Stannol has voluntarily committed itself to taking back its customers' solder dross. This means you are on the safe side when it comes to the legally compliant, environmentally sound disposal of your solder waste.

Every production company that processes solder is legally obliged to dispose of the resulting waste products in an environmentally friendly manner. This applies to both leaded and lead-free solders.

The legislator has established the following requirements:

  • The waste must be reported to the competent authority.
  • The production plant is obliged to keep a record of the disposal of the waste.
  • The disposal documents must be submitted to the competent authority.
  • A transport permit must be obtained for each transport of the above-mentioned waste products.

Stannol takes care of the above tasks for you. We handle all the logistics: from transporting the waste products to dealing with the authorities and proper disposal. We are also happy to provide you with appropriate transport containers free of charge.

In addition to disposal, we also offer you the option of reprocessing your solder waste according to your own specifications – entirely within the framework of a resource-saving and environmentally friendly value chain.

  • disposal procedure
    We dispose of your waste products and issue a take-over certificate. After analysis in our laboratory and melting down, you will receive the financial compensation via our scrap metal settlement according to the daily prices of the London Metal Exchange.
  • reprocessing procedure
    We reprocess your solder waste into customer-specific alloys (calculating the reworking costs and deducting the melting loss).

Of course, these forms of reprocessing also apply if you want to shut down a machine, reduce old stocks or replace existing solder baths.

Please note
Melting losses are always to be expected during disposal as well as during reworking. The amount of these losses depends on many factors and cannot be determined in advance.

We will be happy to support you
