The company separates valuable components from waste, and then uses the incinerator to convert residual waste materials to stable end product. In the incineration process, the accompanying heat is recovered. Wastes that are not combustible and do not contain valuable metals will be processed to produce inorganic materials to be reused for construction purposes. One signature treatment unit of the company is the development of a new process for waste lighting bulb recycling, which features 95% of waste recycled and reused, particularly the highly toxic mercury is in high-purity that can be sold for reuse.
