New facility for exhaust air treatment at BUTTING

BUTTING has always followed statutory regulations, official requirements and the guidelines of the DIN EN ISO 14001 and the guiding principles of its self-image in its investments into the areas of production. As such the expansion of the pickling basins in surface technology, made way to the special significance of environmental protection and with it, exhaust air treatment. Chemical pickling is, just as it always has been, the most common and best technique for making the surface of stainless steels resistant to corrosion. At BUTTING, tubing and shaped pieces are generally pickled to give them a clean, metallic surface after processing. For this production process, BUTTING has various pickling areas and baths at their facility in Knesebeck.

The new pickling basins were built in close proximity to the existing facilities. Presently, the investment team is planning the installation of a new facility for exhaust air treatment. The necessary alteration permits are being drawn up in consultation with the trade supervisory board according to the German Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG). After receiving official approval, these investments shall be implemented right away and the facility will be constructed by a specialized company in accordance with the regulations of the Water Resources Act.

Werner Peesel, BUTTING’s Environmental Management Representative, explains the objective: “By taking environmental aspects into consideration in the production and process engineering development processes, we are sustainably improving the environmental compatibility of our production.
