As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Marija Brnic writes, last week, during the visit of the Minister of Economy Tomislav Coric, the Croatian company Premifab from Sveta Nedelja, which is the regional market leader in hazardous waste regeneration, revealed that it is continuing to develop and invest 80 million kuna in a new plant in Ivanic Grad, and it has recently taken a step even further.

In cooperation with the Faculty of Geotechnics at the University of Zagreb, the Croatian company Premifab began to develop innovative piece of technology in the development of the recovery of distillation sludge into a useful raw material for further production processes in industry. The value of the project stands at more than 13.3 million kuna, half of which is being co-financed by European Union (EU) funds.

Igor Podravac, the co-founder of Premifab and the director of the company’s business development, associate professor Aleksandra Anic Vucinic and Silvija Petkovic, a PhD student at the Faculty of Geotechnics and the head of quality control and labs at Premifab presented the significance of this project for industry and a more sustainable economy at a conference which was held at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce (HGK).

This was otherwise the inaugural conference of the IRI2 project “The development of new technology for the more efficient recovery of solvents and other types of hazardous waste”, one of 23 Croatian projects in the field of research, development and innovation.

In the five years since it appeared on the market, the Croatian company Premifab has introduced a new standard in the regeneration of hazardous waste by converting as much as 95 percent of waste into raw materials, which it then returns to the shipper in the form of reusable solvents.

It deals mainly the automotive and pharmaceutical industries, as well as in the production of food packaging, and it already recovers more than 1,900 tonnes of solvents per year.
