As part of its commitment to safety and the environment, UANL carries out a permanent program to verify the performance and fulfillment of safety regulations at the university facilities that use natural or liquefied petroleum gas, according to the provisions of the NOM-002-SECRE-2010 and NOM-004-SEG-2004 standards on natural gas and LP gas, respectively. This allows to identify and fix different failures at such facilities.

 

Furthermore, UANL has conducted the verification of boiler-furnace carburizing and installed gas outlet regulators and controlled electricity meters in order to reduce natural gas consumption and risks when turning on gas-powered equipment, which enables the measurement of the power supply’s flow and pressure to target significant annual savings at the Ciudad Universitaria and Health Sciences campuses, reducing gas consumption per capita from 2011 to 2016.
