Here are some examples of what journals, specialist publications and other media have to say about the C. C. Group. Further down, below the media reports, you can also find local, national and global background information that is directly or indirectly related to the business of the C.C. Group.
C.C. Umwelt has a new shareholder with a 100-percent stake in the company: the Blue Phoenix Group, a slag recycling company based in Rotterdam (Netherlands). The German Federal Association for Secondary Raw Materials and Waste Disposal (bvse) has published a detailed report on this on its website. Following the merger with C.C. Umwelt, Blue Phoenix will become a “Pan-European heavyweight in slag processing” and one of the market leaders in Germany, England and the Netherlands.
In the current COVID-19 crisis, the disposal of household waste is as important as ever. German daily newspaper “DIE WELT” writes that the amount of household waste is increasing due to stay-at-home orders and more people working from home or being on furlough. The C.C. Group is successfully navigating this crisis, as it specializes in the disposal and recycling of slag from waste incineration plants. “DIE WELT” interviewed C.C.’s Managing Directors on this topic.

24 July 2019 | bvse Website: “Quantum leap in metal finishing“
On its website, the German Association for Secondary Raw Materials and Waste Management (bvse) reports on the unveiling ceremony for the new industrial machine “Stratego” at the C.C. Group’s headquarters in Krefeld. The technology of this new equipment is groundbreaking: the C.C. Group is making a quantum leap in the recovery of raw materials from waste incineration slag.
The Westfalenpost reports on why a “black mountain in Hagen-Kabel“ is a source of raw materials, causing the C. C. Group to invest millions in slag processing. The article was written on the occasion of the installation of C.C.’s new dual-pass non-ferrous metal separator with optimized screening technology at the company’s Hagen site. The new machine allows C.C. to extract valuable recyclable materials from municipal waste incineration slag using state-of-the-art aggregates.
Independent trade press publication, EUWID, reports on the new dual-pass non-ferrous metal separator at the C.C. Group’s facility in Hagen-Kabel.
The Hafenzeitung newspaper in Krefeld reports on C.C.’s Managing Director Dieter Kersting’s volunteer work for several trade associations and interest groups. Dieter Kersting has been the Chairman of the Trade Association of Processors and Recyclers of Incineration Slags (IGAM) since 2007. For the past five years, he has also been President of the Minerals division of the Trade Association for Scrap, E-scrap and Vehicle Recycling, which is part of the German Association for Secondary Raw Materials and Waste Management (bvse). Furthermore, he volunteers for the German Association of Waste-to-Energy Plants (ITAD), the Technical Association Of Energy Plant Operators (VGB PowerTech), and the industry initiative Climate Protection through Circular Economy (Klimaschutz durch Kreislaufwirtschaft e. V.).

The recycling industry magazine EUWID has published two articles by “Stratego” project manager Dr Georg Rottlaender (pages 156 to 163). Under the headline “Protection of health and the environment through hygienisation and neutralisation of pathogens and pollutants”, selected contributors explain the importance of thermal waste treatment. This ensures the hygiene of public spaces and helps protect the climate.
The industrial sector uses gravel to produce concrete. However, as regional daily newspaper “Heilbronner Stimme” reports, this raw material is becoming a scarce commodity in more and more regions of Germany. The newspaper cites a recent study by the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (Bundesanstalt für Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe, BGR). For a number of construction projects, the C.C. Group can provide an alternative to sand and gravel: The company manufactures quality construction materials that are derived, among others, from mineral materials.
A large number of people are staying at home due to the coronavirus pandemic – leading to an increase in waste from private households. In some German cities, this is becoming a problem for the local waste disposal companies. German business news magazine “WirtschaftsWoche” explains why the COVID-19 crisis could nonetheless lead to a decrease in the overall volume of waste.
How close are the EU member states to achieving the sustainability goals set by the United Nations? The EU Commission answers this question in an analysis published at the end of February 2020. The paper also includes findings on the waste management industries of the individual countries. A summary of these findings is available in German trade journal “EU-Recycling”.
The Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung, bpb) writes that, “for decades, Germany was an international pioneer and role model in the field of waste management. Germany is rightly proud of its waste management infrastructure, which includes a differentiated waste collection scheme and, for example, waste incineration plants that are exemplary from a technical standpoint …”. The C.C. Group is a reliable, long-term partner to many such waste incineration plants – in some cases, these partnerships span decades.
Prof. Dr. Dirk Hebel from ETH Zurich university describes why building sand is a finite resource, what the consequences of its depletion are and how mafia-like structures develop around the extraction of building sand. The C.C. Group takes this issue very seriously and is doing its own part to prevent the global depletion of sand by manufacturing alternative construction materials made from certified quality slag. These are suitable for use in civil engineering and other construction projects. ETH’s article “Sand: a finite resource” shows how urgently this is needed.

In this in-depth interview with Stern magazine, Stefan Lübben, Climate Protection and Energy Efficiency Officer at Hamburg’s largest waste management service provider, Stadtreinigung Hamburg, explains why the city of Hamburg values waste incineration slag, how it deals with it, why it uses recycled slag as a construction material and how it monitors the quality of its construction slag.
Following the successful remediation of the huge slag mountain in Sulzbach-Rosenberg, the administrative district of Upper Palatinate describes its history, remediation and recultivation with impressive pictures and texts.
The Trade Association of Processors and Recyclers of Incineration Slags (IGAM) is a point of contact for ministries and authorities in all matters regarding the environmentally friendly processing and recycling of municipal waste incineration slag. One of IGAM’s specific goals is to increase acceptance of construction materials made from slag, as they help to conserve resources. Dieter Kersting, Managing Director of the C.C. Group, has been Chairman of the IGAM since 2007.
