Recycling Hazardous Industrial Waste (HIW)

Berrel, hazardous waste, Paprec Group


Hazardous industrial waste can be harmful to human beings and the environment. HIW includes used oils, solvents, paint, batteries, soiled packaging, aerosols, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, phytosanitary products, industrial  sludge…
France produces an estimated 7 million tons of such products.

The Objective

Because they contain materials that pollute the air, water, or soils, special collecting and treatment processes are used for HIW.
Each branch of the recycling industry must comply to their own specific regulations, in terms of responsibility, traceability, and method
