The preservation of the environment is a key concern for Eco-Oil, which is reflected in all the activities developed by the company, either in the design and project either in the daily operation of the unit.

The unit is equipped with a biological treatment that guarantees a reduced impact on the environment. The waste is processed cyclically until they reach the appropriate level to discharge into a sensitive medium – in this respect it is worth to mention the important community of existing bottlenose dolphins in the river Sado.
