As a specialist waste management company which is approved according to the BImSchG, we fulfil the requirements for an explosion-proof plant for liquid waste with flash points ˂21°C and as an upper-tier hazardous incident plant. We have approval for the storage, treatment and handling of hazardous waste, and we are specialised in the storage and treatment of solvent-based and aqueous hazardous waste. The end of the treatment chain is the recovery of solvents, the energy recovery in industrial furnaces, the disposal in hazardous waste incinerators, or the material recycling. Our declared goal is to make product qualities that are customised in detail according to the requirements of the end users. End users from the cement, lime, and steel industries as well as operators of other industrial furnaces appreciate the consistent, defined material quality as well as our adherence to delivery dates and quantities within the agreed delivery framework.
We know exactly what we can do. We also know about the capacities and competencies of specialist partner companies throughout Europe, though. We would also be pleased to act as a broker or dealer for you and your hazardous waste, and to design solutions for both the environmentally-compatible and economical disposal in cooperation with proven partners – just contact us!
Whether we propose the waste management at our own facility, whether it is a standard brokerage deal with the waste management on a commission basis, or if it is the management of your hazardous waste including resale on your own account as a dealer, depends largely on the task at hand. Contact us and discuss your requirements – we are sure to find the right solution.
The proper and professional transport of hazardous waste is one thing. Practical delivery options are the other. The two go together and identify us as a premium address for the management of waste from 39 target industries. In our treatment plant at Mannheim-Rheinau Harbour, which has approval according to the BlmSchG, we offer a full range of services in terms of handling logistics. Deliveries are possible by:
In 2011, the first 400-tonne batch of liquid waste from the chemical industry was unloaded at Steiger 1, our marine terminal. Ship delivery at G.V.S. is of particular interest to customers who are able collect larger quantities of liquid waste in tanks or directly on board ship and obtain raw materials by ship as part of their production activities.
We build on a constantly expanded and perfected quality assurance system in everything we do. An integral part of this is the analytical department with its own company laboratory for the analysis of samples, input and output samples, and tank contents. Among others, the samples are examined for their calorific value, water content, inorganically and organically bound halogens, heavy metals, pH value and flash point. On the basis of the findings from the waste sample obtained in the laboratory, which is supplemented with information from the waste producer in the survey form, we determine the further procedure: The analysis determines how and when the waste is best delivered, whether further examinations beyond the obligatory incoming analysis are to be carried out upon acceptance, and which further waste management approach is to be chosen and with which safety measures. On this basis, we also prepare the declaration of acceptance in the waste disposal certificate, which complies with all legal requirements.
Each delivery is tested and analysed in the laboratory before acceptance. This ensures that only approved substances enter the cycle and that occupational safety and plant safety concerns are taken into account.
Among others, at our site at Mannheim-Rheinau Harbour, we have the following laboratory equipment and methods:
If further tests are required, we can draw on the experiences and capacities of specialist partner laboratories
Many forms of hazardous wastes are considered dangerous goods under the European Agreement concerning the Carriage of Dangerous Goods (ADR). To comply with these regulations, many forms of hazardous waste must be packaged and transported in specific UN-approved packaging. We provide you with this packaging on request, sort and package your waste on site, and label the waste in accordance with the relevant regulations of the ADR and waste legislation as well as the respective acceptance criteria of the waste management facilities.
We offer you “all inclusive” solutions and provide you with qualified technical personnel
You needn’t worry about (almost) anything.
We apply the same high standards of seriousness, reliability and professionalism to our partners as we do to ourselves.
We are talking about established, resilient partnerships with forwarding companies, logistics providers, industrial service providers, accredited laboratories and other waste management companies. In addition to our parent companies, our network includes other innovative waste management companies that specialise in the pretreatment and recovery of raw materials, some of them rare, from hazardous waste, as well as companies that remove harmful substances from hazardous waste and/or dispose of hazardous waste.
