Waste, Rubble & Asphalt
Targeted environmental analytical evaluation
The building industry is among the most strongly growing and resource-intensive economic sectors in Germany. Sustainability and the protection of resources are also gaining more importance in this field as well. Therefore, the goal is to take the waste that is produced from demolition (e.g. rubble, wood waste) and roadmaking (asphalt), and to integrate it into a circular economy that saves resources.
In Germany, waste laws are regulated at a national level, state level, and at a municipal level. These are based on the German federal laws for recycling and waste management. They stipulate that waste fundamentally should be prevented and should be recycled. A targeted environmental analytical evaluation can clarify whether waste can be put into a recycling process (either material or energetic) or whether it must be disposed of or removed. In both cases, either when recycling or disposing of waste, reducing the environmental impact is paramount. Depending on the guidelines of the individual state or municipality, various types of waste are subject to different analyses.
With over 30 years of experience in the field of declaration analysis, and using state-of-the-art, accredited methods, we analyze all of the established analytical parameters that are legally required for a wide variety of types of waste (e.g. asphalt, building rubble, wood waste, railway gravel, and more). You receive a clearly structured and understandable test report, which enables you to read the results and classification (e.g. in accordance with LAGA Rubble, Landfill Ordinance) quickly and precisely.
Thanks to our regional presence, we not only provide you with expert consulting on the regulations and ordinances valid in individual states, but we also provide you with independent sampling, the appropriate sample containers, and we can even pick up your sample directly from the construction site.
