Technology for minimization of VOC emission

Adsorbing-catalytic system 

Volatile organic compounds, generated during the production process, are extracted and thickened on the adsorbers. They are then incinerated at a very high temperature in a catalytic afterburner, with the presence of a catalytic agent. As a result, only compounds not harmful to the environment are released in the atmosphere.

Sewage Treatment Plant

Industrial wastewater generated during the production process may not be directly released to the sewage system. Therefore, prior to that process the wastewater is pretreated: first neutralized, then filtered by means of sediment traps and sand filters. Chemical compounds in the form of dry deposits are directed to the waste treatment company. The sewage water cleared in such a way is directed to the municipal sewage system. The sewage treatment process is fully supervised and monitored by internal and external laboratories.

Waste reduction/management

The waste produced by us in majority is subject to the recycling process; 98% of our waste is recycled or reused (only 2% goes to landfill). We are constantly trying to reduce the volume of waste. In 2013 we reduced waste volume by 9% compared to 2012.

Chemical Substance Control for Purchased Products

SumiRiko Poland manufactures a wide range of industrial rubber and resin products. Raw materials and other items containing various chemical substances are used in the manufacture of these products. We manage chemical substances appropriately to minimize their environmental impact in the vicinity of our facilities and to ensure workplace and product safety.

TRP Environment Fund

In 2007 we created the TRP Environment Fund. Finances generated are obtained from the sale of waste generated in our plant (plastic, aluminum). The idea of this fund is to support the ecological education of children and youth of the local area.
