Presentation

The proper “circular economical vehicle” neithers gets full, nor empty:
Facts, experiences and thoughts on static and dynamic logistics models.

Správne nastavené “vozidlo cirkulárnej ekonomiky” nejazdní ani plne naložené, ani prázdne:
Fakty, skúsenosti a úvahy o statických a dynamických logistických modeloch.

Annotation

Circular Economy – in daily practice, not just as hollow headline – calls for rethinking logistics and going beyond static models
In such dynamic models the distribution hub of commodities will serve as the point of return of the recycables
New software products  will help – to connect products and related raw materials to be reutilized on high levels
The existing distribution hub will be extended with one area as a return point in the circular loop
After this bundling, high-quality recycling can be presented in other borders / larger catchment areas
Efficiency of transport and quality of recycling  – with and without deposit systems – will be increased.

Organization’s Profile

Nehlsen is a future-oriented company with the core business areas of recycling, waste management and cleaning.

Since its foundation in 1923 until today, we have always successfully faced new challenges. Since environmental and climate issues are particularly close to our hearts, we and our approximately 2,500 employees at over 60 national and international locations work daily to provide innovative and resource-saving services.

We offer tailor-made, efficient and inexpensive waste management solutions for every type of waste and have been able to establish ourselves as one of the largest waste management companies in Germany over the years. Due to our innovative plants, we are able to obtain new secondary raw materials from more and more waste, which are made available to industry for various purposes.
