At Gastech we want to reduce our impact on the environment by exceeding requirements, raising our own standards, and improving our practices.
Aluminium recycling is the process by which scrap aluminium can be reused in products after its initial production. The process involves simply re-melting the metal, which is far less expensive and energy intensive than creating new aluminium through the electrolysis of aluminium oxide (Al2O3), which must first be mined from bauxite ore and then refined using the Bayer process. Recycling scrap aluminium requires only 5% of the energy used to make new aluminium.
Gastech is proud to be able to offer our valued customers a FREE Recycling Service, for the energy efficient disposal and subsequent reuse of empty and expired calibration gas cylinders. Cylinders will be reprocessed at no cost to our customer. We will ensure that no cylinders will end up as landfill and be recycled and re used in an effort to reduce environmental impact on many levels.
Alternatively, Gastech also supply a range of 'Green' cylinders manufactured by our friends at PortaGas. These cylinders are set up with a special 'Strip and Ship' program that sees each cylinder supplied with special postage details so whenever the cylinders are empty they can be posted back and will be recycled and no charge to the customer!
Our only requirement is that the each cylinder is clearly marked EMPTY or EXPIRED to aid in the efficiency of the process and we will look after the rest…
