New municipal waste management policies were needed due to the constant growth of mineral deficit and energy resources, the increasing amount of household waste as a result of high public and industrial consumer activity
and the rapid human health threat and the environment.
Such policies are mandatory recycling and reprocessing of all recyclable waste, conversion of other waste into raw materials and energy resources and minimization of the amounts of landfilled waste.
The limited resources of our planet and environmental pollution are making more people and companies thoughtful that there is no alternative to humanity other than conserving nature and its resources.
Everyone can do it in their own way - with an educational campaign, with a purposeful policy, with advice, but most of all with a personal example!
Everyone on earth can make a little effort to prolong the life of our planet by even a minute! For example, turn off the light in an empty room, or go to work today on foot or by bicycle instead of a car.
And how about we save one day from our busy lifestyle to clean the areas around our homes or the park we walk and take our children to.
RECYCLING CONSERVES THE EARTH'S NATURAL RESOURCES
Our limited reserves of natural resources are rapidly depleted, especially with the growing use of disposable items and packaging.
The growing level of used and disposed products causes enormous damage to the non-renewable and irreplaceable natural resources of the planet Earth.
The processing of materials used to make new products and packaging reduces the consumption of natural resources.
When recycling millions of tons of waste, millions of tons of ore, coal, limestone, oil and many others we help the planet to preserve its resources.
Through recycled newspapers, magazines, office paper and packaging, millions of trees are saved. Recycling creates the same quality products compared to those that are produced from primary raw materials.
NORDEX WASTE MANAGEMENT collects, processes and recycles waste materials left behind from the population and from the industry.
In this way we perform two main tasks:
- We protect nature from pollution
- With the preparation of waste as raw materials, we save thousands of tons of natural resources - trees, ores, minerals, energy and much more.
When carrying out the work for construction of waste management systems, waste disposal and garbage collection, the company will aim to achieve:
- Supporting the use of modern environmentally friendly technologies in order to limit the amount of waste in the environment
- Maximum waste usage
- Environmentally friendly waste treatment
- Reduction of waste generation
- Reduction of the personal generated waste resulted of the waste treatment
- Observance of the base on environmentally friendly waste management
RECYCLING SAVES ENERGY
Energy saving is a very important factor in protecting the environment because energy consumption requires the consumption of scarce natural fuels and generates emissions of numerous air and water pollutants. The steps for recycling in the industry (including collection, processing and transportation) usually costs less energy than the steps for supply of primary materials (including extraction, refining, transportation and processing).
Additional energy is saved when the recycled raw materials entering the production process have already been processed at least once.
Saved energy using recycled materials instead of primary resources:
- 95% for aluminium
- 85% for copper
- 80% for plastics
- 74% for iron
- 64% for paper
RECYCLING REDUCES EMISSIONS OF AIR AND WATER POLLUTANTS
By reducing the energy intensity of the industry through waste recycling, the amount of harmful emissions is reduced and helps to avoid global climate change.
This is because a huge amount of the energy used in the production and transportation process involves the combustion of natural fuels such as petrol, diesel and coal, which are among the main generators of carbon and other environmentally harmful greenhouse gases. Other additional benefits come from the reduced harmful emissions from waste incinerators and landfills, as well as the reduced deforestation of forests.
In addition to greenhouse gases, recycling can reduce air and water pollution from many harmful substances. By reducing the need to extract and process primary raw materials from the earth, recycling can eliminate the pollution associated with the initial stages of products processing - extraction, refining and processing.
These actions pollute the air, water and the earth's surface with toxic substances such as ammonia, carbon monoxide, methane and sulfur dioxide.
RECYCLING REDUCES THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF WASTE
Recycling reduces the total amount of landfilled waste, which prolongs the life of landfills and thus protects the environment, being a money saving action.
- Recycling reduces the costs of each participant in the chain from the production of goods to their end user distribution
- Recycling reduces the need to extract raw materials - wood, oil, ore, sand, natural gas. It also saves huge amounts of water and electricity
