Environmental Care

 

Protection of the environment by Auric Metal Finishers began in 1996 when a treatment plant was installed to continually process the waste water from all plating rinse systems and allow its re-use.

Traditionally, significant quantities of mains water were consumed and equal amounts of effluent discharge created. This is inherent to the plating process and is driven by the need to rinse the product to wash away chemical residuals after the plating cycle.

The installation of the treatment plant has resulted in Auric Metal Finishers drawing negligible quantities fresh water from the mains, equating to savings of 20 million gallons per year since 1996 and prevents similar quantities of waste water being discharged into the sewer.

The use of low energy lighting and 'smart' controls to detect movement and light level to activate lights in low use areas has resulted in a 33% reduction in lighting energy consumption.

Packaging is as far as possible reused or returned, with unusable items sent to recycling as are product off-cuts.

Solid wastes generated from the water treatment system are compressed and sent to reclaim facilities.
