AUWA Recycling Bulgaria at 'Save the Planet'

Interview with Mr. Franz Grohs, Executive Manager of the company.


Can you please present your company.

AUWA Recycling Bulgaria is a subsidiary of the Austrian company AUWA Enviromental Technology & Recycling and an exclusive representative of PAALGROUP Germany, SWECO Belgium (M-I SWACO group Florence, Kentucky) WEIMA Germany – which are one of the leading companies in the field of the compacting and shredding technology as well as the particle separation.

Thanks to our solid partnership with those producers, we are in a position to offer complete customer solutions as we aspire to reach best competitive levels in the Bulgarian and CEE market, while we preserve long - term business relationships with our clients.

Now let me present you with our partners:

PAALGROUP is a world class organisation specialising in the design and manufacture of high performance balers and supporting equipment.

The superior design combines unrivalled levels of performance and reliability with the lowest possible operating costs. That makes PAAL channel balers to be Europe’s most popular and economic baling presses.



By supplying more than 30.000 machines which are working even in the most challenging sectors of the recycling industry, PAAL has proved its premium quality standard – always according to the PAAL-principle: QUALITY AND RELIABILITY IN EVERY DETAIL!

SWECO Headquartered in Florence, Kentucky, Sweco® has over 100 service offices around the world.

With some of the most technologically advanced products on the market today, Sweco stands proud as a processing and finishing equipment manufacturer that has led the industry in particle-separation and size reduction solutions.

WEIMA For more than two decades WEIMA has been successfully established as suppliers of reliable shredding and briquetting technology to the market. WEIMA offers individual shredding solutions for paper & cardboard, documents & data, plastics, metals, electronic & electronic scrab, tyres & rubber, organic substances, hazardous waste, wood.

Which of your products and services have the widest application?

The field of operation of PAAL baler is very wide. Starting at recyclables like paper, cardboard and plastics, over agriculture material like Alfalfa, wheat or hay up to non-recyclable materials like Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) or Refused Derived Fuels (RDF), numerous operating companies rely on PAAL-technology at these various applications.

For that reason you can find PAAL balers for example at collecting points and sorting stations, at printing houses and corrugated box factories, at animal feed processing plants, at landfills and at cement kilns, incineration plants and their suppliers.

WEIMA shreds and makes waste valuable! No matter if it is industrial waste, bulky waste, production waste, rejects, paper, wood waste, textiles or carpet.The production of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) is also an important component in waste shredding

The SWECO Round separators have the widest application – The SWECO Vybro Energy Round Separators are widely used in the pulp & paper, plastic, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, mining, mineral and ceramic industries.

Tell us about your projects - recently realized and future ones

Recently the “waste-to-energy”-sector has become more and more important. In times of increasing costs of energy as well as waste disposal, its importance has spiralled upwards very quickly. We have and focus our further activities in this sector.

What will you present at the exhibition?

We will show the range of products and the solutions of our partners.

Focus of our AUWA presentation will be SWECO.

A debut at the Save the planet 2013 will be for our partners PAALGROUP and WEIMA, who plan to expand their activities in Bulgaria.

The visitors will have also the opportunity to participate in the AUWA competition with an iPod as winning prize and test their knowledge about our partners and their products in a short quiz and to take part in the prize draw. The participation in the competition is free of charge and takes using lottery card, which the visitors will find on the AUWA booth – 2-A10.

What are your expectations from the participation?

Due to the big market potencial and business opportunities the waste management sector in Bulgaria needs to accelerate implementation of new technologies and this makes it an attractive investment destination.

We are in contact with some companies, which have old balers or shredders currently in use and we hope to create new business opportunities together. We hope also to obtain some orders and to conclude two contracts during the exhibition.

What kind of visitors would like to make contacts with?

We want to get in contact with the Austrian waste management companies which operate in Bulgaria and in the neighbouring countries. We want to get in contact with Bulgarian small and medium size municipals and private waste management companies to creat new business opportunities together. Further we want to get in contact with bulgarian companies active in the garbage-, used oil- and paper disposal.
