Restructuring: Industrial lithium-ion batteries division

Taking into account new local authority regulations and our focus on the safety of our employees, the community and environment, we will be working with our parent company Saubermacher to newly configure the industrial lithium-ion batteries division. From now on industrial lithium-ion batteries will be accepted exclusively at the location in Bremerhaven. Work on a future-proof solution for the recycling of industrial lithium-ion batteries is already well under way, and the needs of our customers remain firmly at the heart of our endeavours.

Obligation to notify relating to waste management

Special rules apply to transfrontier waste shipments. These were mainly introduced to prohibit illegal export of waste to developing countries. The shipment of waste between EU Member States is regulated under Regulation 1013/2006/EC. According to this Regulation, the exporting and importing state must each obtain a written permission from their responsible authority before any transfrontier shipment of waste. Varoius requirements are to be met depending on the type of waste and method of disposal:

  • Within the EU, non-hazardous waste known as "green list" waste is subject to general information
    requirements according to Article 18 VVA (German Waste Shipment Regulation):
  • Notifiable waste is subject to written notifications and consent according to Article 4 VVA u. A.

If you need help requesting permissions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Waste management is governed by strict laws and legislation. This does not represent a problem for Redux as we are a fully
licensed and certified waste management company accredited to the international quality standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. This certification pays tribute to our efforts
and guarantees our customers that Redux is a reliable and professional partner.
