In the name of eco-sustainability

In the last five yers Epta has invested in innovation more than 50 million euros. A commitment that reflects in every project and in every production process: to fulfil this commitment we have adopted the scientific LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) method, which measures the environmental impact of every product through careful evaluation of each of its life phases, from production to installation, to maintenance and ultimately to final disposal at the end of its life cycle.  

There are about 100 engineers in the Research & Development  team, all involved in the study of cutting edge technologies, for example in the rapidly developing area of CO2 refrigeration systems. CO2 is a natural refrigerant with a GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 1, very low if we compare it with a traditional R404 plant, which has a GWP of 3.922. This philosophy was further expanded through the decision to develop innovative green policies for the creation of zero impact manufacturing facilities. The Group has made innovative choices in professional training as well; each year, at the Epta CO2 Training Centre in England, courses are organised to train refrigeration professionals from many countries. Moreover, thanks to an e-learning platform, Epta provides 23,000 hours of training to Group employees each year.
