Industries | Waste Management

Gas cylinders and fire extinguishers found and delivered to either storage centres or ecological platforms are only too often considered and managed as mere ferrous waste.

The compression energy of pressure packing, the capacity of a gas to flow freely, the type of waste contained and the state of preservation indicate the need to manage each cylinder with due professional expertise and competence.

Recent events have, once again, brought the topic of correct management of said waste into the limelight.  Multiservice companies and hazardous waste storage centres have started entrusting gas cylinder and fire extinguisher processing to companies that possess the necessary competence and experience.

Such an approach is crucial when managing flammable gases that can produce explosive blends, gases containing a porous asbestos mass (acetylene), toxic and/or corrosive gases, such as anhydrous ammonia, and ozone-depleting gases that are effective in the stratosphere, such as CFC, HCFC and extinguishing blends, such as Halon.

With long-standing experience in the chemical industry and management of gases, Tazzetti offers clients integrated solutions for safe transport and subsequent disposal of gas cylinders containing industrial gases and reclamation of processing, air conditioning and refrigeration plants.
