Since incorporation, Mantank has fastidiously maintained its legal obligations with regard to the environment. ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems Accreditation is one further step to demonstrating its position.

If you are a petrochemical or pharmaceutical manufacturer and have industrial waste of any type including Tank Cleaning, dewatering or Plant Decommissioning, Mantank Environmental Services is now internationally recognized as an environmentally responsible industrial cleaning contractor.

Mantank was established in 1995 to provide a wide range of high quality industrial cleaning solutions to both large and small companies in the chemical and petrochemical sectors.

Since incorporation, Mantank has fastidiously maintained its legal obligations with regard to the environment. ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems Accreditation is one further step to demonstrating its position. Rainwater harvesting for drain recycling tankers, deployment of filter presses for customers who require waste reduction and re-use of materials, training, environmental risk assessments and operational impact assessments are just some of the processes intrinsic to the organisations Environmental Management System.

ISO 14001 relates to environmental issues. Although it is a system standard, it requires organizations to identify and assess environmental aspects and take necessary control to reduce environmental impacts. Clearly within the industrial cleaning business, this goes a considerable amount further than ensuring paper is correctly recycled. From toxic and flammable tank cleaning or environmentally sensitive dewatering to industrial cleaning and plant decommissioning, Mantank has the proven management skills to deal with all client requirements. Through the identification and assessment of environmental aspects and impact Mantank can assure client piece of mind.

ISO 14001 was first published in 1996 and specifies the actual requirements for an environmental management system. It applies to those environmental aspects which the organization has control and over which it can be expected to have an influence. The standard is not an environmental management system as such but rather serves instead as a framework to assist in developing bespoke environmental management systems. Within Mantank, ISO 14001 is integrated with its ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001-2007 certification to ensure the business meets its environmental and economic goals within applicable legislation.

ISO 14001 is often seen as the corner stone standard of the ISO 14000 series. This standard is applicable to any organization that wishes to:

  •      implement, maintain and improve an environmental management system
  •     assure itself of its conformance with its own stated environmental policy (those policy commitments of course must be made)
  •     demonstrate conformance
  •     ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations
  •     seek certification of its environmental management system by an external third party organization
  •     make a self-determination of conformance

This latest accreditation is built on a history of sustained long term capital investment in the company, coupled with a total commitment to client care by providing the highest level of support and services. This approach over the last 16 years has projected Mantank to be a leading supplier of waste management solutions in the UK.

Mantank Environmental Services Limited was established in 1995 to provide a wide range of high quality industrial cleaning solutions to both large and small companies in the chemical and petrochemical sectors. Mantank’s business is specific to industrial waste management solutions from tank cleaning & dewatering to plant decommissioning & land remediation.
