This unique company with it's interesting sintering plant and blast furnaces recycles pig iron from industrial waste material. You will find high-tech and immense know-how inside of the antiquated looking plant: The raw materials are mixed under computer control in order to achive relyable quality of the iron according to the customer's demand. Despite the floating quality of the raw materials, which are in fact waste materials, the experience of the staff guarantees a stable process. Pollution is minimized by modern filter-techniques.
The following photographs were made possible by the support of the helpful and friendly staff of DK-Recycling. I am full of gratitude, especially to Mr. Moore and Mr. aus dem Spring, for the excellent guided tours and the permission to take photographs.
