Carbonitalia aims to continually improve product quality and safety by constantly reducing the environmental impact of our production processes, which is attained by promoting the ECO-SUSTAINABILITY of the latter, and also thanks to the following certification:
- UNI EN ISO 9001:2015,
- UNI EN ISO 14001:2015,
- UNI EN ISO 22000:2005.
In this regard, Carbonitalia aims to reduce the consumption of resources used in our activities/processes by literally applying the principle of ECO-SUSTAINABILITY, such that the next generation will have the same amount of resources as the previous generation.
100% Eco-sustainable Products
The Activated Carbons produced by Carbonitalia, in collaboration with the Chinese Company Yuanli Active Carbon L.t.d., are GREEN products derived 100% from PLANT MATTER and raw materials which are ECO-SUSTAINABLE.
Both nut shells and wood are raw materials used for producing Activated Carbon. They are obtained without impacting the environment, through adherence to a policy of protecting and safeguarding the forests surrounding the different production sites. Yuanli Active Carbon L.t.d. , in fact, has an agreement with the Chinese government which allows for the controlled cutting and replanting of trees, which consequently bring about the renewal of the forest ecosystem.
Thanks to this green supply chain, our Activated Carbon is 100% NATURAL, ECO-SUSTAINABLE and in line with current measures safeguarding and protecting the environment.
Our Activated Carbon is activated through the use of 100% FOOD GRADE phosphoric acid, which is purified and reutilized after each production cycle, such that its impact on the environment and water resources is reduced to a minimum.
Pure and safe products
Our Activated Carbon is characterized by a very high level of purity, due to the specific type of activation and raw materials used, as well as by a very high active surface, which makes it ideal for treating, purifying and bleaching materials derived from the Chemical, Food and Pharmaceutical industries.
Moreover, all of our finished products satisfy the regulations of the consortium, REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals), of which Carbonitalia is a member.
Our technical staff is continually searching for sustainable solutions for our entire production process.
To further reduce environmental impact and the production of energy from non-renewable sources, all our production plants are energy autonomous as they utilize secondary raw materials for fuel. Given this cycle, the production of waste is minimized by applying the principle of recovery and recycling.
Great attention is given to CO2 emissions and protection of the atmosphere, as all plants are equipped with CO2 abatement systems; for the production of 1 kg of Eco-sustainable Activated Carbon only 0.77 kg of CO2 is emitted into the atmosphere, as compared to the 5.1 kg which is released in order to generate 1 kg of standard Activated Carbon.
