econ industries has been operating in the profession of industrial waste treatment for over 20 years. Starting with the mantra “Zero industrial waste…!” we are passionate about working every day towards a cleaner future; creating safe and effective alternatives to landfilling and waste incineration. Developing cutting-edge resource recovery techniques for hazardous industrial wastes is our daily business. The environment is of utmost importance to us, and all of our work is consistently undertaken in accordance with the strictest German environmental regulations.
During the late 1990’s, our first vacuum dryers for soil-remediation went into operation. From the beginning, we were certain that no other desorber technology would be able to deal with such a wide range of feed materials as ours; everything from low-viscosity sludge to soils and building rubble. Today, using vacuum distillation under the brand name VacuDry®, we are 100% committed to providing the best resource recovery method available for industrial wastes and cleaning up contaminated sites.
Our waste treatment technology is able to recover e.g. 100 % of valuable drilling fluids, leading to a profitable hazardous waste recycling process and minimum impact to the environment.
Customers who decide to work with us will have access to the most efficient and cleanest solutions for recovering resources from wastes in the world. Large investments have been made into research & development, resulting in unique patented technologies which help to secure our worldwide market leadership. With the team of engineers, who like to call themselves `econeers´ here we are coordinating projects locally and abroad, working across Europe as well as 30 other countries worldwide.
The econ industries headquarters have been located in Percha/Starnberg, 20 km southwest of Munich, since 2010. The beautiful Starnberg AmmerSee Region in the South of Germany, near the Alps, provides a picturesque and inspiring environment for our team. It is here that the administration, development and project management teams are located, under one roof. For our employees, business partners and our (mainly foreign) customers, Starnberg is an attractive and easily accessible location which offers numerous cultural and recreational outlets.
Here at econ industries, we are passionate about contributing towards the development of a sustainable future society for humanity. We therefore play an active role in supporting many associations working on increasing sustainability in the fields of hazardous waste management and contaminated soil treatment.
econ industries is a proud member of the following associations:
