Increased business value
Dr. Andreas Bechmann, Managing Director MAV
"Every new development requires somebody to lead the way. MAV was the first company in Germany to implement the new non-ferrous technology MERIT®."
"My team and I are thrilled with the new HEROS technology. As MAV, we were the first company to set up this facility in Erftstadt, together with experts from HEROS and REMEX.
Within only eight weeks of implementation, we were able significantly increase our metal extraction levels and improve the quality of the processed bottom ash.
The extracted non-ferrous metals are shipped to HEROS in the Netherlands, where they are transferred into a quality for direct processing at the smelting plant.
The MAV group recycles approximately 900,000 tons of bottom ash per year. Therefore, it’s extremely important for us to use innovative and economical technologies.
This project has shown that the new technology can be implemented successfully in an existing processing plant, setting the way for the continuous growth of our group."
