With the implementation of photovoltaic systems in 2012, LPR achieved significant energy savings for its plants through the use of renewable energy.
The use of this technology stems from the need to combine:
- compatibility with architectural and environmental protection requirements;
- no noise pollution;
- fossil fuel savings;
- production of electricity without emission of pollutants.
To date, electricity production still relies on fossil sources, such as coal, oil and natural gas.
Considering an annual production of 2,369,990 kWh among all plants, 441 tons of oil and atmospheric emissions of 1,188,318 kg of CO2, 935 kg of SO2, 1,070 kg
of NOx and 35 kg of particulates are saved every year.
