY ASSESS THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF A PRODUCT, IT IS NECESSARY TO LOOK AT THE WHOLE PICTURE: THE LIFE CYCLE OF THE PRODUCT.


1. ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS

Where the product was manufactured? The greater the distance the greater the CO2 emissions.
With which material? Cement, lime, natural hydraulic lime, gypsum. Every kind has its own footprint.
With which production technology?
On those points, Origami 5 is, without any doubt, the most ecological productive system available on the market.



2. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF PRODUCING MORTARS WITH THE CLASSICAL SYSTEM AND PRODUCING THEM WITH THE PERSONAL FACTORY SYSTEM

We have installed a photovoltaic system, which is able to produce more energy than is needed, so that we can compensate a good part of emissions from a little freight.



3. COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH

About 3 years ago, our working group has tried to analyse the impact on CO2 emissions of mortar production for the building industry.
We have considered the formula for a thick plaster. The analysis reveals that with ORIGAMI 5, production springs to 50% CO2 (288,8 g/kg) less than with classical system (626 g/kg).



4. CHEMICAL KITS

First in our sector, we have adopted an internal disciplinary code that binds us to a production policy focused on the highest dosing precision and on by-products recycling. Thus, we have been able to obtain a production cycle with no waste material. All our products are products in water dispersion for two main reasons: because water dilution products have a very low environmental impact in comparison to the solvents ones and because water is available on all markets on which we are present. That is why all our water dilution products are sold dry.
This way we can further reduce the quantity of material to be transported on the long distances. Our company policy implies an attempt to reduce to the minimum packaging, which is always less than 0.5% of the packed product, to facilitate its reuse, and to use only easily recyclable materials, such as paper, carton, and PE. The reduction of packaging also reduces the material to be transported.
