SUSTAINABILITY

Conscientiously sustainable

Conscientiously sustainable

At FAVEKER® we strive to guarantee the sustainability and circularity of our building solutions, their components and the production process. Our building envelopes stand out for their efficiency and sustainability, since their components are fully recyclable and they are made up of at least 48% recycled content. Our EPD, certified by AENOR, has been dually recognized by Global EPD and ECOPLatform; our environmental management system is certified as complying with the ISO 14001 standard; and our production plant has been awarded a zero-waste rating.

The Faveker® plant in Alcorisa (Teruel) has control equipment that rejects defective products prior to firing in order to reduce the energy expense and generation of waste involved with processing products that do not comply with the quality standards required for sale on the market.

We recycle 100% of the process wastewater generated in the production process without the need for any physical or chemical treatments, thus achieving zero discharge of process wastewater.

Recyclable and recycled

Sustainable materials, 100% recyclable and with at least 48% of recycled content. We promote circular economies.

Refurbishment

We offer heights and lengths for standard pieces that are suitable to modulate refurbishments, improving the external look and the energy performance of the buildings.

Respect for the environment

The recyclable nature, the recycled content, the reduction of emissions thanks to the energy-demand lowering, make our materials be environmentally friendly.

Reduction of consumption and emissions

The increase of insulation that it gives to the systems allows an important primary energy saving for the building.

Reduction of pathogens

Thanks to the Bioklinker® treatment, antipathogen properties are added to FAVEKER® ventilated façades, helping to sanitize the place.

Resistance

Porcelain tiles manufactured by extrusion with spans between supports of at least 1500 mm.
