The safe extraction of valuable raw materials: robots automatically dismantle monitors containing mercury, while protecting workers’ health at the same time.
According to initial projections, around three million LCD screens will be recycled in Germany in 2016. However, their backlighting system often contains mercury, which means they are classified as 'hazardous waste' in accordance with the EWC, and as 'Collection Group 3' in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Appliance Law. They also contain...

Mercodor crushing machines are used for crushing production waste and also for the volume reduction of hazardous waste. In order to a better storage of production and hazardous waste the volume must be reduce. Mercodor special engineering is your partner for professional shredding of production waste and for the crushing of hazardous waste.
Pharmaceuticals are now shown to be found in surface, ground, and drinking waters around the world. This could create some potentially damaging environmental effects. Minuscule concentrations of chemicals known as endocrine disruptors, often found in pharmaceuticals, are having detrimental effects on aquatic animals and possibly on human health and development.
The crushing of hazardous waste such as, for example, sensors, refrigerators, toner cartridges and asbestos is a real challenge for every crushing machine from environmental protection point of view. The Mercodor crushers are best suitable for the crushing of hazardous waste such as asbestos, toner cartridges, refrigerators and sensors. We at Mercodor will be happy to advise you on the subject of crushing of hazardous waste.
In the chemical field, ICP-AES is used for a broad range of analysis in order to manage trace amounts of hazardous metals in the manufacturing process, manage additive elements essential to the functionality of a product, and manage the environment of the entire factory. Therefore, it is desirable to have a robust, highly stable system able to reliably accept the injection of a broad variety of samples, regardless of the type of solvent (aqueous/organic) or the presence of matrices. It is also important to...
Compliance with the RoHS and WEEE directives
The Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (ED-XRF) spectrometers offer efficient solutions for the analytical requirements of the determination of regulated substances in electrical and electronic equipment according to the European Directive RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment).
Through GreenWERCS, manufacturers can now drive greener formulations. GreenWERCS analyzes the composition of individual products using ingredient data to examine its potential impact on human health and the environment. It can utilize multiple and configurable pre-identified scoring and weighting algorithms to provide information on the chemical ingredients of the products and indicate whether or not they include:
Transition swiftly and seamlessly from your region`s SDS to the Globally Harmonized (GHS) system for classification of chemicals. Our easy-to-use, webbased GHS Wizard makes it simple for your SDS author to ensure labels and data sheets support safe handling and use of hazardous substances.
SA Eng. designs and manufactures single machines and / or complete plants for the treatment of Hazardous Waste. The supply can relate to the single shredder used only for the volume reduction of the material or to imply the use of a Nitrogen Blanketing System of the machine and / or of the complete system with subsequent separation of the product. SA Eng. provides for the study of customized systems in compliance with the specific need/request of each customer.
The use of polymeric polyols is commonplace in the manufacturing of polyurethanes and other specialty polymers. The hydroxyl number (OH#) is a measure of the concentration of the hydroxyl groups on the polyol. This is an important parameter to monitor and control during polyol production. The laboratory method that is commonplace for hydroxyl number determination is both time consuming and involves the use of hazardous materials. This note will discuss the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the...
Glove boxes are designed for handling both hazardous substances and atmosphere sensitive materials. For controlled atmospheres, nitrogen dry boxes provide an isolated work environment for processing samples or handling air-sensitive materials while maintaining an anaerobic or other gas specific environment within the glove box. For work with hazardous materials, glove boxes provide a leak-tight environment protecting the user from exposure to potentially dangerous materials. Glove box applications include;...
Along with the creation of a standardized SDS, it is just as critical to ensure a seamless process to create hazard labels. Our hazard label software systems is integrated with our SDS authoring engine. The easy-to-use functionality ensures that any updates to the SDSs are reflected on all hazardous labels, ensuring accuracy and consistency.
Waste incineration, including solid municipal and hazardous waste, biomedical waste and hazardous liquid are all continually under more stringent scrutiny by regulators. Macrotek has designed and supplied many integrated systems to meet most guidelines. In several installations, hazardous waste has been combined with radioactive waste, requiring nearly non-detectable emission levels for many of the contaminants. Macrotek has installed and tested systems for these processes with the results significantly better...
