ECTA, CEFIC and EFTCO developed and published in Feb 2017 new best practice guidelines related to the cleaning of dry bulk polymer tank trailers. For many years, all of the polymer suppliers and transport companies have identified their own specific cleaning requirements resulting in slightly different practices. This differentiation might create confusion for the haulier, the cleaning station and the supplier. The purpose of this new best practice guideline is to ensure the cleaning process is optimized and the potential cross contaminations from previous product loads can be reduced to a minimum. ECTA also want to thank all participating companies for their knowledge contributions while sharing their inputs and best practices making the transport of polymers more sustainable for our customers and our environment.
