URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH has been established in 1995 by the owners and managing directors, Peter Heßler and Thomas Gundersdorf.
The business content of URT comprises the engineering, sale and service of recycling plants for electric and electronic scrap (WEEE) and for the disposal of waste refrigerators (CFC). The European regulation WEEE (Waste of Electric and Electronic Equipment) is the basis and guideline for this equipment. For more than 20 years URT has been manufacturing systems for the disposal of cooling units. The recovery and liquefaction of the propellants and refrigerants in the disposal plants have become established processes in Europe during this period. Now plants are also being set up in Asia and South and North America. Frequently these countries do not have suitable plants for the destruction of CFC and the quantities generated during disposal have even had to be transported across continents. This was the reason for URT to develop a new system.
URT can refer to reference plants worldwide on the following continents
- North- America

with representatives in Turkey, Poland, Africa, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Brazil, North-America and Asia.
