Zinc and zinc alloy plating is a very energy-intensive production process. Rectifiers as well as heating and cooling of the various baths from cleaning to plating and post-treatment contribute to significant power consumption throughout the plating process.
With a focus on developing sustainable and efficient production processes, Atotech helps electroplaters to significantly reduce energy consumption through highly efficient chemical processes and a broad range of auxiliary equipment tailored to these processes. Thus, Atotech not only contributes to cost-efficient production, but also supports the industry in reducing CO2 emissions.

In this webinar, we will present data-based CO2 savings potential that can be achieved with our plating processes and unique anode technology.

Topics that will be covered in our webinar:

• Carbon neutrality targets in the industry
• Relevant CO2 sources in the plating process and calculation of the resulting emissions
• Reduction possibilities of CO2 emissions in zinc nickel plating
- Alternative processes
- Auxiliary equipment
• Carbon footprint in the entire value chain
• Q&A session

As an innovative and environmentally conscious company, our goal is to be the leading supplier of sustainable surface finishing systems. In all our product lines, we strive to reduce the use of toxic substances and provide production processes that use less water and energy - all while reducing waste and emissions. We are here to help our customers reduce their CO2 emissions already today.
