Water is essential in the pulp and paper industry, which is why at Lecta they prioritize the efficient use of this valuable natural resource. Its mills have a high rate of water recycling and the amount discharged is almost equal to the intake.
Even though its outlet water is within regulated legal limits, they continue to work on improving water quality to reduce the environment footprint even further and constantly monitor waste disposal. In addition, in its mills there are also closed water systems, in which water is reused repeatedly. Lecta is ambitious in continuing to anticipate and carefully manage its water usage and consumption through increasingly efficient processes and water management strategies.
The new wastewater treatment plant at Zaragoza (Spain) mill is a recent example of a project aimed at efficiency to minimize the environmental footprint and to better integrate with the surrounding region.
