Industrial waste disposal

Zentek can develop a suitable waste-disposal concept for any branch and can take care of your entire waste management needs. Modern, goal-oriented, environmentally friendly, and above all – anywhere in Germany.

Every business undertaking is obligated under Germany’s Circular Economy Act (KrWG) or under the Industrial Waste Regulation (GewAfV) to dispose of the waste incidental to it in a technically correct and environmentally responsible manner – an obligation that Zentek would be happy to assist you with. For more than 25 years, Zentek has been designing tailor-made solutions for waste disposal and taking care of the collection and disposal of the waste materials accumulating at the ongoing business operations of our customers. Thanks to our many years of experience, Zentek can guarantee the legal compliancy of the waste-disposal processes and the quick provision of the necessary recovery documentation.

Our digitised working processes enable you to place and monitor your waste-disposal orders independently and anytime via our online PartnerPortal – quickly, easily, and virtually paperless.

We would also be happy to advise you on how to best navigate the Industrial Waste Regulation (GewAfV), an act that places daunting demands on business enterprises in terms of the documenting and separating of waste materials. Zentek is certain that the appropriate waste-disposal concept will save you time, resources, and waste-disposal costs – while you get more out of your recyclables.


Whether it’s about end-user product packaging or transport packaging – Zentek has the right solution. Legally compliant, cost-efficient, and reliable.

Manufacturers and commercial wholesalers/retailers throughout Europe are responsible for disposing of their waste packaging. This is legislated in Germany in the Packaging Act (VerpackG). According to it, you as a manufacturer or wholesaler/retailer are responsible for the avoidance, recycling, and recovery of any incidental packaging waste. These are tasks that Zentek would be happy to assist you with, starting with licensing right through to the collection, sorting, and recovering of waste materials. The law distinguishes between end-user product packaging and transport packaging.

Transport packaging is any packaging that serves to make transport easier and to prevent damage, and therefore remains in the commercial sphere. You can find the services you need here.

End-user product packaging on the other hand ends up at the consumer’s location. Included here are such things as foodstuff packaging or the packaging used for shipping goods to private households. The licensing of end-user product packaging is the domain of the so-called dual systems – such as the Dual System Zentek, which Zentek would be happy to provide you.
