Demilitarization & Ecological Disposal

With more than 60 years of experience we can handle excess, outdated and obsolete conven-tional ammunition and ensures the highest stan-dards of safety and environmental consideration within our processes. 

MSM GROUP owns special technology and the know-how to ensure the ecological disposal. There is a lot of knowledge and experience with ammunition disposal and liquidation for Armed Forces of Slovak republic, for Ministry of Defense of Czech republic, Hungary, Bulgaria etc. This know-how and technology can be used for various types of ammunition.

The predominant part of raw materials won in such a way can be profitably re-introduced into the cycle of matter via the professional separation of the individual materials. Only minor residues cannot be recycled economically and must therefore be disposed of in an environment-friendly manner by means of legally regulated special combustion plants.
