Mineral waste management working aids

Technical working materials

Construction and demolition waste as well as mineral waste from industrial production or municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) represent by far the largest waste stream in Germany and Europe. At the same time, there is an increasing demand for aggregates in the construction industry. High recycling and recovery rates are therefore an important part of the resource-conserving use of mineral raw materials. As the application and utilisation of recycled or secondary aggregates represents a significant challenge due to the scope and complexity of the regulatory framework, we offer our customers and interested parties specific working materials and background information free of charge in order to be able to act in accordance with the Closed Substance Cycle and Waste Management Act.

Handbook on secondary aggregates

Legal and environmental background on secondary aggregates

Now in its 4th edition, this practical reference handbook contains detailed explanations of German environmental guidelines and construction regulations for recycled aggregates and incinerator bottom ash as well as corresponding data for other secondary construction materials such as slag from metal works, steel works slag, iron works slag or waste from hard coal firing. The manual thus provides all the information required to ensure the safe and correct use of secondary construction materials in road construction and earthworks in Germany.
