Environmental Impact

Emission Reduction

MBP3

The very nature of the industrial coatings industry is that many of the coatings contain high amounts of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) - in many cases over six pounds per gallon. These emissions are regulated by the state as a precursor to ground level ozone smog. To remain in compliance as the business has expanded, the DECC Company invested in a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) to destroy VOC's generated by our mass production processes. The RTO enables DECC to remain environmentally compliant even in the current climate of increasing regulations relating to air pollution and public health.

Remanufacturing

Reduce Reuse RecycleThe DECC Company takes pride in the fact that a good portion of our business involves remanufactured parts. The environmental impact of remanufacturing parts instead of forging them brand new goes a long way towards the preservation of natural resources. When it comes to reducing, reusing, and recycling, we take it seriously.

Our application of coating on remanufactured parts not only solves a problem but allows our customers to save money by reusing their parts. In some cases, the manufacturer saved 40% - 60% versus buying new.

When DECC applies coating to remanufactured parts, they last longer and run more efficiently, there is one less part that ends up in a landfill, and there is one less hunk of metal mined from the earth for producing said part.

Review of Incoming Chemicals

The DECC Company is committed to reviewing all incoming chemicals as part of our commitment to protecting our employees and the environment.

Prior to any new sample or production coatings entering our plant, the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for that chemical is reviewed by our engineering and safety team to evaluate it against environmental regulations and its impact on employee safety. If for any reason it is determined that the coating is noncompliant or it poses an elevated safety risk to our employees, we will not allow it into our company. This is a commitment we have made and will uphold, despite the fact it could mean passing on a new opportunity for additional business.
