Battery Recycling Solutions
We have revolutionised the lithium-ion battery value chain for electric vehicle and industrial use batteries. Our low-CO2 solution makes over 80% of the battery recyclable, returns the scarce metals used back into circulation, and resolves the sustainability gap by reducing the need to mine nickel, cobalt, and other scarce metals.
Waste Management Services
We provide hazardous waste treatment with our high temperature incineration plants as well as physio-chemical treatment for inorganic hazardous waste, such as acids and bases. We also treat contaminated process waters at our evaporation plant. Furthermore, we treat a wide range of contaminated soils in our numerous industrial waste treatment centers.
