OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Our company policy stays on the principles of reducing risk factors and respecting the environment. We intend to pursue renewal at all levels, adopting appropriate and cutting-edge technologies, methods, and approaches that allow an improvement of the technical and aesthetic performance of the product and a reduction of the environmental impact.
Investments in 4.0 technologies contribute to the optimization of material and energy consumption thanks to the reuse of waste in the production process and to the reduction of emissions.
In early 2023 we installed machinery with new technologies to improve energy efficiency and reduce our environmental footprint.
The adoption of a new kiln, 170m long, has allowed PIEMME to achieve significant energy savings and advantages on quality production.
– The kiln is equipped with an “oxygenator” to properly regulate the volumes of combustion and optimize the amount of methane’s consumption.
– The latest-generation burners are designed to reduce NOx emissions and improve the heat exchange with the material.
– The heat generated during the indirect heating phase is recovered and is then used by the new “Zero-Fuel” dryer, also recently installed.
The inline pressing machine along with the possibility of cutting the material to the required size, allows the system to recycle 100% the waste material, further improving the productivity.

We have achieved an important goal in terms of circular economy: we reuse all process waste. Terracotta, raw materials, water, and process sludge are totally reused in the production cycle, also limiting the use of water resources, reaching over 99% of reused material.
The pre-consumer recycled material allows us to reach the LEED standard for the construction of eco-sustainable buildings.
With the purpose to safeguard the employees’ health and safety, we have been using low emission inks for some years now, which can significantly reduce the spread of odorous and organic substances.
The solutions we provide are the result of more than 60 years of activity made of research, experience, and passion. We use the latest generation of tools and select the highest quality raw materials for our products. We work with companies that share our values and are committed to offering solutions and processes that are less and less impacting on the environment.
