eco-logical recovery

Über uns

ecorec ist seit 1993 in der Abfallwirtschaft tätig. Die Hauptaktivität ist die Aufbereitung von Abfällen zu alternativen Brennstoffen, die in der Zementindustrie eingesetzt werden. Seit 2015 ist ecorec ein Teil der CRH Gruppe welche mit den eigenen Zementwerken die Abnehmer der alternativen Brennstoffe sind. CRH ist mit seinen beiden Zementwerken in der Slowakei (Rohožník und Turňa nad Bodvou) der größte Zementproduzent in der Region.

Warum wir es tun

Wir können Abfälle verwerten, die nicht mehr recycelbar sind. Die in unserem Werk produzierten alternativen Brennstoffe werden zu den Zementöfen geliefert, wo sie bei hohen Temperaturen um 1.400 ° C im Prozess mitverarbeitet werden. Die gemeinsame Aufbereitung von Ersatzbrennstoffen bei der Zementherstellung unterliegt strengen Qualitätskontrollen und Umweltauflagen. Generell ist die Zementherstellung ein hocheffizienter Energie- und Materialprozess, weshalb die Verwendung von Ersatzbrennstoffen in der Zementindustrie außerordentlich wertvoll ist. In Bezug auf die Umwelt ist diese Produktionsmethode viel umweltfreundlicher als die Verwendung herkömmlicher fossiler Brennstoffe.

Unsere Serviceleistungen

We work closely with waste management companies, industry, and municipalities to manage their waste in most efficient and modern way. We offer convenient and environmentally friendly waste treatment, sufficient capacity and flexible recovery options. We provide energy utilization of combustible wastes, processing waste fuels and recycling of mineral waste materials.

For example, we can take care of mixed packaging from industry, non-recyclable waste from sorting stations, tires and many other types of waste. We also process materials from a variety of industrial processes such as foundry sands, construction and demolition waste, ash from biomass or coal powered power plants, and many others.

Health & Safety

The health and safety of our employees and anyone affected by our activities are our top priority. Nothing is more important than protecting ourselves and others from harm. For us, safety is never compromised. Therefore, the overall goal at ecorec plants is „zero harm to people, zero damage to property and zero damage to the environment”.

Environmental protection

We take full responsibility for recovery of your waste while respecting all legislative requirements, European waste hierarchy, quality standards and health and safety regulations. ecorec strives to keep waste management hierarchy to ensure that waste is not be used in cement kilns if better ecological and economical ways of recovery are available. Can not better example of CIRCULARITY than what we do.

Our commitment for society

At ecorec we know, that trust and support of our stakeholders is an important part of our mission. Therefore, we proactively develop long-term relationships with those affected by our business including employees, community members, customers, shareholders, organizations and governments. Providing our services, we contribute to improvement of local waste management infrastructure on a long term.

Our company is certified according Occupational Health and Safety Assessment System (OHSAS 18001) integrated with our internationally Certified Quality and Environmental systems (ISO 14001 and ISO 9001).

Circularity

We are closing the loop, thus creating circular economy! Our business model is helping construction sector to diminish its environmental impact. The main causes of the construction’s environmental impact are found in the consumption of non-renewable resources. By providing waste fuels to cement industry we mitigate use of non-renewable fossil fuels, on the one site and helping to solve society’s waste problem on the other.

Another example is reuse of various materials (e.g. construction and demolition waste) from the industry as a substitute for virgin raw materials (as limestone or clay) in the cement production. By doing this we can substitute huge quantities of virgin materials and lowering environmental footprint of the industry.

Circular business model works.
