The application of research
FATRO carries out pharmaceutical and biological research in the veterinary field directly in its own facilities, including:
• CLINICAL AND PHARMACOTOXICOLOGY TESTING
• PHARMACEUTICAL TECHNOLOGY
• CHEMICAL SYNTHESIS
• RESIDUE DETERMINATION
FATRO invests a large part of its capital in research and development to obtain and market innovative, high-quality products; its laboratories and user establishment facilities for animals operate with the Good Laboratory Practice certification (GLP).
Research and manufacture, safeguarding the environment
FATRO has developed an internal Environmental Management System in its plants, and has achieved the ISO 14001 Environmental Certification.
FATRO has installed a cogeneration plant in its Ozzano Emilia (Bologna) facilities, which fully meets the energy requirements of the plant, thus significantly reducing the production of greenhouse gases caused by the use of fossil fuels in the manufacturing processes.
The photovoltaic systems installed at the FATRO plants produce an annual saving of 140 tons of CO2 released into the atmosphere.
The FATRO Group plans to progressively reduce the plastics used.
RECYCLED OR CERTIFIED PAPER
The commitment of the FATRO Group with regard to the environment takes concrete form in the “Trees from paper” project, which uses recycled or certified paper for the packaging of its products.
