- SEAT has reduced its environmental impact by 34% since 2010 and aims to achieve 50% by 2025
- Pavement that reduces pollution, efficient chimneys or the largest solar plant of Europe's automotive industry are just some of the projects
- Reducing polluting emission and waste even more is on the horizon thanks to the circular economy
The fight against climate change is a global movement with contributions also being made by car factories. For example, SEAT has reduced the environmental impact of its Martorell factory by 34% since 2010. On occasion of World Environment Day, we take a look at the company's major initiatives to look after the planet.
Earth: pollution-reducing pavement. The pavement at the SEAT Technical Centre reduces pollution. It is called photocatalytic pavement, and it is made with cement slabs applied with titanium dioxide. The curious property of this element is that when it comes into contact with pollutants, light and oxygen at the same time, it triggers a chemical reaction that decomposes the pollutants in the air, turning them into nitrates that dissolve with water. So, it decontaminates, cleans itself and has a bactericidal effect.
