Our quality assurance commitment

New methods, innovative cleaning agents, and high technological requirements - part cleaning is an equally exciting and dynamic field of endeavor. In order to keep pace with the latest state of the art, the experts from Ch.Batsch Verfahrenstechnik GmbH are engaged in various committees and organizations.

FiT

Fachverband industrielle Teilereinigung e.V. (industry association for industrial part cleaning)

The industry association for industrial part cleaning (FiT) represents suppliers, users, consulting, planning, engineering, and service companies, scientific institutes, and industry associations for this industrial sector. Its objective is to represent and promote the general, intangible and scientific interests of its members.

The members of the industry association "Industrial Part Cleaning" form industry committees for the various topics to develop solutions for the issues affecting the sector.

The industry association collaborates with a wide range of institutional and national agencies, such as the Federal Physical-Technical Institute (PTB in Braunschweig. New technologies related to cleaning chemistry, process engineering, bath maintenance equipment, environmental protection, waste recycling, waste disposal, and a practitioner's approach to bath and surface finish analytics are of particular interest. The experience gained is made available to the industry in seminars, training sessions, tradeshows, symposiums, public presentations, and in industry publications.

In part together with ZVO (Central Industry Association for Surface Finish Engineering) and its bodies, FiT offers a forum for addressing industry-specific issues.

The European Economic Senate (EES)

The EES is a body of specially selected, very successful individuals, whose businesses, and their products or services, are among the market leaders in their respective fields.

The number of senators is limited to 300 individuals, representing as many different fields of industry as possible.

Today the EES is the focal point of an EU wide network of more than 1 million partner enterprises.

The neutrality and complete independence of the EES, and the Senator’s high level of business and industrial expertise make this body a respected business partner for the political decision makers and public authorities.

Similar bodies, with the same high expectations and demands on their members are being founded across Europe and linked to one another.

We have the courage, the obligation and the confidence to create a ‘culture of responsibility and trust’. Our dialogues with the politicians and society are less emotional.

We campaign against the organised lack of responsibility in almost all areas, and to work with our partners in assuming responsibilities for the economic and social interests of the businesses we represent.

ESRG - the European Solvent Recycler Group

ESRG  - the EUROPEAN SOLVENT RECYCLER GROUP – was founded in 2004 under the aegis of the German Association for Chemical Distributors – VCH (Verband Chemiehandel) - that is now the secretariat of ESRG. We are an international group of professional members engaged in a wide range of solvent recovery activities. Our aim is to promote the safe and economic management of post-use solvents. Used chemicals, such as contaminated solvents, are potential hazardous waste and should therefore be fully recovered and reintroduced into reuse and only under exceptional cases be disposed of in another manner. The goal is to re-use solvent waste as production material and not to unjustifiably dispose of it in a less environmantally friendly way. This is also the philosophy behind the recycling and waste disposal waste hierarchy legislation of the European Waste Framework Directive (2008/98/EC).

Recycling chemicals is not only important from the ecological viewpoint, it also contains a real economic benefit for the industrial user. Contaminated solvents often represent a value which justifies the recovery costs. Nevertheless, without subsidies, economically and ecologically viable solvent recycling is only possible within narrow cost limitations. One reason for this is the legal situation which in most cases treats the thermal utilisation of waste and its remanufacturing in the same manner. However, in comparison with thermal  utilisation, the remanufacturing of a substance requires an enormous technical outlay before a tradable and qualitatively high value solvent is produced. Therefore, the economic feasibility of solvent recycling is determined on the one hand by the calorific value of the solvent waste and on the other hand by the market price of fresh solvent.

National and international customers from various industries use the expertise and services of the solvent recycling companies

Industry examples are:

  • Paint, varnish, lacquer and resin producers
  • Chemical industry
  • Automotive / aviation industry
  • Solvent / chemical trading companies
  • Furniture industry
  • Printing industry
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Fluid Disposal industry
  • Industrial cleaning companies
