A picture is worth a thousand words – and this is especially true when the pictures are part of an interesting film. The REMEX Group, a REMONDIS company, is well aware of this and has made a series of videos to explain all about its various operations. Top of the list is its video “Five plants in less than three minutes”, which is available in three languages and gives a brief overview of the company’s mineral recycling activities. The film demonstrates how mineral substances are recycled and highlights just how important this work is. Images are shown of REMEX’s German plants in Erftstadt, Krefeld and Oberhausen as well as of its facilities in Singapore and Sluiskil in the Netherlands. Together, these five locations have the capacity to recycle around two million tonnes of material every single year.
The video includes some spectacular images, many of which are aerial views shot using camera drones. The clever combination of pictures and commentary makes it easy for the viewers to understand what the business is all about and shows the different processes used. This is a great way for people, who have never had the opportunity to tour such a recycling plant, to take a closer look at the complex technology.
A film has also been made of REMEX’s state-of-the-art recycling plant in Singapore, a flagship project across the whole of Asia.
Besides illustrating how these facilities recover valuable metals, the video also focuses on how the company produces recycled aggregate – a product which is primarily used to build roads. It explains how REMEX produces this material by processing incinerator bottom ash from municipal waste incineration plants at its different facilities. The five locations were selected to illustrate the group’s wide-ranging operations – all in all, REMEX has over 60 branches across Europe and Asia.
REMEX presents its business in its film: “Five plants in less than three minutes”
This company video with its images of the five plants is not the only film that has been made. REMEX has produced a whole series of films about recycling minerals. These include, for example, a piece about waste management at the Dutch facility, HEROS Sluiskil. B.V., a video of the inauguration ceremony of REMEX’s recycling plant in Singapore in 2015 and a film about how the company monitors its materials and processes around the globe. Moreover, an informative animated film (available in four languages) explains how the recycled aggregate granova® is produced. All films – including the latest 3D impressions of the company’s technology – can be viewed online on REMEX’s own YouTube channel.
“We decided to make these films because there’s been so much interest in our operations both here at home and abroad. Our goal here has been to make the most of this medium – combining image and sound – to make it easier for people to understand subjects such as how recycled aggregate is produced,” explained Astrid Onkelbach, head of product management and marketing at REMEX Mineralstoff GmbH in Düsseldorf.
Many of the videos focus on the company’s recycling processes and technology.
What has also become clear is that it is not only the professionals and the trade associations that are interested in the whole subject of recycling minerals. “We are getting more and more inquiries from the public sector and from local residents wishing to find out about how mineral waste is handled and recycled,” Astrid Onkelbach concluded. The REMEX films are, therefore, helping to fill this gap here, too.
