Kirchdorfer and Asamer expand their co-operation in the area of waste recycling
KIAS Recycling takes over 50% of SRB Pöchlarn.
The co-operation between Asamer and Kirchdorfer in the area of the production of recycling material for thermal and material utilization that started in the year 2013 is about to be expanded. At the beginning of July the common joint venture KIAS Recycling GmbH took over 50% of SRP Sekundär Rohstoff Produktion GmbH at the location of Pöchlarn. Jürgen Sacklehner and Reinhard Kerschner were appointed managers of SRP. The owners agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
Expansion with future perspectives
The enterprise is directly situated next to the Highway West and has a production and processing capacity of presently 20,000 tons of substitute raw material and substitute fuels per year that will be used in the cement works of the new shareholders.
“Ecological cement production demands the reduction of CO2 emission that is released when coal is burned for example. This is why we use 80 % alternative fuels today. With the expansion of the co-operation the Kirchdorfer cement works can guarantee on a long term basis a share of the necessary fuels, but also suitable substitute raw materials in adequate quality.“ says Erich Frommwald, CEO of the Kirchdorfer Group.
Klaus Födinger, CEO of Asamer Baustoffe AG points out the advantages of the co-operation: “It is important for our cement works in Slovakia to have a strategic pillar for the supply of alternative fuels in Austria, as Slovakia has not had an adequate landfill regulation yet. Saving fossil fuels means a huge ecological contribution.”
