Reducing our water usage
Our new Dal Prete water treatment plant has created a closed cycle for our water
Our new water treatment plant arrived in March and now it is up and running, it is helping us to reduce our water usage and environmental footprint. This Dal Prete system filters and clarifies the wastewater from our machines, making it so pure it can be used on the spindles of our CNCs. This recycling system has created a closed cycle for our water, removing the need for us to use precious mains water.
As a business, we continually invest in the best machinery and systems to optimise, simplify and maintain the high standard of our stone processing, and to ensure we do everything to the best standard, and with the least environmental impact.
The Dal Prete system is a big investment for us but as a business, we continually invest in the best systems and machinery to run the business. Our aim is to optimise, simplify and maintain the high standard of our stone processing, whilst protecting the health and safety of our team and the environment. Before the system was installed, our machinery used clean water on a daily basis. Today we don’t use any clean water in the workshops and we are investigating how we can use rainwater for our toilet flushing.
Many thanks to Adriano Dal Prete for visiting us and advising us on the best solution.
