Different forms of services
- No payment: the proceeds from the metals pay for the work – we take responsibility for the entire chain and the customer doesn’t get an invoice!;
- Metal recovery: we recover as many metals as possible and the metals always remain the property of the client – focus on maximum recovery of the metals;
- Product development: we make the bottom ash minerals as suitable as possible for reuse – ongoing modification and optimisation of the installation.
Thanks to completely transparent work processes and technical accounting, each of these forms is completely traceable and understandable for our customers.
