Our emissions are monitored on site and online reports sent to the monitoring authorities responsible

Anything but borderline.
Emission values to be proud of

Our job is not only to ensure that hazardous waste is treated professionally but also to operate systems that guarantee maximum safety levels for people and the environment – and not only now but far into the future, too. Why not take a look at the table below: it lists the latest emission data of our incineration plant side by side with the legal limits laid down by the legislator.

We incinerate hazardous waste in a particularly environmentally friendly way – thanks to our innovative flue gas cleaning concept

Reducing hazardous emissions to a minimum – REMONDIS SAVA also sets its own even stricter emission limits to keep hazardous emissions from the incineration plant as low as possible.

The annual mean values reached by the plant are clearly below the legal limits laid down in the 17th Ordinance of the Federal Emissions Control Act (17. BlmSchV) and those set out in REMONDIS SAVA's Planning Resolution (PR).

* The results are the maximum measured values minus the expanded measurement uncertainity
** The toxicity equivalent (TE) is a total figure for assessing the total toxicity of all dioxins, furans and polychlorinated biphenyls

The content levels of heavy metals and hydrogen fluoride as well as dioxins and furans in the flue gas are recorded at different intervals once a year. Here, too, the figures recorded fall far below the legally prescribed limits.
