CHT Germany launches sustainable recycling plant in Dußlingen

CHT Germany GmbH celebrated the ground-breaking ceremony for its new container cleaning and recycling plant. This event marks a vital moment in the company’s journey towards becoming a more environmentally responsible chemical enterprise.

CHT Germany GmbH, a key player in specialty chemicals globally, has set a clear path towards climate neutrality with its robust corporate strategy centered on sustainability. The new facility, located at the Dußlingen site and backed by an investment of nearly 5 million Euros, underscores the company’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint through innovative resource management practices.

The cornerstone of this initiative is the implementation of a state-of-the-art container washing system designed for maximum resource efficiency. By focusing on cleaning and reusing existing packaging such as drums and IBCs (Intermediate Bulk Containers), CHT aims to significantly minimize the procurement of new materials. This approach not only conserves raw materials but also reduces energy consumption compared to recycling processes.

The new plant will operate with utmost resource efficiency, utilizing heat from a local renewable heating network and rainwater for its operations. A robust photovoltaic system installed on the roof will generate renewable electricity, ensuring sustainable energy use that exceeds the plant’s operational needs.
