An environmentally-friendly production process

An important project will be completed in 2014: a new combined heat, power and cooling plant in partnership with E.On

Awareness towards environment is one of Goglio characteristics, testified by the criteria with which the Group’s production sites have been planned and built. In particular Daverio Packaging Division (Varese), situated in a particularly prized setting, has extended its surface in the last decades both with new buildings and with integrally preserved green areas.

Furthermore a new important chapter is being added and a new combined heat, power and cooling plant (CHCP) will be fulfilled during 2014 in partnership with E.On, a Company specialized in integrated energy management solutions for commercial and industrial customers.
The new plant will annually supply the Daverio plant with approximatively 30 GWh of electricity and around 53 tons of steam, with the added benefit of both chilled and hot water supply for production processes. Goglio will therefore obtain a 30% saving on plant energy costs; at the same time, carbon emissions will be reduced by 6,300 tons per annum.
It is in this perspective that the energy agreement with E.ON has been further extended, to include the development of an innovative pilot project for the pyrolysis of production waste.

This is just one of the examples of the long-term enterprise vision leading the company to the “Best Available Technologies”: in the Seventies Daverio plant introduced a solvent recovery equipment, far anticipating up-to-date themes like “sustainability”, “biodegradability and “compostability”. Thanks to the recovery activity CO2 emissions have been drastically reduced (6.000 tons per year) with a saving of 2400 tons of solvent per year, corresponding to 80-90 tanker lorries.

 

FRES-CO GREEN®

OK COMPOST certification: goal achieved!

Goglio is proud to announce that Fres-co Green® has eventually obtained the OK COMPOST certification, completely meeting the project compostability requirements. Result of years of research of a cohesive team, the new packaging system has collected prestigious acknowledgments in 2013 as the Oscar dell’Imballaggio, the Packology Award and HOST Smart Label.

Fres-co Green® is the ideal 100% eco-friendly pack, an exceptional solution standing out for its sustainable components: both laminate and valve can be thrown in the wet waste collection and they will biodegrade within 180 days.
Perfectly compliant with EN 13432 regulations, the Vinçotte certified Fres-co Green® has been produced in partnership with Innovia Films, exclusive supplier for raw materials.
The biolaminate is composed of NATUREFLEX regenerated cellulose by Innovia, internally extruded biopolymer, bio-adhesive and certified inks, on which we apply the bio-valve, designed, manufactured and patented by the Goglio Plastic Division. Suitable for food contact according to European and non-European laws, the selected components are ideal for all dry products as coffee, flour, pasta, muesli, rice, biscuits and pet food. Furthermore the manufactured material harmoniously fits Goglio production process and the Group’s solvent recovery system.

The laminate summarizes all new environmental advantages and the traditional Fres-co System® quality: it is the first completely compostable packaging solution with bio-valve meeting the requests of the consumers. Furthermore Goglio presence with production plants in Europe, America and Asia promises to supply this new packaging solution on global basis.
