Mercajucar is socially committed.
We want to reduce our impact on the environment as much as possible is one of the objectives always present in MERCAJUCAR.
Thanks to almost 1000 solar panels with a total output of 225 kW, we reduce our emissions of CO2 to the atmosphere around 225 tonnes.
In addition to the clean energy obtained through the solar panels on top of the cover, we must add the energy savings produced through the “Heliotube” which has a peak thermal power of 1000 kW that helps to heat the water for our plant.
This way, the consumption of diesel fuel is partly covered.
MERCAJUCAR is one of the most efficient agricultural productions for each cubic meter of water used, also economically and in terms of employment generation.
This efficiency is linked to a constant optimization of our processes production and technological improvement of our equipment.
Some information about the use of water in our company:
– We generate 10 jobs for every 1000 m3 of water consumed
– For every m3 of water consumed we produce on average about 350 kg of mushrooms.
– For each m3 of water consumed we charge around 600 euros.
