We continue working to improve water quality to minimize our environmental footprint.
Water is essential in the pulp and paper industry, which is why at Lecta we prioritize the efficient use of this valuable natural resource. Our mills have a high rate of water recycling, and the amount discharged is almost equal to the intake.
Even though our outlet water is within regulated legal limits, we continue to work on improving water quality to reduce our environment footprint even further and constantly monitor waste disposal. In addition, in our mills there are also closed water systems, in which water is reused repeatedly.
Lecta is ambitious in continuing to anticipate and carefully manage our water usage and consumption through increasingly efficient processes and water management strategies.
The new wastewater treatment plant at our Zaragoza, Spain, mill is a recent example of a project aimed at efficiency to minimize our environmental footprint and to better integrate with the surrounding region.
