You are always on the safe side when you work with RECHEM. The hazardous substances that are delivered to us, for example, are kept in storage areas specially designed for high-risk products until they are sent for incineration. We are able to store a variety of hazardous products and substances in line with all valid safety regulations and hazard categories (ADR).

As is the case with all industries, pharmaceutical companies are also obliged to document exactly how their waste is handled. We can help you meet all your obligations here, providing support in all matters involving material flow management. From the handling of the hazardous waste on site at your premises, to environmentally friendly transport solutions, all the way through to the safe treatment and disposal of the substances, including all documentation. The fact that we are held in such high regard by the pharmaceutical and chemical industry is a sure sign of how well and how professionally we perform our work.
We know all about the laws regulating our business and are well aware of what has to be taken into account when transporting hazardous waste across borders and disposing of such substances
RECHEM has been collaborating with a large number of pharmaceutical and chemical companies for many years now
We work with a special card system – the RAK system – which we developed ourselves. Each waste stream is given its own card and RAK number. This waste card lists the origin of the waste, details about the substance(s), safety data sheets, UN and VeVa numbers and hazard categories as well as its chemical and physical properties. What’s more, the card includes information about suitable transport and treatment/disposal methods and about which containers and batch sizes are needed. All this is managed digitally in our database. Thanks to this system, each individual batch can be identified at all times. Every single step your waste takes is monitored closely. No system could be safer or more transparent.
We have developed a special range of services for laboratories and other businesses that produce waste requiring special disposal. These services cover the whole of the waste management chain – ending with the safe and environmentally friendly disposal of all types of chemical in our incineration facilities.
