Industrial water management system
Environmental concern is a constant at MVC. Most of the production equipment of the company's processing plant uses water as a cooling fluid, lubricant and as a means to remove the debris produced in the cutting and polishing process. All the water resulting from the process is conveyed to the industrial water treatment plant, where the solid particles in suspension are removed. The treated water is pumped back into the production circuit to be reused. The solid waste resulting from the treatment process is sent to an inactive quarry, where it is used as filling material for excavation voids for landscape recovery purposes.
