Today we're joining the World Environment Day, a day which has been promoted by the United Nations (UN) since 1973 with the goal of motivating and raising awareness among the populace so that we become active agents in sustainable development. It is now celebrated in 100 countries.

Faithful to our commitment to contribute to improving the health and well-being of people, animals and plants, we in Bioibérica are working on the research, development, production and sale of biomolecules in the most sustainable manner possible. So much so that since 1994 our company has been considered a pioneer in implementing environmental management processes.

One of the most important actions that we carry out is in the central plant in Palafolls (Barcelona) and we want to share it with you: we treat an average flow of 500,000 daily litres of waste waters which come from the production processes of our products with a water treatment plant that could clean the water for a town with 35,000 residents. In this video our colleague Jordi Cararach explains how we remove the oils, fats and dissolved solids in the water before being biologically treated, so that later the water can be reused internally.

Also, thanks to the daily work of a team of environmental experts which collects samples and oversees the entire process, we have managed to reduce the discharge parameters to three times below the legal limit.

Innovation and technology are crucial for humanity's evolution, but the environment continues to be our lungs.
