Protecting the soil, air and water is a factor in the company’s guiding principles. Manifold statutes and orders require hazards and risks to the environment to be minimised during operation of the plants and even at the planning and construction stage. For this reason the regulations on DIN EN ISO 14001:2009 regarding environmental management as well as the regulations in all systems/laws (including KonTraG) on risk management are anchored in the all-encompassing TanQuid management system.
Environmental protection, however, is mainly down to personal initiative and responsibility. If required, even where there are no official rules, we take the steps necessary to avoid or reduce emissions, to prevent the leaking or infiltration of products that are hazardous to water into the ground or groundwater and to keep waste products to a minimum.
