|PCB-capacitors will be recycled in a similar way as transformers. The capacitors will be drained and opened. The metal case and the isolators are decontaminated with solvents. Chemical processing recycles the Chloride out of the PCB oil. The recycling rate for PCB-capacitors is approx. 50%. The other 50% consist of insulation and metal sheets, which have to be incinerated.||BAT and BET
To protect the environment Orion uses the Best Available Techniques and the Best Environmental Techniques (BAT and BET). Which are for instance: cold rinsing, cleaning of solvents by vacuum distillation, low speed sawing to avoid high temperatures while opening the capacitors.
