Are you responsible for waste sludge produced in industrial waste water treatment plants, residue from industrial processes or separator cleaning processes? The Waste Sludge Directive and the law require you to prevent any harmful effects of sludge on soil, plants, animals, and people. We provide professional disposal of waste sludge. Let us handle your waste and eliminate the risk of it entering soil or waterways, which would lead to deterioration of the quality of soil, surface or ground waters.

Why store the sludge left over after washing machinery, treating waste water, distilling solvents during regeneration, electrolysis or neutralisation? Laws and regulations strictly define and severely restrict the procedures for storing, packaging, transporting and disposing of waste sludge. Let us handle this responsibility.

We have experience in handling filter cakes with highly toxic elements and sludge for incineration in cement plants. We transport hazardous sludge in accordance with the law and ADR regulations.

We will ensure your waste sludge is safely and permanently disposed of with all necessary certificates and documentation.

  • Full legislative compliance
  • Management of waste streams to disposal, with preservation of the environment
  • Long-standing experience in waste sludge disposal.

We are ready to take care of your waste sludge.

How We Dispose of Waste Sludge

We provide competitive waste sludge disposal, with all necessary permits for packaging, transport and treatment.

The sludge (filter cake) we handle often comes from waste water treatment plants and contains highly toxic elements, such as chromium or mercury.

If the waste sludge contains mercury, we choose disposal in salt mines, in chambers insulated by potassium salts at depths of 600 m. This type of disposal prevents mercury from your hazardous waste from contaminating the environment. We transport hazardous sludge to Germany, with all permits and full compliance with packaging and handover requirements.

Chrome sludge from galvanization is subjected to a physical-chemical treatment, followed by co-incineration in cement plants with additional neutralisation of substances.

Our instructions and procedures can simply be integrated into your quality management, environmental protection and occupational health and safety systems.

How to Use Our Services

To use our service you need a waste testing report. If you do not have such a report, contact us and we will acquire one for you. 

  1. Waste Testing Report
    The Law on Waste Management requires all waste producers to possess a waste testing report establishing the characteristics of the waste and the potential presence of hazardous substances. As a waste producer you need to possess such a report.
    If you need to focus on your business and do not possess a waste testing report, let us organize everything. We will contact certified laboratories, characterize your waste and propose the optimum solution for waste disposal.
  2. Contact Us
    To use our services, contact us with your waste testing report.
    We will document the movement of each individual component of waste in accordance with regulations.
    Every ounce of your waste will be disposed of in accordance with regulations and standards.
    Expect a rapid response to your inquiry and a competitive offer. We will provide you with the best proposal for the disposal of your waste sludge in accordance with its properties.

Hazards of Environmental Pollution by Waste Sludge

Waterway pollution by sewage and industrial waste is a global hot topic. The irresponsible behaviour of people often makes water undrinkable, while increasing levels of water pollution make it unusable, spread environmental contamination and even the extinction of living species.

A low level of awareness of this hazard is clear in the following example, where a severe environmental problem is treated as a curiosity:

Cleaning returns polluted and waste waters to their original state, but also produces waste sludge. Sludge consists of water (96-99%) and dry matter (organic substances, heavy metals and pathogenic microbes). Part of the sludge becomes hazardous waste. Its disposal is a formidable task and investment.

Part of the waste sludge from municipal waste water treatment plants is treated as a resource. It can be biomass or fertilizer for agricultural land if it does not contain toxic substances. It is introduced into the soil as organic fertilizer, which is one form of disposal. Sewage sludge is used to produce compost, though opinions differ on this use.

Sludge disposal is performed so as to prevent deterioration of soil and water quality. Are there any guarantees in practice?
