Hazardous waste is by definition dangerous to animals and people and must be correctly stored and handled to protect from spillages and allowing for the safe transportation and storage.

Hazardous Waste Systems

Security and sustainability are two sides of a coin. It is now widely understood that preventive investment to protect health and the environment is a lot less expensive than making good the subsequent long-term damage. Thanks to your suggestions and observations, we have broadened our range of products and services.

A look at the information on this page will offer some important advice on the subject, and a catalogue is available to download below.

"Dangerous goods are materials or items which, due to their characteristics or their state during transport or storage, if incorrectly handled, can give rise to dangers for public safety and order, the environment and for the life and health of persons and animals."

The transport of dangerous goods is governed nationally by the – German Regulation on the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road, Rail and Inland Waterways and internationally by the – ADR European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road– RID Regulations Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Rail and the– IMDG Code INTERNATIONAL MARITIME DANGEROUS GOODS Code


Regulations relating to traffic laws, which govern the area of transport by road, rail and sea– Labour regulations connected with technical objectives to guarantee the safety of personnel

– Regulations to protect water, concerning protection of the environment and the safety of our drinking water Standardised containers and installations which already comply with these safety regulations through registration of the manufacturer, to a great extent save the user the expense for proof of suitability of the container, as required for individual installations.

The storage of dangerous materials is governed by the following regulations– German Regulation on Health and Safety at Work– German Technical Rules on Flammable Liquids– German Water Management Act and– German Regulation on Installations Handling Substances Hazardous to Water.
A distinction is made between passive and active storage. Passive storage is keeping flammable substances hazardous to water in tightly sealed containers, which were filled continuously (in one go) and are emptied (in one go) immediately after opening. During passive storage, no action is taken on the containers.
Active storage is keeping flammable substances hazardous to water in containers which are filled discontinuously at the location where they are stored, that is, over a lengthy period of time (collecting tanks), or discontinuously emptied (extraction tanks).
