Year Founded:

Organic solvents, whether containing halogens or halogen-free, are indispensable for industry, skilled crafts and textile cleaners. The waste products incurred must be safely transported, disposed or processed. Richard Geiss GmbH has specialised on the competent preparation and recycling of such acquired high-purity distillates in a functioning closed circuit.

This is recycling which truly deserves its name, because it protects resources and minimises the occurrence of problem waste. Our great professional and technical know-how guarantees a high degree of safety, both in processing and during transport in specially designed safety containers.

Our partners can depend on us. This is ensured by a sophisticated QC system, perfect logistics and naturally a highly motivated team of competent employees.

The responsible handling of solvents is a significant environmental objective which is a part of the company philosophy in many businesses. Fifty years ago, concepts such as environmental protection and recycling for these classes of substances were practically unknown.

Entrepreneurial farsightedness as well as an ecological awareness and sense of responsibility characterised the company founder Richard Geiss in his idea and conception for reconditioning and exploiting contaminated solvents.

At first not very professional, without great technical aids but enthusiastic about an idea, which ultimately today represents the almost technically perfect state of recycling of halogen-containing and halogen-free organic solvents.

Today we can assert with pride that Richard Geiss was an environmentalist of the first hour. For him, an idea was not the occasion for great speeches and declarations, but meant immediate action.
The development of the company was again and again shaped by important milestones from the foundation up to today's leading European position.
