The KraussMaffei Group adheres strictly to the internationally applicable legal mandates for waste disposal. Monitoring and documenting waste quantities and disposal is the responsibility of the individual company. At the Munich location, a waste representative was appointed for this task. This person carries out a plant inspection at regular intervals. He or she prepares a report once a year in order to monitor and document the technical correctness of waste disposal. During these regular inspections and checks, no defects were found at the facilities in 2015. There were also neither accidents nor penalties that occurred in connection with waste.
At our locations, trash and recyclables are collected in various sorting systems and disposed of by certified disposal firms. We strive to recycle all waste to the fullest extent possible. Waste materials are recycled, disposed of at landfills or brought to combined heat and power stations for thermal recycling. Most of our waste materials consist of nonhazardous waste. Hazardous waste and special waste is collected within the framework of legal regulation and disposed of professionally.
