The recycling industry has developed over the years into a capital-intensive large-scale industry with stringent environmental requirements. We offer complete solutions for recycling iron and metal scrap and other residual products, such as paper, plastic and wood. Regardless of whether you are working within industry, the construction sector or municipal operations, we have well-thought-out solutions for efficient management. We identify needs, listen and try to find improvements. We develop the right type of carriers and ensure that they are emptied at the right time. Järnmalmer processes iron and metal scrap at its own facility in Göteborg; other residual products are dealt with by approved subcontractors.
In partnership with Chalmers University of Göteborg, Järnmalmer has developed a concept called Zero Waste. This gives our customers access via our online portal to real-time statistics about waste, potential deviations, settlements, trend information, etc. Above all, your company or organisation will gain information about how your recycling efforts affect the environment. This information is based on carbon emissions in relation to extraction of primary raw materials. You can see how your emissions compare with those of other companies. Our purpose is to highlight the environmental impact of a business and, by quantifying the amount of emissions, enable them to make changes and introduce efficiencies so that they can operate in a far more environmentally-adapted manner. As a customer of Järnmalmer you will have access to our online portal and the Zero Waste logotype that indicates that you are working to reduce your environmental footprint. You can use the Zero Waste logo to profile your own environmental activities, i.e. show your stakeholders how your business is working proactively with environmental issues in order to limit emissions and become carbon neutral.
In order to find the right markets, Järnmalmer has a strong international network of buyers for our residual products, i.e. iron and metal scrap, and we compete with the strongest players throughout the world. For other types of waste we opt to employ subcontractors who are represented on the local markets and who understand the importance of systematic environmental and quality commitment and rational waste management.
The waste industry is broad, varied and complex. We believe that you cannot be the best in all areas and segments. Our concept is based on taking overall responsibility for the entire waste chain. Through us you have an overall contact for all waste issues. We do what we are good at, i.e. handling iron and metal scrap; other physical undertakings we leave to our partners. The most important thing is that you as a customer get the optimum solution in terms of finance, the environment and procedures that can be easily incorporated into your daily activities.
We take responsibility for the recycling process as a whole.
