International GIZ project.
Recovering pesticides in Nepal

REMONDIS SAVA collaborated with two other German companies to recover 70 tonnes of pesticides and 5 tonnes of methyl bromide gas in Nepal. REMONDIS SAVA – a fully owned subsidiary of REMONDIS Industrie Service – was the lead company for this project. Some of the hazardous waste was processed directly on site and some was first transported by railroad through India and then from Calcutta to Germany by ship. This project was part of a global tender process put out by the company, Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

All notification forms needed for the project in Nepal were submitted by REMONDIS SAVA which also accompanied the whole process until approval was granted  

Direct on-site treatment of the fumigants

The poisonous, ozone-depleting methyl bromide gas, which had originally been intended for use as a pesticide and for fumigating grain stores, had been stored in 40 rusty steel cylinders. A special waste treatment facility was transported to Kathmandu in order to chemically destroy this gas in situ and transform it into harmless substances.

Incineration of the pesticides in Germany

The pesticides recovered in Nepal were packed into special, UN-approved containers to ensure they could be transported safely to Brunsbüttel

Both experts and equipment from the north of Germany were flown out to this Himalayan country to ensure that the bioactive substances were packed safely so they could be sent by ship and truck to REMONDIS SAVA in Brunsbüttel – to one of the most modern hazardous waste incineration plants in Europe.
