Description

The IASO Group continuously aspires to monitor the air emissions of its facilities, ultimately aiming to reduce them, thus contributing to a decrease in air pollution and the further prevention of the greenhouse effect.

The Group facilities are equipped with boilers, steam generators and absorption chillers which run on natural gas for generating hot water, and heating and cooling its areas. As a fuel, natural gas is environmentally friendly, so air emissions are reduced compared to other fuel, which, in turn, decreases the environmental impact from air emissions. Regular preventive maintenance of all facilities is carried out and certified by licensed technicians, aiming at the excellent, safe and more efficient operation of the facilities.
