Green energy

Can energy be eco-friendly? ASTON produces people friendly and eco-friendly energy by using energy-saving technologies and fuel from renewable sources.

The environmental friendliness is the main direction in the development of the company. ASTON invests considerable resources into the development of technology that decrease the negative effects of production activities on the environment. In order to prevent further climate changes, the company has implemented the mechanisms of the Kyoto Protocol in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

ASTON uses renewable organic fuel for example sunflower pellets and other biological resource to produce heat and electric power. The ASTON’s factories are the first in Russia to use such system of energy. The capacity of each electric station is about 50 tons of processing steam and 6mW of electric energy per one hour can fully meet the demands of its plants in Millerovo and Morozovsk. Using this high effective system we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by some 200,000 tons a year.
