Kuhmichel - Europe's leading blasting media distributor


Recycling and waste reutilisation

At Kuhmichel, we are proud of our ecological outlook. However, we are conscious of the fact that we all need to do more.

We feel that it is everyones obligation to protect the environment. At Kuhmichel,  we are confident that we have made a significant contribution to this cause over the years and with your help many more years to come.

Our goal is to provide our customers across Europe and the UK with the most efficient all-inclusive service available, which allows our customers to embrace the essential requirement to protect our fragile environment.

Our main focus is on the treatment and recycling of:

  • Mineral and metal blasting media waste
  • Grinding wheels
  • Furnace linings from the refractory industry
  • Ceramic and metal coating powders (e.g. plasma spray powder)
  • Waste dust from the abrasives manufacturing process

As a market leader in the waste recycling process we transport and recycle more than 10,000 tons of waste per year. We estimate that this recycling process has reduced the production of CO2 by approximately 30,000 tons each year, thus conserving energy and helping to protect valuable resources.

The experience we have gained over the years by working in unison with other qualified recycling companies has helped Kuhmichel to provide our customers with an economical and environmentally friendly solution to abrasive waste management.

If within your company policy a goal exists to source quality products via a cost effective approach and a desire to be ecologically responsible then you need to be talking to Kuhmichel.
