Raisio's environmental protection work is continuous improvement. Primary aim of our long-term and systematic environmental work is to improve and enhance the quality of operations and to minimise emissions
Investments in environmental protection
At Raisio's sites in Finland, investments in environment, health and safety totalled approximately EUR 0.5 million. 70% of investments were targeted at the improvement of process and work safety and some 30% at the development of material efficiency and waste management.
The measures included, for example, maintenance decks, lock gates of silos, central cleaning system, load steering. With the changes carried out, both safety and material efficiency improved. Energy saving was sought through the renewals of an air compressor and lighting.
Operating costs of environmental protection totalled some EUR 0.4 million in Finland.
In 2014, Raisio Group avoided serious environmental damages.
In August, an external fire risk occurred at the Ylivieska feed factory when a fire broke out in the wood loading area next to the factory. The fire was extinguished partly through the factory yard using the factory's fire-protection water-supply system. The incident did not harm the feed production.
