Waste Management in the Metal Processing Industry


Waste management for the metal processing industry -
Smart solutions for a variety of needs

The automotive industry, which produces metal components for the heavy and light industry, has a very specific set of needs when it comes to waste management because of their variety. 

Thus, smart solutions are needed to manage a diverse mix of waste streams, including paints, oils, sludge and coolants, as well as general waste.

In order to find the best solutions, we start by understanding each type of waste, taking into account any space and logistics limitations. Then we implement the most efficient, environmentally friendly and cost-effective solution for each waste stream. 

Moreover, we ensure the collection and disposal of all types of waste, identifying those that can generate cost reductions and that can be reused or recycled. We safely identify, collect, separate and dispose of all types of car waste, including hazardous waste.

We have dedicated specialists who can provide advice on waste regulation and issues affecting the industry in general. We support educational programs dedicated to the workforce in this industry about the importance and methodology of proper waste separation. 

From paint to aerosols, oil-soaked cloths, plastic cardboard, we have the ability to manage any waste generated in the production processes of this industry.
