37. Rods with a diameter between 25.4 and 220 mm, for conversion to sqm the average diameter is considered to be 26 mm. Castings and forgings are excluded.
38. Sheets with thickness between 30 and 220 mm. For the calculation, 0.00457 m2/kg is considered, according to the company's SAP data. Excluding forgings, profiles and tubes.
39. Sheets with thickness between 20 and 101.6 mm. For the conversion from m2 to kg, the average dimension is 20x1500x3000 mm, 418 kg.
40. Rods with diameter between 12.7 and 150 mm. For the conversion, the average bar is considered to be 75x75 mm, weight 46 kg. Castings and forgings are excluded.

In 2022, Aciturri made further progress in the initiatives implemented to improve efficiency in the consumption of resources and materials:

  • Implementation of returnable packaging systems for transport between facilities and with the customer.
  • Reuse of containers and packaging in the production plants, establishing a circular cycle for the return of bags from production guidelines, caps for parts, etc.

In 2022, Aciturri has moved forward with the initiatives implemented to improve efficiency in the consumption of resources and materials.
