Environment protection

The manufacturing of covers in composite material ensures a remarkable reduction of CO2 emission compared to cast iron.

This becomes clear when comparing the energy required to reach the temperature to mould cast iron (higher than 1200°C) and the energy required to reach the temperature to mould composite materials (near 60°Co).

The lower amount of C02 released in the atmosphere is strictly connected with the lower weight of each single cover allowing to load on a truck a number of covers three times higher than cast iron covers with subsequent reduction of pollution due to the lower number of transports.

The composite material can also be recycled for successive use which allows further reduction of the environmental impact of the product.
