must not be lost
So far only a few facilities in Europe have addressed this issue and have driven the recovery of Iodine forward.
In 2013, together with Häffner GmbH & Co. KG, we founded Rec53 GmbH (view certified waste management facility Rec53 now) and now operate an industrial-scale plant at the Marbach site, where we reclaim the element iodine.
Using various pre-treatment steps we are able to process almost any type of waste containing iodine. A comprehensive waste catalogue provides the proof.
Iodine and its salts are an essential trace element for humans and animals, but there are also various technical applications. Frequently there is residual waste in the preparation of products containing iodine such as in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and this is processed in our recycling plant.
