Hazardous waste is used as a collective name for waste which, in the short or long term, causes damage to humans, animals or ecosystems if it is not properly handled. We have the knowledge and the licences required to help you with efficient and safe handling of all kinds of hazardous waste.
For us, hazardous waste is a valuable resource that can be turned into something new and useful. Recycling hazardous waste is good for the environment, but it can also lead to increased competitive advantages for companies and industries.
Today, a large part of the hazardous waste is used for energy recovery or disposed of in landfill sites. This is a waste of resources. We go one step further and make sure it can be recycled and reused in new ways. For example, we recover metal from metal-based dust and purify chemicals in solvents such as oil and glycol so that it can be used again. This helps our customers to move up the waste hierarchy and become more sustainable.
Hazardous waste should always be handled by experts who know what they are doing. At Stena Recycling, we always ensure that our specialists have the right expertise and are trained in safety, new techniques, laws and regulations. Rules and regulations are consatntly updated and the customers' production process can change. This means that we must be alert and prepared to adapt so that we never become dependent on a single method. Thanks to our own facilities combined with a broad network of partners, we always find flexible solutions that can be adapted to new circumstances.
