How does DC help the Environment?

We pride ourselves on producing machines that reduce your carbon footprint, improve your energy efficiency and save you money long-term.

Tree planting initiative

For each warewasher, ice maker, washing machine and tumble dryer sold, we plant trees to offset some of the CO2 produced during the production of our machines.

This allows environmentally conscious consumers to easily choose a machine that aligns with their ethics.

DC Warewashing machines can provide:

  • Reduced water cycle consumption - striking the optimum balance between water usage and hygiene.
  • Innovative wash pumps and assemblies that use less power but deliver increased washing pressure
  • Doubled-skinned and insulated cabinet and door to reduce thermal and acoustic emissions.
  • Insulated boilers to reduce thermal emissions, improve recovery times and lower running costs.
  • Low volume wash tank that saves on water, electrical and chemical consumption.
  • Automatic Dosing Units to reduce over- or under-dosing and ensure the highest level of cleaning power and hygiene while minimising the environmental impact.
  • A reduction in overall energy consumption which protects our environment and minimises operating costs.

DC Icemaking machines:

  • Nearly all our icemaker machines use R290 refrigerant gas, with a zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) rating which means no invasive gases are released into the environment.
  • Use new generation insulating foams which use water as a blowing agent.
  • Noble metals such as copper, steel, iron and brass which are easily removable and fully recyclable.
  • Use new energy-saving compressors providing a reduction in electrical and water consumption.
  • 55-65% of noble metals within the machine are recyclable.
  • A further 20-25% can be recovered from electro-mechanical components such as the compressor, pump, fan and wiring.


Reducing, Reusing and Recycling in many aspects of our working day help minimise our impact on the environment.

Packaging - We use recyclable materials wherever possible which can then be re-used or recycled by the end user.

Invoicing - 90% of our invoices are sent via email reducing paper and emissions.

Delivery - Our machines are delivered by couriers using Zero Emission vehicles wherever possible.
