Hazardous waste

We run chemical and industrial parks and know exactly how to properly and professionally destroy waste in a way that minimizes your liability. Our experts are used to safely handling hazardous waste – from gases and difficult dusty waste to liquid production residues or biogenic waste with tramp materials.

Bring us all your difficult waste, whether solid, pasty, liquid, dusty or gaseous or toxic, highly toxic, heated or low-flammability. We’ll dispose of it at our residue incineration plant in a clean process that ensures total regulatory compliance and full liability protection.
