A sustainable resource policy is based on closed material cycles.

This is achieved by:

  • Maximization of material recovery for metallic and mineral substances.
  • Emission-free disposal of the remaining disposals in separate substances in separate compartments giving the opportunity of a later re-use.
  • Preferably complete destruction and separation of dangerous substances such as pathogenic germs, Hg, POPs (persistent organic pollutants) et cetera.
  • Incorporating of additional material flows in the process of thermal treatment.

The continual thermal treatment of waste can sustainably increase the efficient use of materials and energy over the entire lifecycle of products. Additionally it helps to reduce the need for repository capacities. The remaining landfills will in the future be planned / organized as emission-free interim storages, which are accessible and prepared for a later re-use of the disposal.
