Sustainability – Stainless Steel Containers

Black Forest Container Systems offers reusable containers, IBC’s, tanks and vessels made of the 300 series stainless steel which will last decades.

Stainless steel containers play an important role in sustainability. Black Forest reusable stainless steel containers are environmentally friendly, corrosion resistant, durable and 100% recyclable.

Stainless steel IBCs are the environmentally correct response:

  • Generate less waste - returnable IBCs eliminates the disposal of pallets and drums.
  • More efficient - the fewer the overall required containers, the lower the freight cost and fuel consumption.
  • Save energy - IBCs fill faster than drums reducing overall operating costs.
  • Recyclable - IBCs can be fully recovered and reprocessed in other useful products at the end of their service life.

Stainless steel IBCs not only benefit the environment, but also helps your company’s bottom line by reducing:

  • Product loss - completely drainable
  • Overall packaging costs - multi trip use
  • General expenses: rental of IBCs less expensive than purchasing.
