China – Reducing the Environmental Impact of Transportation
The Chinese site in Wuhu has focused sustainable development initiatives on the reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions linked to the transportation of calcium carbonate. After researching the possible solutions, they found out that water transportation was the most efficient solution, which led to investment on barges. The results speak for themselves: the initiative has decreased energy consumed and CO2 emissions by a third.
