To celebrate the 10th year of operations of its district heating in the city of Borgaro Torinese, Cogenpower has delivered the awards for “Environmental sustainability 2018”.
Each award aimed at acknowledging the examples of leadership in the public and private sectors, which, choosing the district heating and cooling system offered by Cogenpower, has allowed the town of Borgaro Torinese, which was one of the most polluted town of the hinterland of Turin because of the low efficiency boilers and automotive traffic, to reduce pollution by over 40% cutting down dangerous emissions.
Cogenpower has stated that it has invested a lot in terms of technology not only to reach a great level of energy efficiency but also to reduce the polluting emissions; in fact, in 10 years, the power plant, which is controlled 24 h over 24 h by the competent Authority, has never recorded an overrun in the emissions other than having located the power plant outside the town.
Among the organisations that have received the awards for choosing the district heating and cooling system and in so doing cutting down the polluting emissions, there have been:
- Poste Italiane SpA
- Parrocchia SS. Cosma e Damiano
- Biverbanca Spa
- Quality Hotel Atalntic & SPA
- Residenza Casa Mia
- Polisportiva UISP River Borgaro
- ABP Nocvelli Spa
- Comune di Borgaro Torinese
During the ceremony Cogenpower has donated to the local library over 100 books relating to science and technology to encourage children and teenagers to learn more about the science and engineering world.
