Waste analysis by WESSLING – we are partners with the waste management industry

At WESSLING, we regard waste as a valuable material – according to the principle: prevention before recycling before disposal. At WESSELING, waste analysis means that we analyse the composition of residues so that they can then be specifically reused in agriculture,in industry or as fuel.

Recycling von Abfällen

The European Waste Framework Directive (2008/98/EC) defines how companies must handle waste: on principle, residues should always be avoided when possible. If this is not realistic, efforts must be made to attempt recycling prior to disposal. WESSLING supports you in your recycling process: in our specialised and accredited laboratories, we analyse waste and residues of various kinds – including compost, sewage sludges or fuels.

Of course, we also provide you with comprehensive advice on how best to avoid and reduce waste within your processes – because we regard waste analysis as a holistic process. Our experts ensure that you incur the lowest possible costs due to valuable material recycling, but also through analysing and optimising processes.
