Waste Management

 

We apply the rules of “sustainable waste management” to the waste generated by our factories.

During the first stage we exhaust the possibilities of “internal management” of material waste and then follow the disposal / management process indicated by the law, in cooperation with appropriately licensed waste management companies.

All our effluents, after undergoing appropriate treatment with biological cleaning, are channelled to surface water recipients, without currently being reused by another organism.

Waste utilization

What is the purpose of waste recovery?

Our daily commitment at HERACLES Group is the continuous improvement of the environmental footprint of our activities. We accordingly very early examine ways of balancing industrial demands with the protection of the ecosystems.

By adding value to waste and using it as an alternative fuel or material, we have the potential: To reduce greenhouse gas emissions by limiting the use of non-renewable natural raw materials and fossil fuels (petroleum, coal etc.), to diversify energy sources and reduce energy costs, reducing dependence on the traditional fuel market and benefiting the local community by recycling waste that would otherwise have to be disposed.

We consider that the use of alternative materials and the pursuit of industrial ecology to be two separate, but complementary aspects of our core business. We have developed a highly professional resource recovery process for the extraction of potential materials, which can meet stringent quality parameters required to be used in the production of cement.   

In this manner we prioritise the possibilities of “internal management” of our waste and then follow the disposal / management process indicated by the law in cooperation with appropriately licensed waste management companies / sub-contractors.
