Operations start at the Hannover Recyclables
Center (HWG)

Less than two years have passed since the groundbreaking ceremony in December 2020. Now, the Hagedorn Group of Companies opened the Hanover Recyclables Center (HWG) at the end of April. In the three recyclables halls with a total area of 13 000 m², 84 types of waste, including building materials and mineral waste, can be treated, recycled and disposed of. Hagedorn is thus putting another high-performance site into operation.

The Group is thus taking account of developments in society as a whole. After all, recycling management is also becoming increasingly important within the construction industry. Thanks to precise analyses of the specific waste quantities, the HWG enables a maximum of waste to be recycled and building materials to be efficiently recycled. In addition, the construction of the plant is the result of Hagedorn‘s very good growth, especially in the Hanover area, and underlines the group‘s ambitions for northern Germany. The operator of the plant is Hannoveraner Wertstoffzentrum GmbH, a company of the Hagedorn Group.

"With the new recyclables center, we are also increasing our capacities in northern Germany. This is important because Hagedorn, as an all-round service provider with comprehensive materials flow management, can thus provide valuable recycling capacities, and with the HWG we can not only cover our own needs but also meet all market requests from the Hanover region,“ explains Frank Röschard, HWG Managing Director.

Trimodal connection

The new recycling center is designed according to the latest standards and has a trimodal connection as a unique selling point: materials can be delivered by truck, rail or ship. This ensures efficient transport routes and makes an effective contribution to reducing traffic-related emissions.

In 2017, the Hagedorn Group took over the site on the county road, dismantled the buildings and revitalized the area. Previously, around 55 000 tons of high-performance carbon black were produced here at Misburger Hafen every year. For more than 20 years, the site served as a carbon black refinery for Columbian Carbon Deutschland GmbH. The opening of the new recycling center marks the beginning of a new era. The development of the site will be finalized in the third quarter of this year with the completion of the new administration and workshop of Hagedorn Hannover GmbH. The new headquarters for Hanover will be built on the 6000 m² neighboring property.

With the completed construction of the new recyclables center, the Hagedorn Group is taking another big step towards the future. "With the HWG, we are once again setting standards and making a further contribution to achieving our socially set sustainability goals 2030. Recycling is becoming the new norm and this is in line with our aspirations,“ says Alfred Winkelmann, Head of the Waste Management Division at the Hagedorn Group of Companies.
