C.C. Umwelt: Your partner
for incineration waste disposal
and recycling services

Successful resource recovery

The C.C. Umwelt: 50 years of providing comprehensive disposal and recycling services

Welcome to our website – we appreciate your interest in our company and services! The focus of our business is on special industrial waste and how to recycle it. After all, industrial waste does not magically disappear once it has reached the incineration plant. In fact, what actually happens is that it is reduced in size during the incineration process, “transforming” into mounds of slag and filter dust. And then? What happens to the millions and millions of tons of this special industrial waste?

The C.C. Umwelt has been addressing this challenge since 1969. We are part of the circular economy – with state-of-the-art technology, certified quality, a deep understanding of our customers’ needs and a high level of efficiency in the transport and processing of special industrial waste. Every year, we process more than one million tons of slag and filter dust for recycling or disposal. This makes us a strong partner for waste incinerators. We process the slag, extract metals and minerals and then recycle most of it – for example, reprocessed slag can be used in major road and landscape construction projects. As a construction supplier and project developer, we are a valued partner for the construction industry. Furthermore, we use the filter dust as backfill for abandoned mines, providing stability within the mine voids in a way that is safe in the long-term. At the same time, we are also making an important contribution to landscape conservation in German mining areas.

By recovering resources on a daily basis, we are making a significant contribution to reducing CO2 emissions and protecting the climate. Our customers are municipalities, towns, administration unions, waste incinerators, disposal companies and recycling specialists in Germany and other European countries. If you in need of a reliable and experienced service provider of comprehensive disposal and recycling services, we are the right partner for you! Our highly motivated team looks forward to hearing from you.
