Norsk Gjenvinning is the leading supplier of waste management services and recycling in Norway, more than three times larger than the closest competitor, due to the broadest range of services and unparalleled geographic coverage. The company operates eight business areas: Recycling, Metals recycling, Downstream trading and logistics, Demolition, Industrial services, Landfill services, Household collection, and Security shredding
Waste is growing exponentially while the supply of natural resources is scarce. With a rapidly growing population, we have no choice but to learn to recover and reuse materials, yet in the OECD only 55% of waste is recovered
How do we solve it?
NG handles 1.9m tones of waste per year, of which 85% is recycled, of which 37% is material recycling into new recycled raw materials. With more than 43k customers and a broad range of services, NG is a critical enabler for the circular economy in Norway. NG is also recognized as a leader within compliance and responsible business practice. NG’s operations result in net CO2 savings of 411k tones yearly. This is equivalent to saving 952k barrels of oil or taking 87k passenger vehicles off the road for a year.
How do we improve?
Industrial innovation and new business models are key to improve the recycling rate of most materials. New solutions such as NG’s new gypsum factory and its investment in the most advanced paper sorting line in the world in 2018, increase competitiveness of recycled materials, preventing further extraction and overuse of natural resources.
NG opens up new markets for recycled raw materials and increases competitiveness of waste based resources through industrial innovative solutions, which ultimately results in the recovery of materials and energy which adds value for NG and the industry. With a strong compliance focus, NG has become a preferred partner for the growing number of responsible businesses and customers.
