Your reliable partner for decades.
Environmentally friendly recycling of waste from the automotive industry and production plants.
We focus on the recovery of individual materials and their return to the circular economy as well as the saving of primary energy.
We recycle oily waste and oil filters
Oil filter recycling
We split them into their valuable components: waste-oil, scrap, paper. In the first step, the incoming material is manual examined and foreign material (waste thrown into the wrong bin) removed, which would hinder further treatment in the sorting plant.
The oil filters are then broken down and separated into their individual components:
The shell becomes metal scrap, which is cleaned in a second step.
The filter paper, made of cellulose or plastic, becomes available as dry substitute fuel.
The containing oil is collected and sent to a waste oil refinery, where group III base oil is produced.

Recycling of oily waste
Oil-contaminated waste occur in every car repair shop and in many factories. It is heterogeneous and composed of various types of waste, such as oily rags, wiping cloths, absorbents, filter materials, oil filters, metal scrap, metal and plastic cans, packaging, protective clothing. They are contaminated by hazardous substances such as oil or solvents (>55°C flash point).
In our materials recycling facility we do a manual pre-sorting, then the machinery will sort out materials such as iron, non-ferrous metals and plastics one by one.
The scrap is sent to melting furnaces and plastic cans are material recycled if made from HDPE.
Oil filters get sorted out and then treated in a separate line.
The residuals like cloth, paper and tiny plastic-bits are only a fraction of the original quantity. They get grinded and are used as a substitute fuel in a cement kiln.
EWC 15 02 02* absorbents, filter materials (including oil filters not otherwise specified), wiping cloths, protective clothing contaminated by hazardous substances
As we do a material substance recycling, we cannot accept slurry mud, acids, oxidizers, toxic and infectious substances, asbestos, quicksilver, powders.
Since European Waste Code 150202 is rather broad, just mail a few photos of the waste if you are not sure.

Plastic can recycling
Made of HDPE, plastic canisters from a bottle up to the size of a drum can be recycled. We do a manual pre-sort and cans get emptied if necessary. They are then grinded, washed and dried. The HDPE-regrind is sold for regranulating in the EU and used for injection moulding.
