Our segments

Green solutions centered on circularity

We as Den Ouden want to do our part for a better world. Life on earth is very dependent on the soil. Our objective is therefore to create a soil that is as healthy and fertile as possible. Our products and innovations are aimed at achieving this objective.

One way we do this with Den Ouden Organic is by collecting and processing green residual streams at our 13 green sites. With these residual streams we can produce high quality renewable raw materials. During the entire process, the maximum sustainable yield is achieved at the lowest possible CO2 emissions. This starts as early as pruning, mowing and/or uprooting the greenery and only stops when the greenery is converted into high-quality and renewable raw materials. We make products such as compost, wood fiber, soil improvers and ground cover.

Sustainable growth 

With us, care for nature is at the center. For this reason, we want our operations to be as sustainable as possible and with the lowest possible CO2 emissions. This already starts with the maximum sorting of the green waste streams. Our goal is to create the right separation in the residual streams to limit post-separation. Separation contributes to a healthier environment and a more efficient process, resulting in lower costs. This approach also minimizes CO2 emissions at our sites.

We also have an extensive and well-maintained fleet of machinery with modern truck (crane) combinations. The equipment is deployed from our efficient and economical network of green waste stream processing locations. Machines that process green waste streams at these locations are environmentally friendly due to their electric and/or hybrid propulsion. This also reduces CO2 emissions during processing.

Innovation begins with experience, creative craftsmanship and daring to think outside the box. As entrepreneurs, this is in our blood. We see, create and seize opportunities. Continuous innovation of our organization and products is our key to success. We also encourage our subcontractors and suppliers to offer better solutions. Together with our suppliers, subcontractors and our skilled and experienced employees, we are able to devise and implement innovative solutions.

The advantage of our organization is that our knowledge is not limited to just the (green) waste sector or the Dutch market. We are active worldwide in various disciplines such as the production of (organic) raw materials and building materials for agriculture, horticulture and road construction, offshore industry, civil engineering, utility construction, green recycling and area development. These broad activities create cross-fertilization between the various disciplines.This cross-fertilization is the food source for our innovation and results in new products, cleaner and more efficient working methods and fewer residual flows.
