Hazardous waste can easily become a danger to our health and the environment. We therefore collect waste, such as used oil and bilge water from ships, emulsions from the metalworking industry and old paints and their contaminated packaging material, to treat and recycle it appropriately. Such treatment plants render hazardous materials harmless and at the same time generate valuable products.
Chemical-Physical Treatment Plant
Chemical-physical treatment plants deal with liquid wastes. The various treatment techno logies enable the separation of oil and water, the cleaning of oil, the neutralisation of water and the dewatering of sludge. At the end of the processes, plant residues are either landfilled or treated thermally. Nehlsen operates plants of this kind in places such as Bremen (Germany) and Jradou (Tunisia). The Jradou treatment complex also includes a landfill site for hazardous waste.
