Vecor Blog: Our Vision
Our vision is a world where sustainability is a core consideration of any economic activity
At Vecor, we are firm believers that sustainability should be one of the most important considerations for businesses in any industry today. We also believe, however, that for all industries to embrace sustainable business models, there must be more to gain than just a ‘feel-good factor.’ Instead, we have a vision of a world where something different is true: applying sustainability to the core of decision making will future-proof companies, make them more attractive to the market and contribute to the health of our planet.
Sustainability: not always so desirable
In the past, sustainability didn’t always have a great reputation. Industrial and energy sectors particularly found that implementing the processes that mitigated their environmental impact or embracing more eco-friendly ways of doing business came at the expense of their profits, requiring significant investment for little or no financial gain. As a result, many businesses found that persuading customers to purchase sustainable products resulted in reduced competitiveness.
The tide is turning, however, and attitudes, enthusiasm and understanding of the numerous benefits sustainability can bring a business in the long-term is growing rapidly. Today, corporations, governments and industries in all corners of the world are keen to implement sustainable business models, processes and technologies.
Is sustainability just about the feel-good factor or can it help boost revenue?
the transition towards sustainability has been the driving force behind firms like Vecor who don’t think that building a sustainable business has to come at the expense of profits. Vecor’s green technology can diversify revenue sources for power stations fueled by coal, at the same time as safely eliminating a solid waste stream that is otherwise destined for landfill.
To us, it’s the ultimate win-win situation: implementing green technology that recycles a solid waste product and at the same time reducing the raw material requirements of another industry while building the foundations for new income and creating new jobs. We’re incredibly proud of our technology that provides an all-in-one solution for coal ash waste that simultaneously benefits the planet, society and the economy.
Let us tell you more about what Vecor does
Vecor’s Systema LeonardoTM is a patented solution that can provide a way for thermal power stations to convert their fly ash (a by-product that is generated by burning coal in power stations for electricity generation) into high-end building materials.
Vecor’s technology can help these power stations to safely eliminate fly ash waste by using it to create sunning, contemporary and sought-after building materials, such as top-quality porcelain ceramic tiles. At the same time, our process substantially reduces the water, raw material and energy usage of an industry that uses approximately 270 million tons of virgin mined raw materials and 195 billion liters of water per annum
