Cepsa’s San Roque Energy Park has inaugurated its new wastewater reuse plant as part of its sustainable commitment to the optimisation of water management, the reduction of its use at source and its maximum reuse.
The new plant enables a 25% reduction in water use, which allows a total 53% saving when added to other optimisation and efficiency measures undertaken in the last three years.
The event was attended by the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Blue Economy of the Junta de Andalucía, Ramón Fernández-Pacheco, in addition to the general secretary of the area María del Mar Plaza Yélamos; the territorial representative of the branch Óscar Curtido; and the subdelegate of the Junta de Andalucía in the Campo de Gibraltar Javier Rodríguez Ros.
The Deputy Mayor María Collado and the councillors of Environment and Urbanism, Juan Serván and Alfonso Valdivia, respectively, participated on behalf of the San Roque City Council.
The Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Blue Economy, Ramón Fernández-Pacheco, emphasized on Wednesday that Cepa's new water treatment and reuse plant is "an example of circular economy and another commitment by the company to environmental protection."
During the opening ceremony of the new water treatment plant and the visit to the San Roque Energy Park facilities, the Minister of Sustainability noted that "these facilities are another step in Andalusian industry's adaptation to climate change."
He highlighted how the industrial center measures its carbon footprint and works to reduce it.
"So once again it is shown that it is possible to apply the circular economy and environmental sustainability to the business reality of Andalusia," he added.
The wastewater reuse plant is part of Cepsa's commitment to the circular economy and the measures taken as part of the BRIO innovation program (internal management program on operational excellence), which identifies water-saving measures and other efficiency measures in the industrial facilities of its energy parks.
The water treated at this plant will be adequate for reuse in the power plant’s cooling towers and entailed an initial investment of 2.5 million euros.
