Komptech has joined ‘Save the Planet’ 2014
Our future depends on practicing sustainability, which provides intelligent solutions to the current environmental, economic and social challenges that we are facing.
The amount of garbage humans throw away is rising fast and global waste will triple by 2100 if we do not take drastic actions, warns former World Bank urban development specialist Dan Hoornweg and two colleagues.
‘Save the Planet’ is a flagship event in South-East Europe. It will enhance the key role of the innovative technologies for environmental waste treatment and encourage the foreign investments in local economics through new projects, policies and practices.
Vecoplan, EREMA, Gebrüder Paschev, Composting Queen, Ecorec Bulgaria, Weiss, International Baler Service, Anis Trend, BalBok Engineering and HERBOLD Meckesheim have joined ‘Save the Planet’.
In this issue of our e-bulletin we have included:
- an interview with Mr. Josef Heissenberger, CEO and owner of the Кomptech Group and Mr. Ewald Konrad, Senior ASM
- presentations of our event partners – ENEP (Belgium), Recycling International (the Netherlands) and ZIP Magazin (Hungary)

This is a debut for Komptech at ‘Save the Planet. Please present the company and what products will you introduce at the Exhibition?
Komptech is a leading international technology supplier of machinery and systems for the mechanical and mechanical-biological treatment of solid waste and for the treatment of biomass as a renewable energy source. Our products help us to „green the world“. We would like to introduce our full range of technology for shredding, composting and separation.
Who are your potential customers you would like to meet at your stand?
Our potential customers are the companies who collect and treat the waste. They are private owned companies as well as municipalities.
Tell us about green efficiency® programme
After two years of intense development work, Komptech’s contribution to a better environment stands firm.
green efficiency® is an innovation programme that gives our green machines higher performance with lower consumption.
Naturally they also use the latest exhaust technology to save CO2 and protect the environment. Sound paradoxical? Perhaps. But sometimes in life you just have to set your mind to something and do it. As passionate technicians we face up to the challenge every day of making our machines more efficient and thus more capable. Our goal is that every machine that bears the green efficiency® logo really is efficient.
And green efficiency® doesn’t just stand for the exceptional economy, quality and productivity of our machines, but is also an expression of our company culture.
It doesn’t end when we leave the office, but is a personal concern of each of our employees. We want to live green efficiency® as an attitude, so that it moves from strength to strength.
What does green efficiency® mean?
green efficiency® by Komptech is an innovation programme that gives our machines higher performance and lower consumption, and also uses the latest exhaust scrubbing technologies. The most important feature of this programme is higher efficiency in drive, shredding and material discharge, giving higher output per unit energy and thus reducing energy consumption. Naturally this brings users lower operating costs, as well as helping the environment.
What does that mean in practice?
Lower consumption and energy savings do not need to mean lower performance. Quite the contrary, when technological innovations bring jumps in efficiency, both are possible - lower consumption and higher performance. For example, the Crambo direct with its newly developed mechanical gearbox uses up to 35 percent less fuel than diesel-hydraulic machines, but has higher throughput. That means that in 5000 operating hours it uses 90,000 litres less fuel – saving much more than 100,000 euros, and 250,000 kg CO2. Those are respectable numbers – both green and efficient.
What’s behind this programme?
At Komptech, we’re technicians through and through. But we’re not just passionate technicians. We’re also husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, grandparents, friends and so forth – regular people, in other words. And so we want the generations that come after us to say that we considered the consequences of our actions. So green efficiency® doesn’t just stand for the exceptional economy, quality and productivity of our machines, but is also an expression of our company culture.
A highlight in the ‘Save the Planet’ Conference will be the European Conference Day ‘Best Practices in Waste/Resource Management among the EU 28’, organized in collaboration with the ACR+ and ENEP. The speaker lineup will include experts from both organizations and from the European Commission - DG REGIO and DG Environment who will present the key updates and overview future market opportunities.
ENEP is the European Network of Environmental Professionals (previously known as EFAEP - The European Federation of Associations of Environmental Professionals). It represents 22 European Environmental Organisations and over 45,000 individual professionals. ENEP is the leading environmental professional networking organisation across Europe.
ENEP seeks to influence and implement the environmental agenda throughout Europe. It aims to do so by being respected for its adherence to sound, objective science rather than political lobbying but will be proactive where scientific or technical evidence supports it. Where possible it will also use its influence within the wider global context and beyond the European boundaries.
ENEP is uniquely placed to promote and co-ordinate the many and varied aspects of environmental work and environmental professionals but prides itself on its ability to maintain the separate identities of its member organisations.
ENEP believes environmental professionalism is one of the essential prerequisites for achieving sustainability, so we have created a Platform to help build a professional community which promotes knowledge sharing, cross-border integration and an arena to positively influence and implement policy, science and education.
Recycling International magazine is the voice of the worldwide recycling industries. Our monthly magazine combines in-depth articles with latest news stories: from recycling technology and scrap market updates, to reports about individuals and major companies. Over the past 15 years, Recycling International has been regularly reaching tens of thousands of professionals working within the recycling industries.
ZIP Magazin (meaning Green Industry Magazine in Hungarian) is the only professional journal in Hungary specialized in waste management, environmental protection and renewable energy. Continuing the tradition of its predecessor professional magazine, “Hulladéksors”, it is dedicated to all actors of the green industry, including entrepreneurs, manufacturing and service companies, the government, central governmental and state bodies and state-owned corporations, as well as civilians interested in these topics. The journal plays the role of a communication channel between the actors of the field.
ZIP Magazin is read by decision-makers as well as the professional community. As of today, it is a monthly journal, with a circulation of 2000/issue, but according to the plans of the publisher, this will increase in the near future. The journal is distributed by the publisher, based on its own contact list.
ZIP Magazin provides up-to-date information, covering not only the trends of the sector, but also its environment and regulation, the newest technologies. It offers company profiles and regular market analyses, of both the Hungarian and global markets.
News from ZIP Magazine - Trends in Hungary
3 million tons of municipal solid waste was generated in Hungary last year as compared to 3.8 millions in 2008, partly due to the effects of the crisis. As a result, the municipal solid waste and packaging waste per capita is lower in Hungary than in the western member states of the European Union. This reflects a serious lag in the living standard.
And yet, the companies survive. Though their turnover fell in 2009 compared to 2008, but by 2011 it has exceeded the pre-crisis level. One of the probable reasons is that the size of the market is determined, since it is ever more difficult to discard the waste just like that.
According to forecasts, the turnover of the sector is on the increase and will remain so. The reason is that with the growth of the industrial production and of the economy as a whole, the demand for recycled waste materials will increase. Also, there is an EU obligation to increase the rate of recycling. This can also generate an increase in turnover, even if a modest one.
