A permanent, collective commitment.
Urufarma is aware of the responsibility by any company and individual with the Environment. Sustainability is our way to do business and this means to satisfy everyday needs without affecting the opportunities of future generations.
Urufarma has been historically committed to protecting the Environment and this can be traced to the company's origins. Our staff is trained to understand the processes and the impact of our activities, which guarantees responsable management through proper technology use.
Urufarma is committed to a correct use and care of water. Whereas both plants have a wastewater treatment system, the plant of Hormonal products has a system of activated sludge and and the plant of non-hazardous products has a chemical oxidation system. Such treatment processes guarantee the quality of our wastewater.
Urufarma constantly conducts exhaustive analysis of solid waste treatment, so as to be aligned with the most environmentally efficient procedures. Thus, by a thoroughly waste classification, each area achieves a 40% recycling rate, thanks to a management plan based on the 3R premisses: Reducing, Reutilizing & Recycling.
Due to this continuous improvement of waste recycling, Urufarma has been awarded the Sello Canario, an acknowledgement from the Canelones Municipality to companies that embrace social responsibility.
The new industrial plant has an innovative air filtering system which guarantees pharmaceutical-quality air for manufacturing products and releases unpolluted air to the environment.
