    A quarter of a century of comprehensive waste management solutions

    Since 1994, we have been helping our customers with the ecological reuse, recycling, energy processing and careful disposal of all types of waste. We assume all responsibilities for you and provide outsourcing of waste management including the related legislation and consultancy. We design, implement and operate wastewater treatment plants and sewage treatment facilities. Our over 200 professionals provide you with 30 neutralization, demulsification and recycling facilities throughout the Czech Republic and Slovakia, supply liquid chemicals to your businesses across Europe, from which they remove waste for ecological processing. The quality of our services is supported in the framework of the PURUM KRAFT Group by innovative recycling procedures and technologies based on our own research, development and accredited laboratories.

    We actively protect the Czech landscape

    If we all don’t start, then who will?
    We have never been a fan of landfilling; we have always preferred secondary waste recovery. In addition to recycling waste materials, we also clean up illegal dumps as part of the voluntary cleaning action Ukliďme svět, ukliďme Česko (Let’s Clean the World, Let’s Clean the Czech Republic). We pedal for miles with colleagues in the framework of the initiative Do práce na kole (To Work by Bike). In the Ministry of Industry and Trade project Přeměna odpadů na zdroje (Transforming Waste into a Source), we rewarded innovative projects that work with secondary raw materials, save primary resources and make the Earth a better place to live. In collaboration with Nadací Ivana Dejmala pro ochranu přírody (The Ivan Dejmal Foundation for Nature Conservation), we support extremely important biodiversity for the long-term, natural and healthy existence of beautiful Czech forests.
