We are going the extra mile to conserve raw materials. The Dessau maintenance depot has developed a special filtering procedure to reprocess old synthetic oil.
A filter ensures that pollutants, particles and water are filtered out of the old oil. The oil is then as good as new and can be used again to service our trains.
The Dessau maintenance depot alone saves 18,000 liters of new oil per year in this way. In addition, the synthetic oil used has a greater temperature stability than mineral oil, meaning the oil can be used safely on components during train servicing for many years to come .
