Respect for the environment


Working to protect the environment, our employees and our customers
Protecting the environment is the number one priority in terms of our corporate responsibilities, and is a commitment that goes hand-in-hand with the safeguarding of our employees and customers. To ensure respect for these priorities, we have worked hard to achieve full compliance with the most recent provisions of RoHS – the EU’s Directive on the Restriction of Hazardous Substances.
Tutela ambientale
Protecting the environment, safeguarding people
We are convinced that the health and safety of our personnel and of those who live in our local communities are inextricably linked to the matter of environmental protection.
We do our level best to reduce the amount of waste we produce and send to landfill, monitoring every phase of our production processes. We work constantly to lower the amount of scrap generated during manufacturing and to maximise the recycling of materials.
We regularly check our emission levels, ensuring compliance with the legal limits and working to reduce the quantity being generated. We do so through the deployment of advanced systems for the filtering and reduction of pollutants being emitted into the atmosphere.
We continuously monitor the raw materials that we use and the associated suppliers, carrying out periodic checks on the finished products.
Normativa RoHS 2
Compliance with the RoHS 3 Directive

The European Directive 2011/65/EU (Restriction of Hazardous Substances - RoHS) has been update by Directive EU 2015/863 (RoHS 3).

Technical Ceramic guarantees the compliance of its products with RoHS 3. The directive sets out regulations to restrict the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) with a view to contributing to the protection of human life and the environment. To this end, the measures adopted include the recovery and eco-friendly disposal of EEE waste. On the basis of the certifications of our suppliers, we can confirm that all of the ceramic products we make and sell comply with the limits on the maximum concentration (expressed as a percentage of the weight of the material) of the hazardous substances referred to in Appendix II of 2011/65/EU and EU 2015/138 directive.
