The quality in the management of Magnon Huelva, endorsed by the EMAS Declaration and the AENOR ISO 9001 standard

The Magnon energy complex in Huelva, the largest and most important of our energy generation from biomass, has renewed the recognition of the quality of its management through the ISO 9001 standard and the EMAS Declaration of the Spanish Association Standardization and Certification (AENOR).

The EMAS system (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) is the European eco-management and eco-audit scheme that recognizes those organizations that have implemented an environmental management system and have acquired a commitment to continuous improvement. On the other hand, ISO 9001 certification is the most widely used model to guarantee the quality of process management.

Thus, the results of the recent audit carried out by AENOR corroborate the effectiveness of the integrated quality and environmental management system for the continuous improvement of the company’s process and work methods.

At Magnon, the commitment to excellence in quality and environmental management of its processes is firm. In fact, the Huelva plant was the second company in Andalusia to voluntarily join the select European club of companies that annually submit their data to external verification and commit to publishing and making them available to the public.

The Huelva energy complex has had the Quality certification according to the international standard ISO 9001 since 1994, the Environment certification according to ISO 14001 since 1998 and, since 1999, it adheres voluntarily to the EMAS system. In addition, since last year, the sustainability of its biomass has been certified by the Sure scheme, anticipating the requirements of the Renewable Energy Directive (EU) 2018/2001 (REDII), a European regulation that establishes various criteria that must be met by all the biomass used in the bioenergy sector.

Magnon Huelva, with a capacity of 137 MW, is capable of generating more than 1,000 GWh per year, enough to cover the electrical needs of almost 800,000 people, a population equivalent to that of the city of Seville. Thanks to its activity, it creates more than 3,400 direct and indirect jobs throughout the province, in fields as diverse as industry, logistics and agriculture.
