The environmental management system that sanco uses ensures that dangerous substances, which are by-products of the production procedures, are not uncontrollably discarded into the environment due to the rational waste management treatment. Rational waste management takes place within the company, by using modern processing systems, as well as by outsourcing the procedure to specialized waste management companies.
Environmental Management System ISO 1400:2004

Specialized Processing and recycling Industrial Waste Unit
As far as liquid waste is concerned, sanco has installed a Specialized Processing and recycling Industrial Waste Unit that can recycle all liquid by-products that result from metal covering. These recycled by-products are then capable of being fully used at production.
Aerial waste that are a result of furnaces and boilers are driven into a specialized filter system, which is designed to minimize aerial waste environmental impact.
