Waste disposal and waste management
At Amprion, waste management is all about avoidance – and if we are unable to avoid waste, we try to find ways to reuse or recycle. All unavoidable wastes are collected separately and disposed of in compliance with the legal requirements. Typical wastes generated by transmission system operators include steel-reinforced aluminium conductors, copper, steel and insulating oils, and we have developed appropriate recovery channels for each of these wastes.
We employ a waste balance sheet to record all waste-related data, such as the type, quantity and whereabouts of the wastes, which we regularly evaluate. This enables us to operate a very responsible waste management regime and to present our data to the authorities in a transparent way.
