Manufacturing without waste
Valchromat’s production is aimed at reducing, or even eliminating, environmental impact. All waste and bark resulting from the process is re-used to fuel the steam boiler.

Self-sufficiency on thermal energy
The plant generates enough biomass to sustain its thermal energy requirements, without burning any fossil fuels.
