Energy & Enviroment

Gruppo Romani has chosen the environment. Environmental sustainability has an important place in the company’s policies, which aim to achieve a synergetic balance between productivity and wellbeing.

The company has taken many actions to ensure outstanding energy efficiency in line with green regulations governing consumption and costs.

These include the replacement of the fleet of internal combustion lift trucks with 50 OM STILL electric trucks, the lighting of the park, the Casalgrande showroom and the laboratories with lower consumption LED lights and the replacement of our industrial electric motors with the latest high efficiency electric motors.

We have also taken action to optimise consumption related to the production of compressed air for industrial applications. Gruppo Romani has also taken action to drastically reduce the environmental impact of its recycling processes.

2016, the group obtained recognition from CONAI (the Italian Packaging Consortium) for its commitment to environmental sustainability, especially as regards savings in raw materials and the use of recycled materials.

“Materials from cradle to gate” is a Cercom project, run in collaboration with IUAV University of Venice at the Rubiera plant, for innovation regarding the measurement and monitoring of the product life cycle (LCA approach). This project has enabled Gruppo Romani to draw up a Memorandum of Understanding and obtain certification of its CO2 emissions.

Furthermore, all the company’s production lead times are 100% waste recycling: this prevents the use of materials which would otherwise be sent to dumps or other waste management centres.



The internal processes of material recycling are to permit the romani group to drastically reduce the effects of environmental impact.

Indeed all company production processing is 100% waste recycling, avoiding material transfer for use in landfills or other waste treatment and disposal centres.


Specifically:

  • Waste water resulting from processing is fully reused and metered within the process as water for body grinding, eliminating any discharge into the sewer system;

  • The aeriform powders resulting from filtration processes are fully dissolved by turbo, metered and homogenised within the slurry containment basins;

  • All raw and fired scraps are fully reintegrated and metered as primary components of the recipes of our bodies;

  • All waste resulting from the tile cutting and grinding processes is fully recovered and metered on the basis of fluid dynamics inside the body grinding department. a special and unique just-in-time pre- filtration and transmittal system for the resulting fluid is used up to the waste water pre-storage tanks which supply the continuous mills.


The Romani family and the Group’s entire team have also shown great awareness towards waste management, having some time ago implemented a programmed separate collection system.
