WRS STANDS FOR
WATER RECYCLING SYSTEM
Rhino Srl is very sensitive to environmental protection and ever since it was first established has been designing its systems with the utmost respect for the environment and in such a way that their function does not generate unnecessary waste of water. WRS stands for "Water Recycling System"... but it also means protecting our environment and creating a clean and better world, because water is a precious commodity.
A SMART WAY OF USING WATER
Water may "seem" as a renewable resource because it always comes back with rains and across rivers, but the amount of useful and "good" fresh water available on the planet decreases every year. Human activities have an impact both in terms of the quantity - volumes sampled - and quality of water. The water, in fact, often flows back into streams that have been degraded by waste and toxic substances and in any case, never in the condition we first received it. It is increasingly important, therefore, to come up with responsible management strategies to limit withdrawals, use and waste and to ensure at the same time that the standards of quality are preserved. Saving water should not appear as a constraint, but as a priority that affects the lives of each of us and our future.
Simultaneous suction ensures that toxic residues are vacuumed and collected to ensure that they do not contaminate the soil or are spilled in the environment, damaging the surrounding ecosystem.
Rhino cleaning systems ensure that during the cleaning cycle, all the liquids are aspirated and deposited in the tank. The Skimmer separates the oil inside the tank. The oil is then stored up in a container and disposed of, while the water undergoes a series of treatments including filtration and is recycled so that it then can be used again. According to analyses conducted by the Institute for the Environment, the filtered water does not need to be treated or disposed of separately. Lab tests confirm that the water, once treated, is free of heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, aromatic hydrocarbons and halogenated volatile hydrocarbons (lab tests accredited according to the DIN EN ISO standard).
Restoring a road after an accident is essential to ensure road safety.
ROAD ACCIDENTS IN ITALY ACCORDING TO ISTAT (ITALIAN NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF STATISTICS)
In 2016, 175,791 road accidents involving personal injuries occurred in Italy, causing 3,283 deaths and 249,175 wounded. Among the victims are cyclists (+ 9.6%), moped riders (+ 10.5%), and bikers (657,-15.0%).
WHAT IS ROAD WASTE?
If we were to provide a summarised definition, "road waste" are the solid parts that are dispersed during an accident, plus liquids such as oil, lubricants, fuels, coolants, etc. But whereas solid waste is more simple to remove because it is visible, liquid waste is harder to remove. The dispersion of this type of waste on the road considerably affects the adhesion coefficient, especially when the road surface is wet, and involves a high level of risk. This applies especially to the most vulnerable road users, such as moped riders and bikers. In fact, repairing the road surface involves removing any greasy substance such as lubricants, oil and grease. It is not enough to spread absorbent or sand, because the oil that seeps into the pores of the soil will return onto the road surface when it next rains, creating a highly dangerous emulsion and endangering our lives. According to statistics, 7% of accidents involving deaths or injuries take place in the exact same spot of the road because the compromised safety of the road in those spots had not been restored properly. Rhino also helps to reduce the risk of accidents because its systems restore 99% of the road surface, as proven by the GGVU certification (German monitoring body for road restoration and safety).
