Consumo de Agua

Railway operations require water for different uses (toilets, cleaning, etc). Given that this is a scarce commodity, consumption management techniques are applied thus giving rise to a better and more efficient use of water at our facilities.

Paper consumption

  • All business activities require the use of paper, to a greater or lesser extent, thus this use needs to be controlled in order to make better use of our natural resources.
  • Through technological innovation plans and more use of information technology we try to restrict the use of paper as much as possible. Por otra parte, todo el papel consumido en el Núcleo de Cercanías de Asturias procede del reciclaje.
  • En el 2014 el consumo de papel ha sido de 0,009 gramos por viajero transportado y kilómetro recorrido.

Consumo de Energía de Tracción

  • Trains are the most efficient method of transport in energy efficiency terms: A passenger using the train consumes between 3 and 10 times fewer equivalent petrol litres per km than a passenger travelling by car, and 20 times fewer than a passenger travelling by plane.
  • Our trains are equipped with systems of energy efficiency in traction, such as the regenerative electric braking systems, which permit trains to return part of the energy used in braking to the network for use by other trains circulating nearby. Progress is also made in designing and building trains that are increasingly efficient in terms of energy.
  • El consumo anual estimado de energía de tracción en el año 2014 ha sido el siguiente:
    • Line C-1: 0.2054 kWh per passenger transported and kilometre travelled.
    • Line C-2: 0.23049 kWh per passenger transported and kilometre travelled.
    • Line C-3: 0.26717 kWh per passenger transported and kilometre travelled.
