The Dream of Building an infinitely Sustainable System!

On the Ecological Front Twintex has been implementing several measures to Protect Our Planet and Lower Emissions:

  • Usage of Natural Gas for the Boiler
  • Pre-Heating of the Water of the Boiler with Solar Panels
  • Recycling of Industrial Waste
  • Special roofing with major Thermal insulation
  • UV Ray Protection Films on windows to reduce air conditioning
  • Controlled tabs for Water savings
  • Eco-Friendly tube lighting
  • Limited Energy consumption machinery
  • Separation of office & human waste for recycling,
  • And more measures converging on the protection of our Planet.

Over the last 10 years, Twintex reduced around 60% of CO2 which leads us to get ISO 14001 Certification for Environmental Management System.
