3 July 2015 - The ERG Power plant is awarded EMAS certification: another achievement as part of its goal of ongoing improvement

During the meeting of 3 July 2015, the EMAS Italy Section of the Ecolabel and Ecoaudit Committee definitively approved the EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) registration of our ERG Power plant, issuing the relevant certification, valid until 17 June 2017. The main benefits of this certification include:
  • "ECO-guarantee" certification from the competent authorities;
  • the extension to sixteen years of the term of the next Integrated Environmental Authorisation;
  • the use of the EMAS logo as a vehicle for promoting and improving the company image, demonstrating our efficiency and our commitment to safeguarding the environment.
It will be necessary to update the Environmental Declaration every year, renewing it every 3 years and confirming the environmental certification according to the ISO 14001 standard (pre-requisite of EMAS registration).  This important acknowledgment represents the completion of another phase in the evolution of ERG Power Generation (the company that owns ERG Power) as part of its ongoing improvement process, in accordance with the already-certified Integrated Quality, Environment and Safety Management System (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001).

The overall annual emissions of the ERG Power plant

The overall annual emissions of the ERG Power plant
In accordance with the data in the figure, it is possible to highlight one of the main goals achieved in recent years, that is the significant reduction in atmospheric emissions thanks to the completion of two important projects: the revamping of the old CTE plants, the opening of the new CCGT plant and the project to carry out environmental improvements to the SA1N/1 group. In fact, the previous liquid fuels were completely replaced exclusively with gaseous fuels (natural gas and fuel gas from the adjacent ISAB S.r.l. ISAB Imp. Nord refinery).

CO2 emission trends

CO2 emission trends
The monitoring, the communication to the relevant authorities and the verification of the atmospheric emissions of climate-changing gases (especially carbon dioxide, CO2) have an important role for ERG Power, which is part of the EU "emissions trading" scheme.
