Solvay & ZF Services

Solvay makes its surplus demineralized water available to ZF Services. This has led to the improvement of a cleaning process and the reuse of a material at the end of its life cycle.

Solvay & Rigobert carpentry

Joint collection of Solvay's and Rigobert’s dangerous waste: that means two tonnes of waste per year are now treated adequately and responsibly.

This industrial symbiosis nets the carpentry shop 20% savings on waste treatment costs.

CPS-VCL & ZF Services

Welder training school CPS-VCL gives its surplus pallets to ZF Services.
That means fewer pallets have to be purchased and a resource is reused.
Good for 100 pallets a year, or a savings of 1,000 euros.
