Ink cartridges

Ink cartridges from ATMs contain pyrotechnic components. We can also process these responsibly and recycle the residual material.

Frequently Asked Questions

Pyrotechnic recycling by experts

Recycling of pyrotechnic materials should be done responsibly. We have years of experience processing these materials so we know exactly what regulations apply.

These are often products that need to be activated quickly in a very short period of time. Think of airbags, which inflate in 0.03 seconds, and fire extinguishers that must work at the push of a button. But sometimes they involve products that can explode in contact with fire, such as ink cartridges.

No, it is not advisable to recycle products with explosion hazard or pyrotechnic components yourself. Special handling methods are often required to properly process these products so that all hazardous components are properly removed.

Yes, there is a specific permit that companies must have to handle products with explosion hazards or pyrotechnic components. This is called the WABO permit. Airbagrecycling has this license and also has VIHB certification, which allows them to transport airbags and other pyrotechnic parts.
