ENVIROMENT

To protect the environment THONI-ALUTEC undertakes numerous actions to prevent or limit any emissions to the environment.
   Ground water protection
 Air protection
 Noise pollution
 Heating
 Recycling
 



Ground water protection

Industrial and sanitary wastewater or any surface rain water from the whole site is collected in a drainige system and fed to the local sewage plant for treatment . Industrial waste water is even sent through special filter units before it is discharged further to the drainage system..


Air protection

We have installed a vast number of air filtration systems to retain any impurities from extracted air and can be proud of an efficiency of up to 99,9%.The air volume extracted from the foundry alone is 650.000 cfm. To make this figure easier to understand, this means we remove a volume of approx.40 houses per minute !!! Due to this immense volume of warm air we take away from the work area ,we have installed heat exchangers where most of this air is processed. By this means, all the fresh air which is pulled back into the building is pre-heated by the waste air going out. Needless to say that we have an immense saving on energy doing so and have made another step towards environmental protection by reducing our energy usage.


Noise pollution

A effort was put into research and trials to find the right way to reduce noise levels in different areas inside and outside the plant. Acoustic panels and cabins were used to stop the noise from spreading and accumulating. Regular measurements executed by local authorities which are based on European legislation, confirm that noise emitted inside and outside the buildings is well within the permitted limits according to European guidelines.



Heating

As we use a lot of energy in our processes we have installed recuperators in the several places to regain heat which is usually lost into the atmosphere. Through this system we heat our complete administration block and social buildings including warm water without any extra use of energy.



Recycling

Being in the aluminium industry , Recycling is a philosophy for us. We practice it where ever possible around the plant. Our current level of recycling moulding sand is as high as 98,9 %.To reach this level it required a lot of engineering, investment, trained and disciplined workforce.
A level of 100% is reached when it comes to recycling the aluminium swarf and coolant from our CNC machining department. The swarf is pressed into briquettes and sent to a local smelting plant. The coolant recovered from the swarf during the pressing process is put back into the CNC machines. These actions are only examples of recycling which is in place and we are constantly examining new technologies and possibilities to expand our enviromental recycling program.
