BAILAC each day is focused on improving the environmental management, conducting an ongoing review of alternatives to optimize the efficiency in the use of energetic supplies, maintenance, repair and retreading of tires, environmental monitoring and projects that help improve the safety and quality of life of the people who work there.
We contribute to sustainable development in the sites where we operate, by controlling inflation pressure of the off-road tires.
Underinflated tires generate more resistance when the vehicle is moving, so power consumption increases between 18 and 26% and therefore a greater use of fossil fuels and as a result higher CO2 emissions. The low tire pressure generates higher fuel bills.
It is estimated that a vehicle with lower tire pressure than required can spend more than 3% in fuel consumption.
These would be hundreds of gallons of fuel burned by low tire pressure, which accentuate the problems of environmental pollution from the burning of fossil fuels to the environment.
SUSTAINABILITY, MINING AND ENVIRONMENT
ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING SYSTEM
Dust a side Chile provides a monitoring system of particulate material that provides daily information about the performance, with fixed and mobile capture stations. This allows periodic monitoring for better dust control management in mining sites.
Technically, the utilized equipment allows monitoring particulate material of PM10, PM2.5 and PM1, which through a laser diffraction system, are characterized and reported. Professionally, the reports prepared by environmental engineers are specialized in this field.
