Innovative and pro-active for ecological closed substance cycle waste management

Waste oils, radiator coolants, brake fluids, solvents, highly contaminated waste water, solid oily or greasy process media – in the sense of ecological closed substance cycle waste management, the recycling of production residues and hazardous wastes and the resulting recovery of products is just as important as their proper disposal.

Using the latest plants and equipment operated with maximum conservation of natural resources and innovative technical processes going far beyond the current demands of the German Waste Oil Ordinance, KS-Recycling GmbH & Co. KG promotes the recycling of recoverable products and thus makes an important contribution to ecological and economical sustainability. From waste oils we produce today e.g. base oils, lubricating oils, flux oils, fuel oils and regenerate radiator coolants and brake fluids for further use.

Our fleet is also an important environmental pillar. Here we have environment-friendly, state-of-the-art special vehicles with which all liquid and solid wastes are collected and transported cleanly and with minimum environmental impact. We provide our customers with special container systems for local waste collection. 

KS-Recycling GmbH & Co. KG is a company with activities throughout Europe. A few years ago we founded an association of medium-sized companies in order to be able to implement the logistics concept throughout Europe. Our customers can therefore call on our waste disposal services quickly and easily, irrespective of their geographic location. The association also ensures pedigree collection of the wastes received to enable maximum recycling.

Protection of the environment and conservation of natural resources are of the utmost importance to us. For this reason KS Recycling installed an environmental management system in 1997 that is audited and validated by the European Environmental Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS). Every three years the company has all its environmentally relevant activities – the environmental policy, environmental programme, environmental management system, environmental audit and environmental declaration – audited and certified by the German technical inspectorate (TÜV) in accordance with the requirements of the EMAS. Furthermore, KS-Recycling GmbH & Co. KG and the corresponding subsidiaries also has inspections and audits carried out by external experts. These include certification standards such as DIN ISO 9000 ff (Quality), DIN ISO 14001 (Environment), EfB (specialised waste management company in accordance with § 52 Closed Substance Cycle Waste Management Act), etc. The annual audit of the environmental management system is also performed by the TÜV.
