RECYL RECEIVES SAFETY AWARD AT THE “2019 CHEMISTRY INITIATIVES AWARDS”
Because safety is of the utmost importance to Recyl, we have implemented, during the course of 2019, a brand new specific pumping and weighing installation with PLC to automate and monitor the manufacturing process of our famous Recyl Cobra product, which has always been manufactured manually since the early days.
Management, automation technicians and production operators were all involved in this project, which achieved its ambitious objectives:
- Drastic reduction in material handling by the operators,
- Production time significantly reduced,
- Quality of the product guaranteed by the automated process,
- Substantial reduction in soiled packaging: transition to a circular economy, limiting the environmental impact by reducing pollution.
This project was submitted to the first “Initiatives Chimie 2019” trophies (“Chemistry Initiatives 2019”), which took place at the end of 2019.
The purpose of these trophies is to promote and reward successful collaboration between different players in the chemical industry: equipment suppliers and chemical manufacturers.
In partnership with the Lutz Jesco company, supplier of pumping equipment, Recyl has been selected to participate in the “Trophée de la sécurité partagée” catégory (“Shared Safety Trophy”).
The award ceremony took place on November 21st, 2019 and the Recyl Team is proud to inform you that the RECYL-LUTZ JESCO collaboration received the 1st prize for the best safety device jointly implemented around the Cobra manufacturing equipment.
We congratulate and thank all our colleagues who participated in this project, as well as our partner Lutz Jesco who helped us in achieving our objectives.
