By using solvent distillation systems, we can save a large proportion of solvents in manufacturing our products and reduce water pollution. In addition, such systems also significantly reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and reduce our CO2 footprint.
We use a distillery plant for solvents at our Köniz manufacturing site, which has enabled us to reduce the consumption of solvents by around 70%.
The plant's distillation apparatus permits the recovery and reuse of solvents used for cleaning and degreasing in our paint shop. By applying the simple principle of distillation, contaminants (resins, pigments, paints, inks, oils, etc.) can be separated from the solvent, which is collected in a container for subsequent reuse. This distillation process can be repeated any number of times.
