Waste utilisation

For the treatment of high-grade substitute fuels, for the production of high-grade products or for further processing in other recycling processes, we take over waste from the commercial area as well as from waste treatment or sorting plants. Please see the following pages for an exact description of the possible input wastes.

We will prepare a quotation tailored to your needs. Place your trust in our know-how!

From the appointment on site, via the sampling of your waste, up to chemical analysis (as far as necessary) we cover the entire range of a fair customer relationship.

Commercial waste in general

Commercial waste or commercial waste similar to domestic waste is treated by us in various plants.

Pre-sorted waste can be used directly in an EBS-treatment plant, while unsorted or mixed waste has to be disposed of either in a commercial waste pre-treatment plant or directly in a thermal plant (substitute fuel-fired power plant or waste incineration plant).

Special production-specific waste is utilised in a suitable plant in accordance with their material composition and chemical/physical properties.


Depending on their suitability, plastics are sent by us to one of our recycling processes.

In that way mono-fraction production waste with known product characteristics can be treated in our
Plastics recycling plant  to form regrinds similar to new product.

Mixed hard plastics are possibly suitable for recycling and will be treated and appropriately marketed by us.

Soft and/or thin-walled mixed plastics can be used in our substitute fuel treatment plant.

Production waste for substitute fuel production

The production waste suitable for the production of substitute fuels can be allocated to the following three main groups with lists of examples of sources and/or producers.

Paper/cardboard/chads from label- and paper-production

Characteristic sources:

  • Labelproduction
  • Photographic paper production
  • Packaging production
  • Paper mills

Textile materials/carpet waste/fibrous material and wood pulp

Characteristic sources:

  • Fitted carpet production (not from demolished buildings)
  • Material from take-back-systems
  • Production from babies´nappies (diapers)
  • Textile processing and sorting

Composite materials

We also accept composite materials from the above mentioned fractions which are not suitable for recycling because of the material composition or physical conditions.

High calorific waste

High calorific waste for substiute fuel treatment

Pre-treated mixed waste fractions from waste treatment or waste sorting plants or waste collected by means of appropriate manual pre-sorting at the source, mainly consisting of the fractions plastics, paper and textiles, are suitable primary products for our substitute fuel treatment.

These fractions may only contain slight mineral and metal percentages and must be free of electronic or other percentages containing pollutants.

Mixed plastics from the sorting of lightweight packaging:

High calorific waste:

Residual fractions from treatment plants

Residual fractions from treatment plants

Other residual fractions from waste treatment plants are also accepted by us and treated for further utilisation, in particular mixtures of mineral and organic waste (containing plastic/paper/textiles) (no or only slight biogenic portions).

Residues from wood processing

For the production of high-grade substitute fuels from the renewable raw material wood we require waste from woodworking and wood processing, in particular dusts.

Roofing felt

In our plant in Schwieberdingen, we take over bituminous roofing felt and waste containing bitumen from conversions, roof refurbishment, demolition and production.

Bituminous waste with copper adhesions as well as other extraneous materials such as asbestos, insulation material, building rubble, metal plate and sheet, iron etc. are excluded from acceptance. The waste delivered must not exceed a benzo(a)pyrene content of more than 50 mg/kg dry substance.

Used tyres

We recycle used tyres in our plant Tyrewolf in Pfullendorf near Lake Constance.
