The fight against: CLIMATE CHANGE
at the center of TUBACEX's strategy
TUBACEX considers fighting climate change a priority strategy, as one
of the major challenges faced by
society and therefore, by all
public and private players.
It is worth highlighting all products manufactured and marketed by TUBACEX are 100% recyclable, returning to the life cycle to enter the new steel production process again. Prioritizing the use of stainless steel over any other type of material prevents using other components which can be harmful for the environment, such as corrosion inhibitors, fluids, etc. Furthermore, stainless steel resistance and durability result in extended useful life, avoiding replacements leading to new manufacturing cycles.
In addition, TUBACEX is also making every effort to develop advanced materials capable of significantly improving energy efficiency and thus, reducing CO2 emissions. A good example of this is our position as a supplier of large high nickel alloy tubes and pipework for Ultra Super Critical (USC) and Advanced Ultra Super-Critical (AUSC) energy plants.
Developing advanced materials able to significantly improve energy efficiency
This type of material allows steam temperatures to reach 700 ºC which in turn achieves improved equipment performance and a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. In addition to this, TUBACOAT, a unique application on the market consisting of ceramic coatings, is capable of operating in the most demanding environments while maintaining its properties intact; which results in longer maintenance cycles.
Promoting a strategy for diversification towards more efficient sectors
Besides our efforts to develop new products, TUBACEX has been promoting its diversification strategy in recent years. As a result, the company has reinforced its presence in the gas sector, which represents 41% of the Group sales, becoming a competitive alternative in the decarbonized energy system context. It also continues to make progress towards an energy transition model, actively searching for new lines of work with research bodies.
Finally, it is worth highlighting actions taken by TUBACEX in the field of production efficiency, with cleaner technology progressively replacing conventional manufacturing equipment.
Cleaner technology at industrial plants
Energy transition and the search for solutions to minimize the environmental impact caused by companies has become one of the priority challenges now. TUBACEX ratifies its firm commitment to continue promoting plans and strategies which will contribute to the global fight against climate change.
