Rohstoffwerk Weser

Ecologically trend-setting  

Circular economy needs space to separate and sort materials in order to recover raw materials. The Weser raw materials plant in Bremen is a fundamental contribution to sustainable resource production. In addition, our treatment of materials reduces the transport volume by up to 38 %, so that we save on traffic and emissions.    

By connecting to the Weser and the rail network, we can transfer the logistics performance of 500 trucks towards 48 cargo trains or even six ships. In this way, we also save up to 85% of CO2 emissions.    

The following will take place at the site: 

  • Sorting iron and non-iron metals: At the site, we sort, collect and treat unmixed production waste such as thin steel sheets in order to return them to the Circular economy in a reduced form. 
  • Processing of substitute fuel: We use waste from treatment plants to produce qualified fuel that replaces fossil fuels. We do this with the help of shredders, metal separators, screening technology, air classifiers and near-infrared scanners.   
  • Treatment of commercial waste: We use state-of-the-art sorting technology to separate mixed commercial waste back into its individual fractions so that they can be shredded and pressed and returned to the material cycle. 
  • Treatment of waste wood: In our wood processing plant, we remove metals and adhesions from wood, sort and shred it. The waste wood is then ready for further use as wood chips. 

All facilities and areas are planned and implemented in accordance with current legislation and approval guidelines:

  • Safety for people and the environment is guaranteed by modern protective equipment as well as the latest fire alarm technology. 
  • Dust and odor emissions are already reduced to a minimum - through ventilation technology and the closed hall.   
  • Protection against noise emissions is provided by the enclosed hall and the site's elaborate traffic concept.  

Sustainable recycling raw materials for our future 

  • 43,000 m² area   
  • 12,500 m² enclosed hall  
  • 30 new workplaces
