We transform recycled paper into innovative and efficient corrugated cardboard packaging solutions.
We offer flexible packaging solutions which are environmentally-friendly such as: Saica Monoflex or Saica GreentHeart
We work towards the “Vertido Zero” goal by providing environmental services to manage waste for transformation into secondary raw materials, fostering the use of renewable energies and implementing all-new technological solutions.
At Saica Paper, we recycle 3 million tonnes of paper and cardboard.
The use of non-hazardous waste generated in the paper production process as a fuel was a step forward in our Circular Economy model and towards the achievement of our Zero Waste goal.
More than 480,000 tonnes of waste a year are used as fuel in our valorization plants, which prevents this waste from being sent to a tip and the consumption of fossil fuels to obtain the electricity and steam used in our processes. See vídeo.
The new biomass energy valorisation plant in Venizel, which will begin operating in 2018, will provide the necessary steam for our production process and replace the use of fossil fuels with the use of biomass waste from the nearby wood transformation industry and reject material from the paper production process that is currently being sent to a tip.
The use of biomass as a fuel will prevent the emission of 45,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases a year.
Our commitment to the Circular Economy is expressed transparently with communications available through various platforms and initiatives as well as with the publication of the Sustainability Report.
In order to carry out our circular business strategy, we defined some future commitments in relation to the main environmental vectors affected by our activities:
We actively collaborate with several universities and intermediate and higher education centres. We are committed to developing the communities in which we operate and their job market talent.
In collaboration with Universidad de Zaragoza , we created the “Saica Sustainable Solutiosn Chair” in 2013, to encourage research projects in the field of energy sustainability and its application to the industrial sector. This chair has been granting an award each year since 2015, to recognize students who show high motivation for working in energy sustainability and its application to the industrial sector.
In collaboration with the ELISAVA School in Barcelona, we gave students of the Design and Industrial Design Engineering degree programmes the opportunity in 2015 to suggest new packaging designs for different products, aimed at e- commerce clients. The students offered their extremely fresh designs, creativity and innovation.
