Malasa 3R

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle

Grupo Malasa has started a transition through ecological solutions and initiatives, with the long-term goal of powering our factories with 100% renewable energy, as well as following zero-waste and circular economy values ​​and principles.

Renewable energy

Within our MALASA 3R initiative, we have taken important steps in recent years to transform our facilities into a benchmark with minimal environmental impact, including the installation of solar panels, and biomass boilers, and the recycling and reuse of raw materials and by-products derived from our activity.

Renewable energy

↓561 TM CO₂ with solar energy

↓561 TM C02 with

solar energy

In the year 2022, we have installed 3,367 solar panels between our HQ and main factories, the Fresno Metal and Fresno Cristal plants, and our logistics center.

This means that 23% of our manufacturing electricity consumption comes from 100% renewable solar energy. In doing so, we are avoiding emitting 561 MT CO₂ into the atmosphere, which is the same as planting 3,360 trees.

This project is part of the 1, 2 and 3 incentive program linked to self-consumption and storage in the service sector and other productive sectors, within the framework of the European Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, financed by the European Union – NextGenerationEU.

↓ 940.9 TM CO₂ with biomass energy

↓ 940.9 TM CO₂ with

biomass energy

Since the end of 2020, we have implemented a biomass boiler, which has allowed us to take advantage of 50% of the waste from our activity that was not recyclable and prevent it from ending up in a landfill.

This measure has increased our percentage of material reuse by more than 90%, has reduced our CO2 emissions by 369.9 MT CO₂ per year, and has allowed us to acclimatize our offices, as well as power our lacquering train and two lacquering booths with clean energy.

In 2023, we added a new boiler in our metal factory, Fresno Metal, which required an annual gas consumption equivalent to 3,032,572 kWh from the lacquering train. This biomass boiler will avoid emitting 571 MT CO₂, the equivalent of planting 3,420 trees, and will allow powering the lacquering train ovens from this waste.

This initiative has been possible thanks to the support of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Engineering of the School of Forestry Engineering of the University of Vigo and has been recognized and awarded by public institutions such as the Xunta de Galicia, the Agencia Instituto Enerxético de Galicia (INEGA), the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving (IDAE), the Ministry of Ecological Transition of the Government of Spain and the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union.
