Waste management services

With our circular economy agenda we seek to reduce the need for natural resources, while driving social and economic benefit for our communities and customers.

We are collecting waste streams from industries and households, preventing the use of landfill and reducing its negative impact on society, such as air, soil and water pollution. We transform waste into new products.

Making construction more circular

Driving the Circular Economy, we help our customers reduce their environmental footprint, improving sustainability in the value chain and bringing more value to our customers.

We optimize logistics to reduce delivery times, cost and CO2 from transportation.
