One of the foremost priorities of our company has always been -and continues being so- achieving manufacturing processes and products as environmentally friendly as possible.
The assumption of this fact may seem commonplace, yet it should be noted that the technological complexity it implies is very important and significantly influences the manufacturing process of a small-sized company like ours, which must handle sophisticated raw materials and also develop manufacturing processes of a somewhat complex technological nature.
PAIGUM has already implemented for some time a zero discharge rate system, including the systematic recycling of raw materials, byproducts and below standard manufactured products, not to mention the distillation and most efficient use of solvents and other petroleum products. Those manufacturing residues that cannot be reused are disposed of solely through a specialized operator. Smoke emission into the atmosphere is minimal, since most of our production processes are carried out at moderate temperature, aiming for maximum energy efficiency and avoiding the emission of polluting gases. We also filter the air of our processing plant before returning it to the outside environment.
As discussed on page 21 of our TERMS & CONDITIONS, all materials manufactured based on polyurethane have, once they are applied by experienced technicians and properly catalyzed, a very high chemical inertness, resulting in a negligible impact on the environment.
