 10. TACSA




TACSA is a Spanish company with 25 years of experience, dedicated to organic coating of metal parts. Leader in its sectors, its mains activities are antioxidative protection by electrocoating process and topcoats by powder coating process. TACASA´s main clients come from automotive and other industries requiring high protection of their corrosion products.

The e-coating process requires huge quantity of high quality water in order to clean the metallic parts before being treated. The final quality of the process is highly correlated with the quality of the water used. We are currently investigating for sub-processes that could reduce the total net water consumption of our processes, reducing thus the generated wastes. So, it is of our outmost interest to improve the quality of the water reused and its compatibility with our industrial processes that uses organic treatments in which no bacteria are allowed. The present project is aligned with one of the TACSA´s two main strategies for the next years: to increase the efficiency of its productive processes while reducing their environmental impact.
