Recognition

Wastewater Treatment

 

We have two modern wastewater treatment plants with biological filters that reduce the environmental impact that our operations may have on the surrounding aquifer environment. These plants are monitored by trained water treatment personnel.


Through a network of local pig and chicken producers and recyclers, César Iglesias values the solid waste resulting from our food plant operations, contributing to the profitability of small producers and minimizing waste.

Environment


Cesar Iglesias in his continuous environmental protection has invested about 4MM $US, achieving sustainable operations in both industrial parks through:

  • Gas scrubbing systems installed in the sulfonic acid manufacturing plant.
  • Exhaust gas recovery systems of the powder detergent plant.
  • Effluent and wastewater treatment systems.

This commitment is assumed through the continuous training of our personnel in compliance with safety and environmental legislation, the implementation of a management system that seeks to prevent accidents and the continuous search for cleaner and safer processes.  

 
At César Iglesias we are focused on the processes and prevention of illicit activities, such as smuggling, drug trafficking, terrorism and robberies, effectively managing our risks, continuously improving and ensuring safe trade.
