Protecting our Environment

The DromotGroup strategy is educate and encourage employees and associates to seek out and incorporate environmental and sustainability benefits into not just our future processes but into our everyday working practices.

Successes

We have made significant progress in reducing environmental burdens for our partners through a series of initiatives impacting resources, consumption, energy utilization, dispersion and waste generation. The following are a number of these more significant actions.

Energy saving and CO2 reduction

Energy saving and CO2 reduction

The Comec DUAL FORCE reduces the batch cycle by half.

Thanks to its double working power, Comec Dual Force uses 30% less energy and 50% less H2O of traditional mills.

Labour Efficiency and Health & Safety

Labour Efficiency and Health & Safety

The Comec KYNESIS, in-line dispersing technology, increases dispersion by 4x.

Developed for high-speed dispersing, Comec Kynesis operates over 4x faster than equivalents not just improving process time, but significantly reducing energy consumption. The cleaning process is faster than in traditional dispersers, reducing the usage of potentially harmful cleaning agents by up to 90%. The induction force of Kynesis creates a vacuum which contains dust and minimizes powder inhalation. This offers significant benefits, particularly useful while dealing with potentially light powders.

Eliminate over-production, waste and batch cleaning

Eliminate over-production, waste and batch cleaning

The Dromont IN-CAN LINE offers reduced waste and eliminates between batch cleaning operations.

The Dromont In-Can Line, the just-in-time dispensing technology, doses all the components directly into the final shipping buckets, avoiding surplus production and washing operations of the various process tanks or stations, also preventing the obsolescence and consequent disposal of outdated products.

Water saving and VOC Free Colorants

Water saving and VOC Free Colorants

The Dromont PERFECTA retail tinting machine allows for VOC Free colorants and eliminates cleaning.

The Dromont Perfecta is equipped with the innovative and patented Air-tight Autocap and Self-humidification system. The system maintains an optimal moisture level of the cap by condensing distilled water directly from atmospheric humidity, thus eliminating water waste. Additionally, the maintenance-free patented technology avoids daily maintenance operation and purging resulting in colorant and labor savings but also in reducing special disposal costs for colorant waste.

The technical solutions introduced to reduce the frequency of colorants drying, allows the use of VOC Free Colorants, the environmentally responsible approach to in can tinting.

Reduced emissions systems

Reduced emissions systems

The Dromont SELECTA in-batch dispensing system, has dedicated circuit components reducing significantly the frequency of washing and volume of potentially harmful cleaning agents.

The Dromont Selecta can also be integrated with different accessories that can make the processes even more sustainable.

Ventilation equipment for fume capture integrated in the aspiration system and composed by different aspiration hoods, engineered to intercept and suck fumes before they go into the atmosphere and positioned at different heights according to the density of the vapors.

iBSM (in-Batch Shuttle Manufacturing) system for the reduction of vapor emissions. SELECTA doses into mobile tanks equipped with automatic opening and closing of the lid. The system will open the lid only during dosing, and -when the suction and ventilation system is active- this action creates a significant reduction in potentially harmful emissions.

Anti-bacterial contamination philosophy

Anti-bacterial contamination philosophy

The Comec & Dromont HYGIENIC FINISH SYSTEM aims to have all components in contact with the product made of AISI 316 stainless steel and equipped with internal polish finish. This ensures a lower requirement for cleaning agents and lower product waste. Also the flanges and connections of the plant are recommended to be made of hygienic material. In addition to a reduction in corrosion, this system guarantees a low bacterial concentration in dead spots and high bacterial removal during cleaning cycles.

The Hygienic Finish System is a low waste eco-friendly novel solution for water-based paints production avoiding the use of harmful preservatives, biocides and disinfectants.

A Virtuous Circle

Our commitment is reflected in protecting and respecting the environment, but involves also ethics and safety issues, supported by transparency of relations, to safeguard the people and the communities involved in the whole production process and value chain.

We believe that partnering throughout the entire value chain is a key enabler to a more sustainable world. That’s why we collaborate with Suppliers and Customers to accelerate and develop these initiatives.

This is a journey to be taken together.
