On May 25, 26 and 27, the Aggregates Congress organized by the National Association of Aggregates Manufacturers (ANEFA) was held. This year, the event was located in Oviedo, specifically in the Palace of Exhibitions and Congresses, the work of the Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava.
Promsa won the second prize in the category of Good Operational Practices with Promsa Conecta, our digitization project made up of the Espai Client platform and the Digital Delivery Note: the first is a space where the client, via the web, has information 24/7 about their consumption, delivery notes, invoices and certificates, among others, and the second is a platform through which carriers receive the delivery note on a mobile device, thus eliminating paper on site.
We also obtained second place in the Circular Economy category for the Tecnosoles project in the La Falconera quarry. A proposal that provides added value to restorations, since it uses low-value materials from the extractive activity itself and waste, very well chosen through specific regulations that contain organic amendments. This activity helps to fix CO2 in the subsoil and accelerates the natural restoration process, also contributing to the reduction of waste in landfills thanks to their recovery.
Promsa also had a special role during the congress, with various interventions in round tables. Ramón Torrescasana, director of the aggregates and environment business, was present at the opening table of the congress, where the issue of biodiversity in mining operations was discussed.
Carlos Raich, general director of Promsa, participated in the round table of ANEFHOP (Spanish National Association of Ready-Mixed Concrete Manufacturers) in his role as president, explaining the great challenges facing the sector, especially in sustainability issues.
And finally Pilar López, responsible for the environment at Promsa, as president of the environment at ANEFHOP, made contributions to the debate on the route to follow to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete.
