Recycled steel pallets are a benefit for the environment
He raised the issue with his staff about what to do and out of the blue arose the brilliant idea of recycled steel pallets.
- We realized that we have steel residues from the cutting table available every single day, and it seemed obvious to use parts of that for steel pallets. The advantages of steel pallets soon manifested themselves. Steel pallets last longer, they can be stacked and they never break. They are good for workers’ safety as well, says Erik Fusager.
- Over 5 years that we have used steel pallets, I would estimate that we in total have saved approximately 47,000 wooden pallets. It is of course great news for the environment by that we produce savings on the use of wood, just as we are pleased with the financial gain of having several million Danish kroners being saved, says the foreman, who annually is involved in 2 to 3 CBI projects at BSB Industry.
- The CBI project with steel pallets is without doubt one of the most valuable projects I have been part of. To me personally, it is of great satisfaction to help solve a challenge and make a difference measured in terms of finances as well as safety and climate, Erik Fusager emphasizes.
