About us

From waste to revenues with Recco metal recycling

At Recco, we experience that many valuable metals, both ferrous and non ferrous, are still discarded with residue aggregates, despite the previous processing of incinerator bottom ash (IBA). In order to recover maximum yields, we have not only developed a sophisticated dry separation method, but we also engineer and manufacture different slag processing installations for our customers. It is our mission to generate the highest possible yields, reducing the environmental footprint as far as metal pollution is concerned. The extra benefit of bigger yields is a more significant revenue from materials that otherwise would have been discarded as waste. In order to surpassingly execute our mission, we offer a full range of technology services for non ferrous metal recycling and IBA processing to our customers and build long-term relationships. We are open and transparent about our investment options, yields, and earnings.

About Heilig Group

It all started in 1978 when N.M. Heilig B.V. was founded by Nicolaas Maria Heilig. The company started out with one welding machine, followed by the maintenance and production of various machinery. These services were the cause of an unrivaled success and, during the years, lead to specialization and acquisition of related businesses in machinery and installations for the bulk handling and recycling industry. In fulfilling our mission to offer our clients full-service in engineering, developing, manufacturing, and installing, we have extended the Heilig Group to what it is today. A group formed by individual companies offering a whole concept of solutions in recycling, waste management, bulk handling, wood processing, heat exchanging, industrial mixing, and electrotechnology. The Heilig Group companies, located in different European countries, compose a powerful and leading conglomerate serving customers all over the world.
