Environmental Benefits

The aerospace industry faces increasingly stringent legislation and EU environmental directives, but Regen has a total solutions package for your chemi-milling operation that can address your environmental concerns regarding waste disposal and cost. The Regen System vastly reduces the environmental footprint of the chemi-milling process by removing the need to dispose of spent chemi-milling waste. This reduces the spiralling cost of such disposal. The Regen System is beneficial to the environment as it provides a way to recycle the toxic by-products of the chemical milling process by making the majority of these by-products inert. Instead of one toxic waste stream, clients have three new products:

• A cleansed, reusable, chemi-milling solution
• An aluminium hydrate by-product which can be used in water treatment and other industries
• A heavy metal by-product which can easily be re-used within the asphalt/bitumen industry.

The environmental benefits of the Regen system were recognised when the company was honoured with the prestigious Green Apple and Manufacturing Industry Achievement Awards.

A spokesperson for the MIAA Awards described the Regen System as: "An excellent example of a ‘whole-life’ management approach that has managed to successfully address environmental concerns, whilst at the same time producing benefits for both companies involved. A win-win situation for everyone."
