Basalt quarry as the ideal repository
For over 30 years, the former basalt quarry has been used to store packaged waste that contains asbestos and other mineral waste from landfill class 1 (DK 1). This also includes pressed glass wool – wrapped so that it is dust-tight, shaped into cuboids and installed as packages which are layered up to 2 m in height.
These layers are covered with layers of construction waste material, tile fragments, concrete residues and ash from waste combustion and then compacted using a HAMM H 25i VC crushing compactor. In order to protect the machine operator against harmful suspended solids, the compactor is equipped with special safety ventilation.
