Corinth Pipeworks uses operational excellence practices at a pilot level that cover a wide range of best energy efficiency applications:
Implementation of energy efficiency programs. The programs that were implemented, such as the replacement of the use of fossil fuels by electricity, the installation of LED luminaires, the transition to the ultra-high voltage network, etc. resulted in 2% energy savings in the production process. Improving our energy efficiency is an ongoing process that will continue for years to come.
Calculation and certification of carbon emissions. Calculation and certification by the independent body TUV Hellas of the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide emissions according to the standard ISO 14064-3: 2019 (GHG Scope I & II).
Electricity from RES. We aim to fully cover our needs for electricity directly from renewable sources, a commitment set by the company’s management. To this direction and until this option is available, we cover 100% of our electricity with the purchase of GOs (Guarantees of Origin).
Corinth Pipeworks is committed to act in a sustainable manner and to assist the transition to a low carbon, circular economy. We are launching actions to create a circular future by utilizing wastes or by-products and generate industrial value-added products. A successful initiative that has been undertaken in conjunction with our partners Wasco Energy Group and AEIFOROS S.A., is the use of Electric arc furnace (EAF) slag, in special concrete applications such as heavy concrete for the coating of pipes for offshore pipelines.
Utilization of steel mill slags in concrete coating for pipes. Circular economy in action
