Eco friendly galvanizing respect for the environment
The galvanization procedure is eco friendly. Galvanizing, unlike other coating techniques and substances, guarantees a minimal environmental impact and maintenance care for the artifacts. It, as explained earlier, makes use of two metals, zinc (the 27th most available ore in the planet) and steel, which has a reuse percentage of 87% in Europe.
Galvanizing is a sustainable process from the very beginning and at every stage, considering that during the whole process there is no real raw materials loss. Even ash residues get usually recovered and reused by the company. Mattes get processed and used as “noble” additives for the Rubber, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics, Electronic Components and Tyre manufacturing industries. Such eco friendly recycling practices allow to achieve higher industrial efficiency while guaranteeing some environmental care.
Further regard for nature is guaranteed by Gimeco srl thanks to our choice of producing the lowest ecological footprint possible, by devising a sustainable residual heat recovery system from combustion fumes and cooling tanks. Another eco friendly practice concerns the design of pickling departments encased in special tunnels equipped with efficient abatement installations.
