The protection of the environment is a challenge of global dimensions. This goal extends across national borders, we can implement only effectively it if we all contribute something. Valbruna is fully committed to the protection of the environment. We make our specific contribution by means of environmentally friendly production techniques. All subsequent products that are made from our special steels, nickel alloys and titanium, can easily and affordably recycles and be used again
Stainless Steel and CO2
Like any other industry, the stainless steel industry aims to reduce its CO2 emissions. The purpose of this document is to clarify what those emissions are and where they originate.
Appropriate investment plans follow the guidelines for the reduction of air emissions, as well as water purification and regeneration of baths to reduce the reprocessing of waste to the consequences for the environment, according to the most recent EUlegislation such as :
Health and security policy
Safety management scheme under the requirements of Seveso Law, annual improvement projects including the continuing vocational training of workers, preventive maintenance programs, NDT (nondestructive testing) for the key components of production facilities, reduction targets regarding accidents at work, facilities’ upgrade on the latest state of art of technology.
REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) is without doubt the most advanced reference EU security regulation for the production of chemical substances. Ever since it was published, Valbruna endeavored to ensure compliance by its staff and suppliers. Although most of Valbruna’s products are classified according to REACH as “articles which do not intentionally release chemical substances”, we have provided a declaration that is available to all those who ask for it (clients, suppliers, stakeholders, ...) which specifies the necessary requirements and current and possible future obligations to be communicated along the commercial and supply chains. The declaration is revised periodically according to the development of the regulations.
MSDS (MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET)
Regulations CE 1935/2004 e 2023/2006
In most cases, Valbruna’s steel products are classified, according to REACH, as “articles which do not intentionally release chemical substances”, and therefore do not have to be accompanied by a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). Nevertheless we have provided, upon request of our clients and exclusively for the products concerned, a MSDS that conforms to the applicable regulation. For further information do not hesitate to contact our offices.
CONTROLLO RADIOATTIVITÀ MATERIE PRIME E PRODOTTO FINITO
Raw materials (steel scraps & ferro-alloys) and finished products are checked in our facilities in order to detect any possible radioactive contamination. These checks are carried out automatically as vehicles enter and exit the facility. The alert level is such as to guarantee the safety of employees and final users. Most of our raw materials (steel scraps) are sourced from Italy.
The RoHS Directive (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) limits the use of substances, considered potentially damaging to human health if contained in electrical and electronic equipment. Categories of electrical and electronic equipment covered by the ROHS directive:
- Large household appliances
- Small household appliances
- IT and telecommunications equipment
- Consumer equipment
- Lighting equipment
- Electrical and electronic tools
- Toys, leisure and sport equipment
- Medical devices
- Monitoring and control instruments
- Automatic dispensers
- Other EEE not included in the above categories
Since Valbruna products could potentially be used for such purposes, we have prepared, after internal tests and analyses, a declaration that is revised periodically according to the development of the regulations.
