granova® is a high quality processed incinerator bottom ash aggregate (IBAA). Using the residues of waste incineration as a resource, we produce mineral construction materials that can be used as a substitute for primary aggregate. Among the main applications for IBAA are roads and earthworks, concrete production and landfill construction. granova® IBAA is only produced and marketed by REMEX and its subsidiaries, which have subscribed to a rigorous quality control. The REMEX Group in total handles more than 2.1 million tonnes of incinerator bottom ash per year, extracting the metals for recycling and re-using the aggregates as quality construction material.

granova® is unique
granova® differs from other IBAA because of its quality. We are the first producers of IBAA holding the KOMO® certification for use as aggregate in concrete. To achieve this level of application, we have been committed to improving the metal extraction rates and mineral quality. Our efforts are supported by our internal and external research initiatives. The results of these are demonstrated in our significant annual investments in plant technology. We are proud of our determination to ascertain better ways of using waste. This effort is rewarded by the market: we are the only mineral recycling brand serving customers across several EU countries.
