Today in the Lef Group, productive investments are thought together with sustainability practices. The processes follow rigid controls to optimize results and neutralize impacts to the environment.
Seeking the conscious and rational use of water, we have developed a project to collect rainwater for use in the stages of our production process. The entire covered area that is a total of 120,000 m2 has been optimized for the rainwater harvesting. The storage capacity is 13,000,000 liters of water.
All the water used in the process is treated and is reused in the process.
In the burning process the ceramic tile eliminate gases. These gases are filtered by the scrubber and only after this stage pure and clean air is released in the atmosphere. Every process is monitored and audited by Cetesb - the body responsible for the qualification of the air in our environment.
All the hot air generated in the process is reused, impacting on lower consumption of natural gas. We have a substation of electric power that feeds the entire industrial park.
After the controlled extraction by the responsible bodies, the areas of clay extraction are reforested with the management of the species existing in the place.
Solid waste generated through the production process is reused without changing the technical characteristics of the products.
