The great thing about productivity, efficiency and sustainability is that all three can be illustrated in numbers. We have put together a summary of all of GMVA’s facts and figures on this page. It is well worth taking a look – even if you are not a great fan of numbers.

The ‘17. BImSchV’ [17th Ordinance of the Federal Emissions Control Act] sets out very precise emission limit values regarding pollutant levels in flue gases. All of GMVA’s emission values are well below these limits.
Section 23 of the ‘17. BImSchV’ [17th Ordinance of the Federal Emissions Control Act] stipulates that operators of waste incineration plants must publish all their emission values every year. GMVA’s values can be found below:
