Committed to the Environment: Recylex and its subsidiaries Take Responsibility. We clean up former sites and landfills at the Oker/Harlingerode to protect people and the environment.
The protection of the environment depends on innovation. In the same way that we achieve as little ecological impact as possible in current production through the use of modern filter and recycling processes systems, we also face up to our historical missions in terms of environmental rehabilitations.
Health is at the centre of our activities. We do everything necessary to avert potential risks to people and the environment that may arise from contamination. In doing so, we rely on regular situation and hazard analyses and measures to reduce the input of environmentally harmful substances.
The task is demanding: The mining and metallurgical industry of the 20th century left behind process and material residues on the land of Harz-Metall GmbH and its predecessor companies. Since the founding of Harz-Metall GmbH in the mid-1980s, we have been intensively involved in the cleanup of soil and water, especially for former dumps and landfills. We rely on state-of-the-art technology and the support of independent experts. Our teams are constantly advised and supported scientifically by external specialists.
Our environmental department systematically monitors several old landfills and informs the responsible authorities at defined intervals.
We report regularly to the Goslar soil protection authority and the Braunschweig state trade supervisory office.
