Many different types of products still contain mercury. Practically all of them can be treated at our plant in Lübeck (north of Germany). Decades of experience, state-of-the-art technology and the international REMONDIS Group in the background ensure that these substances are safely treated and disposed of in accordance with all rules and regulations.
No matter whether you deliver mercury to us as a liquid or whether we first recover it from your waste using distillation – we are able to stabilise your mercury by transforming it into non-toxic mercury sulfide so that it can be disposed of in underground storage facilities in Germany in line with regulations.
Button cell batteries
Button cell batteries are used in a whole range of technical devices. REMONDIS QR has the technology to separate the batteries according to chemical system (lithium and mercury) and then thermally treat them or send them to external partners for further treatment. By doing so, it ensures that the contents of the batteries can be recovered and recycled.
Devices containing mercury
Thermometers, rectifiers, control & measuring equipment: these products not only contain mercury but other valuable materials as well which we recover and return to production cycles. REMONDIS QR always works with the utmost care – protecting human health and the environment across its operations.
Our recycling system has also been designed to recover mercury from amalgam used by dental surgeries. Amalgam is one of the materials used by dentists for filling teeth. It is not allowed, however, to get into drinking water systems. Numerous dental surgeries rely on our services: for managing their amalgam waste and recovering the mercury from these materials.
Soil and sludge
Once a business has worked with mercury, the substance can be found almost everywhere throughout its premises. We treat mercury-contaminated soil and sludge from your remediation projects.
Activated carbon is used as a filter in many cleaning processes – for example to trap mercury in exhaust gases. We take your contaminated activated carbon – as dust or pellets – and then recover the mercury using distillation systems so it can be sent on for disposal.
Catalysts are often used as a filter medium by industrial businesses to remove mercury from fossil fuels – especially by the oil and gas industry and refineries. All of the spent catalysts treated by us are sent on for further recycling.
NiCd batteries are produced in many different shapes. They contain valuable metals such as nickel that are perfect for recycling. REMONDIS QR recovers all the individual components of the NiCd batteries and sends them on for further processing so they can be reused.
