with the environment
As a company pursuing sustainability and the reduction of resources usage, Mesa Ceramics has invested in a new digital-printing technology that’s out of traditional stoneware production models. Higher productivity with the same resources, less waste and the maximum potential use of the raw materials used are the three objectives of this new technology.
The introduction of new developments and production technologies, such as 3D tools and the eco-friendly digital printing ink, allow for low ink gas emissions minimizing the environmental impact of beautiful designs. It uses a very low quantity of ink per piece and does not contain substrates producing no waste.
The ecological footprint of each product is reduced by both the use of digital-printing technology and the single firing kiln, associated with all other smaller changes that make the difference each day.
