By handling waste for re-use as material we help our customers in the reduction of their environmental load, and their costs.
In our industrial waste centres, we handle and utilise, for example, wastes that are created in the processing of household waste, the waste of construction and service activities, polluted soil, industrial waste, and other wastes.
Typical fractions in energy production and industry with a capacity for re-use are bottom, and fly ashes, sand from ore dressing and sand blasting sands, foundry sands, various types of sludge and dredging masses, fibre clay as well as fibrous slurry and various coarse crushed materials.
We utilise by-products primarily in connection with our present activities, such as environmental construction, construction of roads, open areas, and streets, upgrading the soil, protecting ground water, waste processing, and landfill construction. Some treated by-products can also be used in soil improvement.
We offer improvement services for spoiled areas both as comprehensive projects, and as partial consignments. In comprehensive projects, we are responsible for the success of the job from beginning to end on a turnkey basis. The more challenging and versatile the upgrade target is, the better we are.
We handle projects such as the surface structures of landfills to be decommissioned, the bottom structures of landfills, structures of open areas, pools, and noise barrier, as well as stabilisation work. In addition to contracting, we assist in project planning, surveying, setting timetables, and in structural planning. In structures we utilise materials of the customer as much as possible, and the by-products of industry and different kinds of waste materials. This helps save virgin raw materials and brings waste fractions into circulation as materials.
