REKS stands for sustainable disposal
Our lives and economies leave behind residues, some of which are unavoidable. It is therefore all the more important to deal with them responsibly. K+S has bundled its waste management activities together with REMEX in a new company to become even more efficient in the demanding waste management market: REKS GmbH & Co. KG. As a certified specialist waste management company, REKS provides solutions in the areas of disposal, covering of potash tailings piles, as well as complete services relating to the recycling of saline aluminum slag.
The right solution for your requirements
The characteristics of your waste determine the best way of disposal. REKS will find the best solution for you. Thanks to the unique and diverse infrastructure of K+S and REMEX, REKS offers its customers an extraordinary range of disposal options.
The safest place for environmentally hazardous waste is one of our underground waste disposal sites. In disused sections of our potash mines, the materials are isolated from the biosphere by layers of rock and salt several hundred meters thick, waterproof and gas-tight. With the two K+S underground waste disposal sites Herfa-Neurode and Zielitz, REKS offers you both enormous capacity and flexible delivery options.
Disposal & benefits
Underground recovery is the best available technology for an optimal combination of benefit and disposal. We utilize the structural-physical properties of less contaminated waste to secure areas of mines at risk of subsidence. As a joint venture between K+S and REMEX, REKS has decades of steadily growing expertise in underground recovery. Depending on the properties of the waste and the nature of the cavity to be backfilled, the methods of stacking backfill, slurry backfill and drop backfill are used.
Use every element
REKS is the only company to offer the secondary aluminum industry a complete package: the supply of high-quality smelting salts, the recycling of the salt slag, the extraction of aluminum granulate and the disposal of aluminum filter dust. With REKS you have one contact for all questions concerning the REKAL business.
New habitat emerges
The extraction of potash salts produces solid residues which are stockpiled in accordance with the state of the art technology. As compensation for the impact on nature, REKS, together with K+S, is committed to the recultivation of the potash tailings piles. By recycling residual materials in the cover layers, natural resources and landfill capacities are conserved - and, at the same time, an ecologically valuable project for the promotion of biodiversity is created.
