COMPLIANCE WITH STANDARDS AND RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
CIAT pursues an exemplary quality approach to developing sustainable and efficient systems which conform to the standards of today and anticipate those of tomorrow. We ensure that our developments conform to the various environmental directives and regulations and, as a real driving force in our sector, also participate in their implementation.
THE ENERGY-RELATED PRODUCTS (ERP) EUROPEAN DIRECTIVE
The European Directive 2009/125/CE ErP outlines the conditions and criteria relating to the eco-design of products that affect energy consumption throughout their life cycle, from manufacture, to use and until disposal at end of life. It encourages manufacturers to design products that improve energy efficiency while reducing their overall impact on the environment, in particular the resources consumed throughout their service life. All CIAT products included in our catalogue conform with the ErP directive.
ECO-DESIGN: RESULTS THAT EXCEED THE REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS OF TOMORROW, TODAY
At CIAT we strive to reduce the ecological impact of our equipment throughout its life cycle, from creation to final decommissioning. We confirm this strong environmental policy in our commitment to respecting ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications, and undertake: possible in the product design process; the results of the life cycle analyses (LCA) for products (complete system for heating, ventilation and cooling); equipment.
ENERGY GREENHOUSE EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT GAS EMISSIONS
SHARE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY
Since 1 January 2015, the measures to control emissions from fluorinated greenhouse gases have been strengthened and a number of far-reaching changes have been introduced with a view to cutting the EU’s F-Gas emissions by two-thirds by 2030 compared with 2014 levels. These directives have a direct impact on HVAC equipment and involve the implementation of appropriate solutions. Direct expansion systems are destined to disappear as technological choices increasingly turn to water-based solutions which confine small amounts of refrigerant to a limited part of the installation.
This approach benefits from an internationally recognised standard ISO 14062 “Environmental Management - integrating environmental aspects into product design and product development”.
