slide22With the aim of reducing energy consumption levels and guaranteeing the highest level of ergonomics in the painting department, Geico can devise and put in place ventilation systems that can maximise the system’s efficiency whilst reducing levels of energy consumption.

The introduction of clean air, under the right temperature and humidity conditions, occurs in the zone in which operators are present and which requires the best air quality, which is gradually removed from these zones and used as recycling air in operator free zones and/or zones where the need for the quality of the ventilation air is not a as great.
The appropriately designed system makes it possible to guarantee an environment that has the correct ventilation in those zones where it is required and as a result drastically reduce the levels of energy consumption.

slideBecause Geico has always been very aware of the impact on the environment of paint plants, it is particularly committed to reducing the energy consumption of its own products and maximising the efficiency of their operation. As part of the completion of this work, aimed at reducing the production of CO2 and consequently the pollution of our planet, it has developed solutions that are capable of integrating or replacing traditional systems of energy production with renewable energy sources (solar thermal, photovoltaic, geothermal, wind power and biomass).

Solutions such as solar and photovoltaic power, geothermal heat pumps and Combined Heat Power (CHP) systems have been implemented at our Pardis Innovation Centre.

Among the many tools that Geico uses for identifying the best production mix, there is the new J-Power software, which appears among the tools in the Engineering section.
