As a pilot project, the Competence Center for Urban Mining and Construction Waste Treatment will lay the foundation for future resource-saving, low-carbon construction. The recycled building materials developed and acquired here will greatly contribute to the establishment of a recycling-oriented system in the future construction industry.

“This project marks the beginning of a ground-breaking use concept. Once the contaminated areas have been rehabilitated and the mineral oil purified, a technical and research facility will be built on the site of the former oil port. Resource reprocessing. A competence center focused on will be energy self-sufficient and climate neutral.
Resource-saving and sustainable restoration
The redevelopment concept for the 13-hectare site foresees the complete relocation and encapsulation of the existing soil reserves on the site. Prior to this, the contaminated site is surveyed to identify recyclable building materials that can later be used as a base layer, for example in the construction of the site. The site is cleared of explosives, the soil is excavated and separated according to mechanical properties, and measurements are taken to determine the concentration of hazardous substances in the soil before further treatment if necessary. We only dispose of waste that cannot be left on site for reasons such as environmental and groundwater protection. The next step is to redeploy the existing stockpile. This greatly reduces the need for trucking and the associated carbon footprint.
