CHT Germany Dußlingen plant: ground-breaking ceremony for new container cleaning and recycling plant

CHT Germany is successfully on its way to a sustainably acting chemical company. With a corporate strategy consistently geared towards sustainability and a clearly defined path towards climate neutrality, CHT is approaching this goal step by step.

An important milestone on the way is resource-optimized production and the use of the latest technologies to save as many resources as possible. The comprehensive analysis of processes has led CHT to raise container management to a sustainable level and increase the use of reusable packaging.

The company keeps the necessary packaging directly in circulation and reduce the overall amount of needed material. The energy required to clean and reuse existing packaging is less than that needed to recycle and produce new containers.

CHT is saving on raw materials by building a resource-efficient new container washing system and recycling the residual materials and waste that still accumulate. With the new system, CHT is increasing the reuse of existing containers and can significantly reduce the procurement of new packaging (drums and IBCs). By cleaning on site, CHT saves on transportation and thus further resources. With the investment of almost 5 million Euros at the Dußlingen site, CHT is making a significant contribution to improving its carbon footprint.

It goes without saying that the new state-of-the-art plant will be operated with maximum resource efficiency using heat from the renewable local heating network. The water circulates and comes from rainwater and the roof is used to generate renewable electricity. The PV system is dimensioned to its maximum size so that it generates more electricity than the container washing system below it needs.

At an official ground-breaking ceremony, representatives of public administration were able to see the construction project for themselves.
