At Albenfruit we are committed to the environment and to the reduction of CO2, emissions, minimising our carbon footprint as much as possible. This concern and commitment has driven us to install a photovoltaic power station on the roof of our main building: A move that enables us to save 30% of the power we consume.
Albenfruit has participated in the “Energy Saving and Efficiency in Industry” Programme, which carries out energy improvement projects with the aim of promoting a low-carbon economy and responsibility for the environment.
The Valencian Institute of Business Competitiveness (IVACE) has subsidised several of these projects:
- File IDAT1/2021/403 “Albenfruit 2 Self-consumption photovoltaic installation”, within the IDAE AUTOCONSUMO programme co-financed by NEXT GENERATION funds as part of the European Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan. It consisted of the installation of a photovoltaic installation for self-consumption on a rooftop with 693 modules and an installed power of 315.31 kWp, with which a reduction in CO2 emissions of 208.92 T CO2/year has been achieved.
- File E4IN12/2017/183, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). It consisted on replacing the fluorescent lamps in the preservation chambers with LED type lights, achieving an initial reduction in consumption of 60%, equivalent to 30744 kWh, thus obtaining a 11.84 T CO2/year decrease in emissions.
- File E4IN12/2016/193, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). It consisted on the installation of translucent panels on the roof of the pre-calibration area, eliminating the need for luminaires for at least 8 hours/day, which is equivalent to 24860 kWh, achieving a 22.64 T CO2/year reduction in CO2 emissions.
- File E4IN12/2014/130, which has been co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). It consisted on the installation of a frequency converter for a 200 Kw compressor and the conditioning for using the residual heat from the cold chambers by managing it through a computer system. This has led to a 8.21 T CO2/year reduction in CO2 emissions.
