CO2 performance ladder level 5 certificate

Co-Performance ladder level 5

Riwald Recycling is at the top of the CO₂ performance ladder.

Working sustainably is not just a buzzword for us, but also daily practice. We take CO2 reduction seriously and want to make a contribution. We do this by working on targets that will reduce our CO2 emissions every year. We reduce our CO2 emissions by implementing various energy-saving measures in the office and at our high-tech complex. We measure our performance with the CO₂-Performanceladder.

Recycling of metals partially avoids the production of metals from primary raw materials (ores). This leads to savings in CO₂ emissions compared to production of primary metals. It therefore makes sense in the context of climate policy to ensure that metal is recycled, as this avoids production of metals from primary raw materials.

Last month, we received the CO₂-Performanceladder certificate for both our offices, Almelo and Beverwijk. The CO₂-Performanceladder is a management system of the SKAO (Foundation for Climate Friendly Procurement and Business) and was created to encourage companies to be more carbon conscious. The CO₂-Performanceladder is the sustainability instrument in the Netherlands that helps companies and governments to reduce CO2 and costs, in their business operations, in projects and in the chain.

Riwald container e-waste at Aveleijn in Goor

National Recycle Week

Since 2 June 2022, there has been a collaboration between Riwald Recycling, Slim Opgewekt and Aveleijn. A pilot project has been launched for the collection and recycling of E-waste. E-waste is all waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). This educational project combines awareness about circularity with a physical collection campaign by Aveleijn, with Riwald Recycling recycling these products into renewable raw materials.

What is collected? At day care centre De Roos in Goor, there is a container where local residents can hand in their e-waste including mobile phones, coffee machines, audio and video equipment, ovens, microwaves and fans. The proceeds from the container are for day care centre De Roos.

On Thursday 13 October, Ömer Avci visited Aveleijn in Goor on behalf of Riwald Recycling. Among other things, the recycling process of a washing machine was explained to the clients.

Once again, the Netherlands is extremely dry

Once again it is extremely dry in the Netherlands. We also notice the impact of this at Riwald.

"Normally we do a lot more via barges, at the moment we really have to go to trucks because the water level is too low," said Ewald Huzink, director of Riwald Recycling.

Attached is the full news item on Riwald Recycling from the Nieuwsuur

WEEELABEX (CENELEC) Certificate type 1,2 en 3

Led by Bart van Kessel, a successful WEEELABEX audit was conducted resulting in Riwald being a Type 3 processor in addition to Type 1 and 2!

The procedure for treating and handling e-waste is defined by the WEEELABEX quality standard (CENELEC standards). An organisation can obtain WEEELABEX certification when it can demonstrate compliance with specific requirements when treating and processing e-waste. Certification is via a comprehensive audit and a batch test.

Three types of processors are currently certifiable through WEEELABEX Organisation: Type 1️⃣ Manual processing and depollution Type 2️⃣ Mechanical processing and depollution Type 3️⃣ Advanced and specialised machine processing and depollution

Riwald Recycling is the only one in the Netherlands to hold a WEEELABEX CENELEC Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3 certificate for Large White Goods (LHA) and Small Domestic Electrical and ICT Equipment (SHA).

Expansion of our machine park with the Sennebogen 830E transfer crane

We have expanded our machine park with an electric Sennebogen 830E transshipment crane equipped with the latest innovations for efficient operations. This advanced crane is used during transshipment operations at our granulator, which then granulates and separates the metallic products - ranging from end-of-life electronic devices to railcars and airplanes - from the ferrous and non ferrous metals.

Jarmo Koopman is the operator of the new Sennebogen 830E transshipment crane. ''I followed the crane operator training for three years and after completing my training I had the ambition to drive a large crane. This ambition has been fulfilled within Riwald and I am also grateful to Riwald for this opportunity and role within the recycling process.''

