We are an international Spanish group that is a leading force in the field of integrated resource and environmental management, with our own installations in Europe and Latin America and a presence in Asia, Canada and the Middle East. For more than 25 years, we have been offering efficient, integrated environmental solutions to public administrations and private industry. Today, more than 5,000 companies place their trust in our services. We regard waste not simply as valueless garbage, but rather as a resource with a great potential for reuse and recovery, which will allow us to obtain new materials, energy, space and even biofuel. Our activities and environmental solutions always form part of the search to transform waste into a new resource.
