Helexia Belgium is proud to announce that they have built and financed a photovoltaic power plant on the roofs of our slaugterhouse, with a capacity of 1,17 kWp. Since juin 2018, Helexia installed nearly 3 591 solar panels providing green energy on our site (using solar panels of type LG Electronics with 325 Wp power and a Huawei Technologies inverter). Yet in 2017, another power plant was launched on our company site, on the roof of our FOODMET. The company Green-Invest installed another 930 solar pannels with a total power of 312 kWp. We arrive nowadays at a total of 4.500 solar pannels operating on our site, which places Abattoir amongst one of the most important power plants for green energy in the Brussels Region. In 2019, approximately 20% of the electric consumption by ABATTOIR SA has been produced by those two power plants.
On 1st September 2018, the Brussels Capital Region took a second step in reducing the use of plastic bags. Stocks could be liquidated till January 2019, so this is now drawing to an end! In view of this, Abattoir is asking all its traders to abide by the new legislation. This means that only plastic bags of more than 50 micron will be tolerated. Till february 2020, biobased bags will be allowed for goods such as fruit, vegetables and liquid/moist products (on the condition that the bags contain a minimum of 40% of biobased substance)...