Riwald Recycling and the Week of Circular Economy

In Overijssel many great things are already happening in the field of circularity! In cooperation with the Province of Overijssel, we are happy to pay attention to circularity during the Week of the Circular Economy.

Raw materials are finite and for this reason we must use them sparingly. The Dutch government has set the goal: Netherlands fully circular by 2050, an economy without waste, where everything runs on reusable raw materials.

As a leading metal recycling company, Riwald Recycling plays a pivotal role as a supplier in the circular chain of sustainable material use. ''We contribute to the creation of a circular economy and thus to the achievement of the government's objectives, especially with the prospect of increasing demand for raw materials, virgin materials are becoming increasingly scarce, said Gert Huzink.''

Riwald Recycling obtains CO2-Performanceladder certificate for its Almelo and Beverwijk sites

Our world faces major, complex and urgent challenges. High CO2 emissions are leading to climate change and our natural resources are becoming increasingly scarce. This requires a different way of producing and consuming. By recycling complex products, Riwald Recycling forms a connecting link in the circular economy and we ensure significant CO2 savings in the chain.

Working sustainably is not just a buzzword for us, but also daily practice. We take CO2 reduction seriously and want to make a contribution. We do this by working on targets that will reduce our CO2 emissions every year. We reduce our CO2 emissions by implementing various energy-saving measures in the office and at our high-tech complex.

Governor of Bonaire brings a working visit to Riwald Recycling

Last Saturday, June 19, Riwald Recycling received the Lieutenant Governor of Bonaire, Edison Rijna, on a working visit in Almelo. Under the leadership of Ewald Huzink, Gert Huzink and Bart van Kessel, the Lieutenant Governor of Bonaire and the Mayor of Almelo, Arjen Gerritsen, were shown around the high-tech complex of Riwald Recycling and proudly showed its latest innovations in the field of metal recycling.

''As one of the leading metal recycling companies, Riwald Recycling plays a pivotal role as a supplier in the circular chain of sustainable material use worldwide. Thanks to our experience, our wide range of recycling options and our commitment to environmental, social and corporate governance criteria, Riwald Recycling ranks among the most advanced, respected and trusted recycling companies in the Netherlands and the rest of the world, says Ewald Huzink. ''

We would like to share our vision and knowledge within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, including Bonaire. Bonaire faces significant challenges in the field of (metal) waste processing. Waste processing infrastructure needs to be improved and investments in recycling are a high priority. Due to the urgency and the demand for an even more sustainable waste policy, the Lieutenant Governor of Bonaire, Edison Rijna, visited Riwald Recycling, where Riwald plays an active role in finding solutions to Bonaire's environmental issues. Riwald Recycling links its sustainability strategies to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and integrates innovative technologies for maximum recovery from raw materials. Currently, the first containers with e-waste and scrap are being loaded in Bonaire for transport to the Netherlands, and Riwald Recycling is responsible for the transformation of complex products into pure raw materials with the objective: ''that the Dutch economy would run on recovered raw materials and that no more 'new' raw materials are needed'', says Ewald Huzink.

Sustainable operations with our Fuchs MHL390F transfer crane

Our machinery consists of several cranes, including a Fuchs MHL390F transfer crane, which is equipped with the latest innovations for efficient operations.

Riwald Recycling experts in firefighting

Riwald Recycling has been using the PYROsmart system since 2020. The PYROsmart system is an infrared system which can detect fire at an early stage. Where many other systems assume flames or extreme temperatures, the PYROsmart can detect a starting fire. Furthermore, the software works so well that it can effortlessly detect the difference between a fire and the hot parts of a transfer crane, e.g. the engine, exhaust or brakes. The software analyses the heat sources which are warmer than the alarm sets. On the basis of the temperature, movement and spot size, the software determines whether it is a disturbing object, heating, or a (starting) fire. Riwald Recycling uses the PYROsmart detection system in combination with extinguishing guns, which immediately fire when a fire starts. Thanks to these technological innovations, we stay a step forward in the recycling industry.
