As part of the investment project, Saltigo has expanded its storage facilities to include an active container warehouse. It will ensure an even more efficient supply of raw materials and solvents for production in ZeTO and the adjacent Plant 4. For this purpose, ISO tank containers stored can be connected directly to the production plants by means of a so-called pipe station and thus emptied or filled in this way. Photo: Saltigo GmbH
