HELECTOR is developing solutions for a greener tomorrow in compliance with European Waste Hierarchy using environmental friendly technologies and patents through its German subsidiaries aiming at waste prevention and minimization, reuse, recycling, energy recovery and lastly waste disposal. Via the biological waste treatment with the use of advanced technologies such as HERHOF GMBH and LOOCK BIOGAS it produces SRF, compost and biogas, namely energy from waste.

The experience of HELECTOR so far includes 9 Mechanical Biological Treatment Plants with cumulative capacity of approximately 1.3 million tons, 15 Anaerobic Digestion Plants with a cumulative capacity of almost 213 thousand tons and 7 Mechanical Biological Treatment Plants under construction. According to 2012 data, HELECTOR’s implemented projects regarding landfilling, energy from waste production, composting, sorting and recycling are represented by:


  • an annual energy production of more than 220,000 MWh
