Sustainability

Company

Sustainable machinery, a commitment to the environment.

Industry 4.0 Machinery

Designing sustainable machinery that is as respectful as possible to the planet is one of the main objectives of the TecAIRE brand when creating machinery. And it is that on many occasions it seems that terms such as industry, machinery or factories are against sustainability.
It is clear that the resources of our planet are limited and therefore we have a firm commitment to the environment.
In this aspect, it is key to keep in mind that thinking only about the productivity of a machine or a factory, entails irreversible environmental consequences. That is why it is part of the ECO-EFFICIENCY. That is, that the reduction of the environmental impact in relation to the volume of production is reduced. In other words: We want TecAIRE machines to be as productive or more productive than in the past, but for environmental consumption to be reduced.

With the aim of reducing all direct emissions, different initiatives have been considered such as:

  • The digitalization of internal and external processes (operational with customers and suppliers)
  • The acquisition of electrical machines, which already account for 90% of the total machinery available in the manufacturing area.
  • Remote maintenance of machines thanks to the IoT to avoid unnecessary displacements.

1. Wiring of machinery and facilities.

The main supplier of electrical wiring consumes electricity in its factories and facilities in Spain 100% of renewable origin.
The coils, which carry the PEFC™ Certificate for Sustainable Forest Management, which have been consumed for more than a decade, offer the guarantee that the wood used as a raw material comes from forests managed in an environmentally friendly manner.

2. Motors.

It is about adapting the drive technology to reduce energy consumption. In a sector as large as manufacturing, what is apparently a minimal change – since it refers only to certain parts, and not to complete machines – has a huge impact. In fact, the EU estimates that Regulation (EC) 640/2009 alone will save 102 TWh of energy by 2030, and that Regulation (EU) 2019/1781 will result in additional savings estimated at 10 TWh per year.
The key is to have a comprehensive vision in which all components are efficient to perform a real and detailed analysis of energy consumption and act accordingly.
TecAIRE has electric drive suppliers that reaffirm their commitment to SUSTAINABILITY and their commitment to energy efficiency, seeking to reduce their carbon footprint to the atmosphere by incorporating an intelligent and centralized system of facilities management, , the placement of photovoltaic panels, the notable improvement of the thermal envelope of the building, installation of LED systems with regulated DALI, efficient air conditioning system, incorporation of parking spaces with electric charger, etc.

3. Automation.

Siemens, the main supplier of the material for automation and drives in the machinery, reduces CO2 emissions in Spain by 90% and globally by 54%.
Siemens has reached the intermediate target they had set for the reduction of carbon emissions. The company has reduced the carbon footprint of its production chain by more than half (54%) since 2014. With this mark, Siemens has exceeded, by four percentiles, its goal of halving its global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 2020. Including Siemens Energy, this percentage represents around 1.2 million tonnes of CO2 compared to its 2014 levels.
In the case of Siemens Spain, this figure is even higher. Thanks to the use of renewable sources to provide energy to its facilities, as well as improvements in efficiency and use of a fleet of hybrid and electric cars, it has been possible to achieve a 90% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to 2014 data.
Sustainability initiatives are an essential aspect of successfully implementing Siemens’ Vision 2020+ Strategic Program. The understanding of sustainability is fully based on the values of the company: responsible, excellent, innovative. At Siemens, sustainable development is defined as the means to achieve profitable and long-term growth. In doing so, externally, it aligns with the goals of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, while, internally, it strives to balance people, the environment, and benefits.

4. Commissioning and maintenance.

The remote maintenance of TecAIRE machines and installations thanks to the IoT avoiding unnecessary displacements.
Thanks to the internet, the number of physical trips worldwide to carry out the commissioning and maintenance of machines and facilities has been reduced.

QH.
The flue gas burners used in TecAIRE installations are standardised and normalised with the aim of achieving greater sustainability.
CREMAX is particularly active in the alternative energy sector. We can supply burners for alternative fuels. In addition, the range has been extended with fuel burners for renewable energy sources that promote sustainability.

The design and study of the new low emission heads (LOW NOx), the electronic air-fuel control regulations together with the incorporation of variable frequency drives in the engines and the control of O2 oxygen in combustion, increases energy savings considerably and better respect for the environment.

5. Manufacturing.

The manufacture of TecAIRE equipment is carried out with sustainable materials as much as possible:
Steps are taken in the manufacturing plan to avoid waste such as outsourcing of machining processes in which they are carried out through long runs and not manufacturing piece by piece.
It is manufactured using iron, stainless steel or aluminum sheets that already comes with the shape defined by laser cutting to avoid the disposal of materials generating unsustainable waste.
The gases used for welding are certified by AENOR with the ISO 14001 standard; its production process is part of the clean and non-polluting industry since the obtaining of nitrogen, oxygen and argon is based solely on physical processes, using air as a raw material. However, the separation of compounds from the air is an energy-intensive process.
All welding machines have been renovated in the last year generating less energy consumption, The manufacturer of welding machines “SOLTER” is committed to the environment; develop their products with energy-efficient INVERTER technology that incorporate solutions such as the “Stand-By” disconnection system focused on energy saving.

6. Office, administration and technical department

he electricity contracted in the company is 100% renewable energy.
An internal culture of the non-use of plastics for the consumption of packaging during the working day is being motivated, thus contributing to generate less waste.
The 3D and PLM design system has been implemented that helps to not generate unnecessary printed documentation during the day-to-day work.

    Company history

    Company

    44+ years of excellenceTecAIRE since 1978

    In 1978 the history of what, over the years, would become the TecAIRE at Terrassa (Barcelona) Spain, with the manufacturing of industrial machinery by Jordi Cabré, a great designer with a passion for the industrial processes of coffee and cocoa. This marks the beginning of the TecAIRE history for coffee and cocoa industrial machinery manufacturing, such as roasters for natural and sugar coated coffee, roasters for cocoa beans and nibs and complete industrial coffee and cocoa installations for customers all over the world.

    An absolutely pioneering technology modernises industrial coffee roasting processes, especially for sugar coated coffee, in just a few years. The process is transformed from an artisanal and rudimentary method to today’s fully technified and modernised process with the highest quality standards. It is the first in Spain to be 100% designed and manufactured with technology, positioning itself as the great Spanish reference worldwide.

    In 2020, TecAIRE has 300 coffee, cocoa and cereal projects in 30 countries around the world. These projects range from individual industrial equipment such as roasters for natural coffee, sugar coated coffee or cocoa; industrial coffee mills to complete plants and industrial plants for coffee, cocoa and spices.
