Alhambra has a strong commitment to environment care.
It is not a matter of image but a need for survival as our main raw material is wood and our future depends on the sustainability of the world's resources.
The wood is purchased from companies officially recognized in their countries to work with national reforestation programs. Depending on the origin of the woods every supplier abides by set rules. For instance, our Indian Rosewood is obtained through public government auctions and the trunks are then cut up at source. Another example is our Ebony supplier who must contribute annually a percentage of his turnover to the government who then allocates it for reforestation.
We always try to take full advantage of the options available for the maximum usage of the wood we buy. For that reason, our policy is present in several points:
Regulations in these countries insist that the wood is cut to specification before it is exported thus ensuring the country's own promotion and development.
As we have a wide range of models, this makes possible to classify the woods in accordance with their qualities.
The company has its own water-treatment plant, which guarantees the total and proper waste disposal after the varnishing process.
A vacuum system recovers the wood waste and turns it into briquettes. The manufacturing of briquettes is a by-product. This is where the surplus wood and dust is condensed into cylindrical pieces and is often used by bakers for their ovens or in Alhambra's case as a form of central heating during the winter.
The risk materials, such as glue and varnish remains, are treated by specialized companies in authorized treatment plants.
Solar energy, also known as photovoltaic energy, is a source of electrical energy; which, is characterized by being of renewable origin, since it uses as a resource the radiation emitted by the sun, to transform it into electricity. All this, by means of photovoltaic installations; systems that are composed of equipment such as solar panels, batteries, among others.
That is why, from Manufacturas Alhambra, S.L., we wanted to cooperate with the welfare of our planet and offer the best musical service together with the respect and care for nature.
In summary, these are the main characteristics of the environmental impact of solar energy:
It decreases atmospheric pollution
Conventional electrical energy is obtained through the burning of fossil fuels, as well as through nuclear reactions. All these processes cause various types of pollution, including atmospheric pollution. That is why, at the moment of using solar energy, air pollution is greatly reduced.
As a result, up to 20,000 tons of greenhouse gases are avoided for each household supplied with solar energy. As a consequence, the quality of the air we breathe is also improved.
Decreases the use of fuels
As has already been mentioned, solar energy does not require the use of fuels of any kind, since it uses a technological system that transforms solar radiation into electricity. Therefore, by resorting to this type of system, the use of fuels is reduced. Best of all, the resources required are totally free, clean and renewable.
Reduces the destruction of ecosystems
Another benefit of solar energy for the environment is that, by resorting to this type of energy, the destruction of ecosystems is reduced. This is due to the fact that, if there is less demand for conventional electric energy, the construction of refineries or nuclear plants is reduced, thus avoiding the felling of trees and the destruction of ecosystems.
Another benefit of solar energy is that it also reduces water pollution associated with fossil fuels.
Helps combat global warming
As a consequence of the reduction of greenhouse gases, solar energy directly and indirectly influences the reduction of global warming. Best of all, photovoltaic cell systems require the high temperatures emitted by the sun to power themselves and transform this energy into electricity.
No noise pollution
Another way in which solar energy benefits the environment is by reducing noise pollution, which is quite frequent in other types of energy, due to all the processes required for these. Therefore, when using solar energy in isolated houses or other places, this advantage can be extremely useful.
