All organic waste streams

Whether it’s alcohol, soft drinks, fruit or vegetables, rejected food, frying fats, frying oil or sludge: Recufood guarantees that all organic residual streams that come to us are processed into an organic waste mix. That waste mix, also called recynergy, is an energy-rich product that is a very efficient ingredient for fermentation plants and green bioenergy.

The destruction and rendering unusable of residual streams or excisable goods such as alcohol is also possible at Recufood under customs supervision. In doing so, we can recover your excise taxes and deposit. In addition, we guarantee that your products will never appear on the market again.

Delivery in all types of containers

At Recufood, we are fully equipped to collect your organic waste with our own transport fleet of tankers and give it a second life.

Thanks to the central location of our waste management company, you can come to us quickly and easily for the delivery of organic waste in bulk or liquids such as beverages and sludge. For this, all containers are possible, such as bulk trucks, containers, gitter boxes, ibc’s (intermediate bulk containers), pallets, drums, water bottles, etc.

Processing of food and beverages in all types of packaging

Recufood is your partner for processing surplus food and beverages in all types of packaging.

Is the food pre-packaged in glass jars, aluminium, plastic, paper or wood? Canned preserves or pre-packaged meals, beverages in kegs, cans, PET bottles with twist-off caps, glass bottles with crown caps or Tetra…. We can process any type of packaging in separate, in-house developed production lines.

Bulk supply of organic waste streams such as sludge is also a popular processing specialty at Recufood. Valorization of water treatment sludges is one of our core competencies where we offer various solutions to ensure constant off-take.

Customs and excise duty recovery

Recufood is the market leader in destroying alcohol/non-alcoholic beverages at our own site in Lummen. We have all the required customs permits for processing excisable goods. We can also provide you with the certificate of destruction.

Recufood is authorized to destroy alcoholic beverages under customs supervision and recover excise duty. Our service therefore includes not only the processing itself of customs goods, but also the provision of certificates of destruction, which is essential to meet all legal requirements.


With our expertise and experience in customs matters, we can guarantee smooth handling and accurate compliance with all regulations. We assure you that the waste goods you entrust to our processing company will be completely destroyed and thus never re-enter the market.

Permits and licences

Recufood can provide you with all required permits and certificates. We hold all the environmental permits and licenses that we are legally required to obtain as a waste processing company. You can consult a list of our permits here. As a dynamic family business, we demonstrate that we do not sell empty words.

Quality organic organic waste mix

At Recufood, we ensure that all organic residual streams we receive are converted into an organic biological waste mix, also known as recynergy. This mix is a powerful and energy-rich product that is highly suitable as an ingredient for digesters and for generating green bio-energy.

Upon receipt, we analyze the energy value of the waste products to be processed in our laboratory. After that quality control, the organic waste is pre-sorted to our in-house developed processing facilities. The waste products are recycled into “recynergy.” The result of that recycling process? A high-quality organic residual stream from which energy is generated in biogas plants.


Organic inflow of food waste

Breweries, liquor shops, food producers, farms, catering companies, supermarkets…. Do you trade in packaged or unpackaged food products, vegetables, fruits, oil, fats or beverages? Then you are our suitable partner for our “organic inflow“.

Organic outflow for biogas plants

Do you have a digester or biogas plant? If so, you will be happy to make use of our fully purified “organic outflow,” the high-quality organic biological waste mix or recynergy that our waste processing company’s accomplished chefs put together.


As a waste management company with several decades of experience in sustainable processing of organic waste, we are a reliable partner. With our customs license, we also guarantee proper destruction of organic customs goods.

We give you peace of mind and the good feeling that your residual streams are being renewed in a socially responsible manner. We strive to excel in flexibility and provide you with a personalized service. With our own fleet of tanker trucks, container transport and pallet transport, we always try to be “at the right place, at the right time.” We have our own quality system and guarantee to provide the best service and quality to all our customers and clients. Creating sustainability is paramount in all our recycling activities.


After a long history, now a real Belgian reference in the fascinating world of organic recycling.

From potato peeler to chef of enery-rich broth

A Dutch “potato peeler”… Recufood was founded at the beginning of the last century in the Netherlands as a company that went out with a horse and cart to collect potato peelings and similar food waste from farms and households. This was then processed into fertiliser and animal feed, among other things.

Pioneer in organic recycling

In the 1980s, Recyfood moved to Belgium and became a pioneer in organic recycling with its innovative technology and extensive, specially adapted transport fleet. Since then, Recufood has become a completely independent, Belgian family business.
