Technical Plating has several environmentally conscious initiatives in place, these initiatives address all aspects of our business, from our full LED lighting in our offices and plant, to our water reuse and reduction systems, and even our recycling and waste treatment plant, these initiatives and investments help mold our philosophy of operating a high quality, environmentally friendly plating company.
Technical Plating's environmental compliance staff keep an open line of communication with officials from the city, county, state, and the EPA on an ongoing basis to find ways reduce waste, recycle products and metals, and reduce water consumption.
Technical Plating is extremely committed to treating and returning the water from our processes back to the environment cleaner than when it came to our facility through our flow through water treatment department. This was designed to meet our specific plating needs and allows us to treat all of our different processes in the same treatment area. The metals in the water are precipitated out, and then dewatered through a filter press and turned into a sludge which is the main waste that we produce. That material is then recycled. Water treatment is monitored to ensure we are in compliance with rules and regulations set by our local and federal regulators. The water treatment operators are well trained, and continue to update their knowledge as the waste industry becomes more advanced. All metal and plating process materials are conflict free as well.
Technical Plating takes environmental and safety regulations very seriously and will continue to improve our environmental initiatives and provide our customers with the highest quality plating solutions, which is what TPI is known for.
Technical Plating runs a proprietary Water Reuse System which allows us to recycle the water that is used in our processes. The water treated and is then taken from our waste treatment plant and pumped to several different lines in the plant as an effort to reduce water usage and keep costs down.
