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
Now in its 7th 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 track ballast, soil, slag from metal works 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.

Countdown Secondary Aggregates Directive!
On 1 August 2023, the Germany Secondary Aggregates Directive (Ersatzbaustoffverordnung) will come into force. This will change the specifications for the use of substitute building materials. With our comprehensive information package, we support users in making the transition to the new regulations as easy as possible.
The German granova® cube shows the resulting areas of application of incinerator bottom ash (IBA) in colour-marked areas across four sides. This enables every user to quickly determine whether project-related conditions for the use of IBA are met in current road construction projects.
The new working materials for IBA in regard to the Secondary Aggregates Directive are part of the German MEB® slider, which can be ordered here.
remexit® classification disc
The remexit® classification disc shows the areas of application of recycled aggregates from CDM waste in accordance with German environmental regulations and construction engineering specifications. By simply turning the disc, it can be determined whether and which recycled material of a certain quality can be applied in earthworks and road surfaces.
The new working materials for recycled aggregates in regard to the Secondary Aggregates Directive are part of the German MEB® slider, which can be ordered here.
Easy-to-use and practical, our pp.landfill slider clearly summarises the assignment values of the German Landfill Directive (DepV) and the Technical Rules for Soil (TR Boden) of LAGA M20. Data that would otherwise have to be taken from extensive tables is always at hand. By selecting a landfill class or an allocation value by using the slider, the eluate and solids criteria relevant for this selection are displayed clearly.
