Staying faithful for image of the environmentally friendly company, the DCR Board decided in mid-2016 to change the technology used at the paint shop at our plant in Wola Krzysztoporska. One of the segments of activity of Drum Clean Recycling Sp. z o.o. is the recycling of steel drums.
This is a multi-stage process involving the regeneration of the bottom and the drum’s side, quality control and the application of a new paint coating in the color preferred by the customer.
A large amount of remanufactured drums results in significant consuming paints.
The new paint coating is now made in the technology used by the manufacturers of new drums
Previously used paints were the cause of VOC emissions, which, although consistent with the emission decision, in the opinion of the Management Board was incompatible with the ecological goals of our organization. New ecological paints are much more environmentally friendly and thus better fit into our long-term strategy.
However, they require a high drying / baking temperature up to 220 degrees Celsius. Therefore, implementing the project of technology changing we have purchased a professional two-zone drying line with a cooling tunnel.
A step in this direction in addition to expressing concern for the environment will allow us to offer our customers the highest quality product.
