As a global leader, Nestlé Waters considers all possibilities given by alternatives energies to reduce emissions. For this reason, we invested in new energies like biomass in Italy or liquefied petroleum gas in Argentina.
Quick Facts :
Bottled water industry: using bio-mass boiler in Italynergy in Italy Nestlé Waters Italy has invested in a biomass boiler that produces 100% renewable energy at the Pejo plant.
This boiler replaced the previous oil-powered boiler. The biomass used to operate the boiler is sourced from wood production and waste wood chips, all from within 40km of the plant.
The Pejo plant has a long-term goal of providing enough energy to connect nearby towns to a network grid that utilises renewable energy from the biomass boiler.
Nestlé Waters Italy spearheaded a consortium in March 2010 to finance energy from renewable sources like wind, photovoltaic and hydroelectric. . The Consortium San Pellegrino Nestlé Green Energy is owned in equal share by San Pellegrino and Nestlé Italy, alongside a pool of private investors.
Approximately 51GWh of energy would be financed each year, approximately half of which is sourced from the Wind Energy Park, which is the property of the Consortium.
The San Bernardo spring, plus five other bottled water plants and two Nestlé Italy plants will use the energy supplied by the Consortium through the national grid.
Bottled water industry : fuel-efficient forklifts in Argentina
In 2005, gasoline-fuelled forklifts at the ECO DE LOS ANDES plant in Argentina were replaced with LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) forklifts in an effort to reduce emissions.
Our successful reduction of these gases includes CO, HC, NOx, lead, C6H6 and particulates :
