Laboratory and analytics

Every decision about the optimum method of recovery or disposal of a hazardous waste is based on extensive analytical studies. We have our own laboratory specialised in such analyses that provides both decision-making information for the customer as well as monitoring and safeguarding the entire treatment process.

Our modern laboratory equipment includes analytical instruments such as ICP-OES (liquid samples) and RFA (solid samples). We also use physical determination methods such as calorimetry and flash point determination. Our range of services is complemented by the provision of additional parameters such as TOC, COD and phosphate content. In addition, colorimetric studies on toxic substances such as cyanides, chromates, phenols and toxicity test (EC50).



Mobile pollutant collection point

Hazardous waste from households and small businesses is collected with a mobile collection point on behalf of the public sector.

Our mobile pollutant collection points are supervised by recognised dangerous goods safety advisers and have an easily accessible drop-off counter. The waste can thus be accepted by our dangerous goods experts under safe conditions and then immediately triaged into appropriate sorting containers.

Mobile waste collection

Expired products and residues of oil paints, emulsion paints, acids, lyes, chemicals, expired plant protection products, fertilisers, wood preservatives, drugs, photographic chemicals, mercury thermometers and other unknown substances in liquid or solid form are collected.

Mobile waste collection

After additional checking, the waste is sent to approved waste disposal and recycling facilities. Cooking oil and waste oil are not collected via the mobile pollutant collection point. These products can be returned to the community collection points.
