Some by-products of the processing industries have a higher valorization cost than their actual value. This is typically the case for dusts, sludges, oil-contaminated materials and all sorts of hazardous wastes. The transport and processing of these materials are subject to stringent environmental and legislative guidelines. In 2019 ABO Global took over a French company (SEVT) that is specialized in trading of these types of materials. ABO Global thus has all the knowledge and expertise needed to generate successful solutions for these difficult by-products.
