SITC unveils eco-friendly 10,000 TEU dry containers


SITC Line has rolled out a new series of 10,000 TEU dry containers, featuring eco-friendly materials like bamboo flooring, waterborne paint, and MS sealant.


Chinese containership operator SITC Line has started integrating its newly acquired 10,000 TEU dry containers, the company announced.

This latest batch of containers, which is being gradually introduced by SITC Line, features sustainable technologies and eco-friendly materials.

Namely, SITC Line has opted for environmentally friendly materials in the manufacturing of these containers. Notably, the containers feature bamboo flooring, waterborne paint, and MS sealant, chosen for their eco-friendly properties compared to traditional materials. The utilization of waterborne paint has resulted in an 85% reduction in volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions compared to conventional oil-based paint, contributing to improved air quality and reduced environmental impact.

Bamboo, known for its rapid growth cycle, serves as a renewable resource, reducing reliance on traditional wood materials. Additionally, bamboo flooring offers superior strength, enhanced compressive capacity, and increased durability compared to conventional wood flooring options, SICT said.

To further mitigate environmental pollution, SITC Line has implemented an undercoating pollution prevention device in the production process of these containers. This addition aims to effectively prevent undercoating pollution and minimize environmental harm, showcasing the company’s commitment to responsible manufacturing practices.

The containers are scheduled for completion and delivery by early April 2024.
