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 the oil is cleaned and can thus be used again to service our trains.
The Dessau maintenance depot alone reprocesses up to 22,000 liters of old 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.
