Environmental Protection


The use of natural gas enables us to considerably reduce emissions into the atmosphere, which means that we easily comply with the requirements of the Kyoto Protocol.

Furthermore, the cogeneration plants manage to achieve a major reduction in emissions and improve on energy saving.

The improvement that we achieve is considerably greater than other manufacturers that, instead of using cogeneration, still rely on coal or petroleum in their production.

In addition to recycling all the company’s waste, Ladrillerías also applies other major measures to improve its environment policies, such as:

–          Complete and comprehensive quarry restoration.

–          Recovering the rainwater for production processes.

–          Recovering rejected products so they can be re-evaluated and reused.

–          Reforestation in the quarry and manufacturing zones by planting thousands of trees and other plants.

All of this is endorsed by Environmental Management Certification ISO 14001.
