Other Atmospheric Emissions

Our industrial processes generate different atmospheric emissions, which can adversely affect the environment and people. For this reason, we focus on measuring the atmospheric emissions produced by our operations, comply with the regulations applied to each of our plants, and have abatement systems. At the same time, we are transparent about our most relevant emissions, such as Particulate Matter (PM), Nitrous Oxide (NOx), and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2).

There is a green tax on emissions from fixed sources, which is part of the regulations established in Chile’s tax reform in 2014 and began to be applied in 2017. The above establishes a charge to organizations that emit Particulate Matter (PM), Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) into the air, produced by operations of companies with boilers or turbines from 50 MWt.
