PROGETTO KISSMUGELLO - Airbank e Yamaha


One of greatest successes of the collaboration between Airbank and Yamaha Motor Racing is the "KissMugello" project.
At its fifth edition, KiSS Mugello (Keep It Shiny and Sustainable) is the environmental and social sustainability program of the Italian Motorcycle Grand Prix. The program intends to raise awareness of the importance of adopting sustainable behaviors in major sports events, leveraging the passion for motorcycling to make passion for sustainability grow.
The objective of the program is to reduce the environmental impact of the event, with initiatives such as separate waste collection (with the distribution of 20,000 kits with bags and information sheets) and recycling, according to the principles of circular economy; collection of exhausted batteries, spent fuel oils and used lubricating oils; free drinking water for the public; a communication plan to encourage spectators to sustainable mobility.

GENERAL ELECTRIC

Sustainable management of wind farms is one of the main points Airbank has decided to pay particular attention to. Thanks to the precious collaboration of GE Renewable Energy, Airbank has carried out a lot of work analysing ordinary maintenance and major emergencies occurred in small, medium and large wind farms. At the same time, the goals expressed by the Wind Service companies were considered: minimizing environmental impact and managing generated waste.

From the field analysis it has been found that in the ordinary maintenance phase the main activities are: the greasing of rotating parts, the oil filter change of gearbox, bolts tightening, the oil and liquid change of the converter.
Airbank, has studied a kit for the ordinary maintenance of a wind farm, consisting of specific absorbent wipes, absorbent sausages, degreasing detergents for oils and special P.P.E., in order to ensure maximum safety to operators. With regard to minimizing environmental impact, each kit is equipped with special bags for waste management.

From the analysis of the incidents in the wind farms around the world, taking into consideration the equipment already in use in the air generators of major manufacturers, Airbank has provided a practical emergency kit consisting of products for the containment and absorption of hazardous oils and liquids.

Finally, from the analysis of the storage places of the material used during ordinary maintenance, Airbank has developed a complete solution with: mineral oils and liquid lubricants barrels with collecting tank, safety lockers for chemical products, containers for used batteries and fluorescent tubes, containers for oil and air filters collection, storage points for waste oil, collection containers for toxic or flammable waste (to be separated from other waste due to their hazard), and finally containers for materials contaminated by dangerous substances and containers for materials contaminated by polluting but not dangerous substances.

Airbank has thus added a new element to the sustainability of wind farms.
