THE NEW FRONTIER OF CUBO DESIGN: NONPOLLUTING ENERGY THAT POWERS FACTORY ONE
The trigeneration plant on methane.
Cubo design has always shown a great interest in the protection of the environment. In 2012 our branch in Casoli di Atri (Teramo) was one of the fewest factories equipped with the first photovoltaic systems on the national territory. In this way, we achieved an important goal: avoiding the consumption of 600 tons of oil and 2000 tons of Co2 each year. In 2019 we faced a new exciting challenge, we started Factory one, an establishment in Grasciano, with a structure of 25.000 square meters.
The entire production site is powered by a trigeneration plant, able to generate, through methane, 3 types of energy: electric, thermal and refrigerated. In doing so, we succeed in producing simultaneously:
- Warm water, used for space heating and business processes;
- Cold water, used for varnishing operation and conditioning the offices and the showroom during summer
- Electricity, essential for the offices and inside the production
Why did we choose to install a trigeneration plant?
In plants where electricity and thermal energy are produced separately, there is a useless heat loss which can’t be reused in other ways, so it is spread in the surrounding environment, causing 70% of energy wastage.
In the case of the trigeneration plant instead, the losses are minimum (7,2%, up to a maximum of 23,61% during summer), since the waste heat is reused for company production flows, to warm and cool not only Factory one, but also the water used in the establishment.
Moreover, the new plant allows the significant reduction of methane consumption and prevents great amounts of polluting substances from spreading in the air.
Cubo design is broadening its horizons in order to become more and more green and to avoid energy wastage even through its trigeneration plant. The launch of the new project Easy Mobility is planned for the next few months, a new suburban mobility that will revolutionize our employees’ movements. Thanks to this unique innovation, our workers will be equipped with electric cars which will be recharged with the electricity produced in excess from the plant.
The benefits will be immediately evident: we will make our workers’ life better without pollution.
Once again, Antonio Arangiaro provides a clear example of his attitude towards the future.
Indeed, with an eye to the future, He strongly wanted to introduce solutions for the protection of the environment which are considered fundamental by the European Parliament, for achieving the objectives of the reduction of pollutant substances, set by the Kyoto protocol.
In the end, even the new project Easy Mobility demonstrates how the entrepreneur, who heads Cubo Design, commits himself concretely to study changes in order to improve the quality of life and to ensure the welfare of his workers.
