Pre-treatment of waste

Your waste is often subjected to a pre-treatment to optimise the recycling process. Vanheede Environment Group has various, in-house industrial plants to sort or pre-treat large quantities of waste in different ways before converting it into primary materials or energy.

Waste becomes a primary material

Did you know that every year we produce more than 448,843 tonnes
of new primary material? As far as possible, we convert waste into high-quality primary material for industry using innovative, green technology. In this way, we offer an alternative to ever rarer raw materials and we get a little closer to our ultimate goal: a circular economy.

Waste becomes energy

Making energy out of waste? Out of a landfill? We do it. We produce more green electricity than we need. We feed the surplus into the electricity grid. Our annual energy production is enough to run 12,000 households.
