Longer-living products
Almost two million tons of electrical and electronic scrap are generated each year in Germany alone. But it is usually much too valuable or too hazardous in terms of toxic content to dispose of on a waste tip or by incineration.

Turning cakes and ale into fertilizer
Many companies, by nature of their business, produce waste material, and what to do with that waste can often cause problems, in terms of both cost and damage to the environment.
