Aiming at sustainability

Milk production and processing milk to have a great mozzarella cheese are energy consuming procedures. The use of fossil fuels creates emissions of C02 (carbon dioxide). CO2 is the cause of the 'greenhouse effect’, leading to global warming. This development has many downsides. For this reason Boriati is trying to decrease its needs for energy and water. In the last few years we have already reached many goals. From 1995 to 2010 our energy requirements have fallen by 17%. We accomplished this result due to modifications of the production process (introduction of more energy efficient machines) and by a better heat exchange efficiency.

 

Today, one of the most important value in the evaluation of new machinery is its energy consumption and our focus is always to keep on upgrading our production lines, aiming at an increasingly high level of energy efficiency.

Transformation with low emissions

In the dairy sector, livestock produce about 64% of CO2 emissions. In this part of the supply chain there is an important factor that produces gas, which increase the greenhouse effect: the methane produced in the cows’ belly.
A further 16% is emitted during the processes of production of cattle feed. The remaining 20% is produced from the last part of the supply chain (producers of dairy products, cheese, fermented milk).

Objective Eco-Boriati 2020

Given these data, Boriati aims to boost more and more eco-sustainable solutions together with its milk suppliers.
By 2020, according to European laws, Boriati aims to use energy from renewable sources for about 20% of its consumption.
