Optimizing material flows
The experts at PreZero analyze the recycling flows. This starts with the question of which recyclables are generated in which quantities and in which locations.
The analysis results are then used to identify ideal locations for waste containers and make suggestions on how to best separate the waste.
A sophisticated waste separation concept forms the basis for preserving valuable raw materials and reducing the volume of waste.
This means that a suitable container system and innovations are required for each stream of waste and different applications in order to collect the various recyclables separately and as efficiently as possible.
The next step is to prepare the sorted recyclables for efficient transport. To make optimum use of the vehicle loading space, the collected recyclable materials are formed into bales using baling press machines. This reduces transportation costs and lessens the environmental impact caused by superfluous freight traffic.
To protect other road users, all vehicles are equipped with extensive safety packages, including the latest turning assistant and backup assistant technologies. Digital solutions with modern telematics systems also assist with efficient collection. In those areas where PreZero is not yet active, we are organizing collection with a network of small and medium-sized waste disposal partners.
Good sorting forms the basis for the continued use of material flows, so it is especially important to build and expand plants according to the latest standards in this area. PreZero therefore invests in cutting-edge sorting systems that can do more than the current specifications require, as this is the only way of achieving our goal of efficiently closing recycling loops.
