""Making progress with respect for the environment, working to create beauty.""
In the spirit of the Kyoto Protocol of 1997, to take care of present and future common good,
Cerruti has created a harmonious rapport with the environment by installing, first among the
woollen mills, a co-generation plant for the production of electrical energy, steam and hot water by using vegetable oil versus traditional fuel. This oil is obtained from the seeds of the Jatropha Curcas,
a non-food plant able to grow in marginal, semi desert areas, with little rainfall.
Even if it is not required by current environmental legislation, the plant is equipped with DENOX – SCR systems that drastically reduce NOx. Emissions. The results are emission levels that are 20 times lower than those established by the current regulations for the substance. (Legislative Decree no. 152, 03/04/06).
The company has taken all necessary precautions to reduce environmental impact
with solutions aimed at every sector.
A rationalization plan of processes has been introduced for the reduction of consumption and for the re-use of waste water. Furthermore, a biological treatment plant has been implemented for the treatment of waste waters. This allows the company to put the water directly back into the adjacent river (Legislative Decree 152, 2006 and its amendments). Through such measures the Lanificio F.lli Cerruti is able to maintain the vital minimum flow of the river without impoverishing the ecosystem.
Moreover, a plant for the disposal of fine dust has been installed, which, through a filtering system, allows completely purified air to be expelled into the atmosphere, in full compliance with the current legislation.
Finally, a suction and conveyance system in disposal towers purifies all emissions generated in each production phase.
Planning for the future through tireless research in sustainable progress, Cerruti confirms itself as pioneer and reference point also in the environmental field, proposing Bio Cashmere in its own collection, the first product to obtain the textile health certificate.
A discreet and elegant object, in which Cerruti taste
uses Frezzato’s art to celebrate the installation
of a co-generation system.
This new visual element gently combines
with the project of the company which openly pursues
the idea of a sustainable product.
