Urban Mining Pakistan

The founding team of BlackForest Solutions has implemented a collection system for valuable hazardous waste in Pakistan. Besides other waste types, this collection scheme covers silver containing waste. After collection and consolidation, the collected quantities were exported, being the first such materials exported in the history of Pakistan. The recovery of the valuables was conducted in European facilities. With this project first project capacities were built in Pakistan.

Project details

Waste collection models

Waste collection systems are usually established for household waste and recyclables, but can also be implemented for valuable and worthless hazardous waste.

Urban Mining

“Urban Mining” describes the fact that urban areas can be regarded as a raw material mine with their daily waste output of various kinds.

Authorities management

For waste projects of any kind, close ties to and support from local authorities are indispensable – thus, the authority communication management is crucial.
