The DOPA® 6N double wall tank lining with vacuum monitoring technology has been approved in Israel by the Ministry of the Environment. The official confirmation, notified on 28th December, means another step forward for Wolftank Adisa, which already provides its leading double wall system all around the world.
DOPA® 6N approval in Israel
The Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection confirmed that DOPA® is permitted to be used in underground storage tank repair, which will be executed with Wolftank Adisa’s epoxy resins.
The Ministry’s decision relies on the fact that these epoxy resins are tested by an external laboratory (TÜV SÜD) in accordance with standard EN 13160-7, and in the evidence that the various fuels and chemicals for which the lining system is suitable were selected in accordance with DIN 51600, DIN EN 228.
This confirmation also enables Farkash Renewable Sources as local partner of Wolftank Adisa to apply the DOPA® tank lining technology in the State of Israel with immediate effect. Farkash Renewable Sources is an Israeli company located in Hod HaSharon, and a leading firm in the energy and environmental sector of the country.
Lining system applied all around the world
After more than 30 years of successful application, DOPA® is a leading double wall lining method for tank lining, tank rehabilitation and transformation from single to double wall for underground and aboveground tanks. Due to the constant research & development as well as innovative procedures from Wolftank, in accordance with regional regulations for adaptation and compliance, DOPA® is a complete solution totally adapted to a huge variety of particularities and specific necessities. However, it is not only useful for fuel tanks, but it can also be considered for chemicals including solvents and alcohols, such as ethanol or methanol storage.
