ENVIRONMENTAL AND FINANCIAL BENEFITS
Thanks to the application of our systems, Energia Europa contributes to protect the environment. The benefits of our products are not only economic but also environmental. The environmental conservation and the social contribution of each enterprise are now a real and competitive advantage. The main air pollutants that our energy saving systems reduce are:
Emissions from the combustion of coal in power plants represent the largest source of man-made carbon dioxide C02, the primary cause of global warming and acid rain. Each kWh saved corresponds to approximately 0,450 Kg. Of lower CO2 emissions
The main sources of nitrogen oxide come from human activities such as transportation vehicles fumes, energy production, and waste incineration.
Also known as sulfur dioxide, it is a colorless gas that comes from burning coal and oil to produce electricity as well as to heat homes and industries around the world.
PM10 is “inhalable” because it can penetrate into our respiratory system. It is produced by combustion processes (including those that occur in internal combustion engines, heating systems, in many industrial operations, incinerators and power plants.)
In addition to the reduction of elements known as pollutants, the application of E-BOX, E-POWER and E-CONTROLLER safeguards human health and the environment by operating on:
REDUCTION OF ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS
The biggest damages caused by the exposure to electromagnetic fields are tumors, leukemia, insomnia and depression. Our systems operates a reduction of electromagnetic pollution emitted from electronic devices of W \ m2 (- 30%).
LIGHT FIXTURES DISPOSAL
Reducing the disposal of cycle lamps, ballasts and starters (up to - 40%) allows you to limit the dangers coming from harmful effects that mercury causes to health and ecosystems when it is improperly wasted in the environment.
When man introduces artificial light in the external environment, outside from where it is needed, he modifies the amount of natural light, producing a form of pollution called “light pollution”. Light pollution may interfere with the connection that human beings and all other forms of life have with their natural environment.
THE KYOTO PROTOCOL is an agreement under the UN Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Countries that have ratified the protocol are committed to reducing their emissions of carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases. The Kyoto Protocol now covers more than 170 countries worldwide and more than 60% of countries in terms of global emissions of greenhouse gases. The goal is to achieve “stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent a dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.”
