Waste management and recycling

waste sorting analysis

The institute executes waste sorting analysis of various types of waste (municipal waste, recyclables, commercial and industrial waste) for companies and public bodies regularly and analysis recycling opportunities. Our further fields of activity include amongst others the development of operational and municipal waste disposal concepts, investigations for optimization of waste management plants (e.g. MBT, waste heating plants, biogas plants, composting plants) as well as material and energetic waste recycling, supporting analysis for the commissioning of technical plants and material flow analysis.
