Since most of the available equipment is mobile, the investigation can also be carried out on-site at the respectivewaste treatment plant, for instance in order to characterize specific material streams or to elaboratematerial flow mass balances of a complete process plant. In addition, the department offers a range of advisory services in order to optimize the operation of waste treatment processes. Highlysophisticated analytical tests make it possible to characterize complex material mixtures, todetermine product quality and the efficiency of the treatment process performed.
