Sustainable Printing – Maiadouro

Instalação de painéis fotovoltaicos nas instalações da sede da Maiadouro na cidade do Porto

Respect for the Environment is, for us, a value and a practice lived on a daily basis. An example of this was the construction in the year 2000, with the extension of the facilities, of a 50 cubic metre tank, where water is stored whenever it rains. It is from here that our own garden is watered.

More recently, in addition to photovoltaic panels, we have also installed natural lighting throughout the factory and renovated the compressed air plant with a technologically advanced compressor, achieving extremely high energy efficiency and maintenance.

We take special care to separate what is wasted, the liquid waste is collected by certified companies for treatment and recycling and the rest goes to the Industrial Wastewater Pre-Treatment Plant (EPTARI). We also recover paper shavings, which are sent from the guillotines directly through pipes on a conveyor belt. At the end of the process, they are baled and packed for recycling, as well as the remaining solid waste.

In addition, we are certified in the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) Chain of Custody and PEFC™ (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) which allows us to use products from responsibly managed forests.
