Students taking a Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain, recently made a visit to the Lafarge factory in Sagunto, as part of their Atmospheric Emission Control and Correction course.
The students were accompanied by María José Muñoz, Professor at the University, and Raquel Cezón, Environmental Manager at the factory. Cezón was in charge of giving a talk and guiding the visit through the facilities, showing students the processes involved in cement production, from the obtaining of raw materials to the manufacture of the final product, cement.
The students had the opportunity to find out about the preventive and corrective measures adopted by the plant to ensure the protection of the environment, the reduction of CO2 emissions, control of materials and emissions, management of waste, energy and mineral recovery, use of closed-cycle water and energy optimisation.
The Lafarge factory in Sagunto has an environmental optimisation team, which together with the techniques already implemented, the generation of high-performance products and added value in sustainability, make this plant one of the most environmentally advanced of the LafargeHolcim Group.
This initiative is part of the Sagunto factory’s objective to contribute to the education of young people as a fundamental aspect of sustainability.
