When ALG Waste Disposal was founded in 88 A.S., it started as a small litter service in New Berlin. The employees earned a living with collecting other’s waste and recycling it to useful goods. The services have expanded to more than pure trash transportation: haulage of dangerous materials like Plutonium and MOX, export of industrial products reprocessed at Dortmund Station or made by Kruger and resource trafficking (mostly metals). Today ALG is one of the biggest companies in Rheinland, competing with the Republican-Daumann cooperation for the prospective assembly of the new Rheinland Bremen battleship class.

ALG is trying to buy up Kruger Minerals to create a giant conglomerate, which would be independent from Daumann resource deliveries and foreign machinery. They will also be able to produce some recently invented Super Alloys locally, which will meet the high requirements of the Bremen engineers without the need to import anything from Liberty. Due to the current war with the Libertonians, this would be a vital advantage in respect of Daumann/Republican.

Nowadays the sphere of ALG doesn't end at the borders of Rheinland. Every one of the major houses suffers from waste more or less. May it be the Leeds system, where irresponsible companies polluted the whole sector, or the old battlefield grounds in Sigma-13, where ALG works together with the Junkers in order to reduce the (often) radioactive scrap metal. All collected resources are retrieved to Helgoland Station or the smelters at the Dortmund Station for either reprocessing or reverse engineering. Some shipyards swear by the ship hull panels made by ALG. The only competitor is the Stokes Smelter in Leeds. But BMM is using outdated production methods which are less cost effective than those from ALG, so customers are confident that ALG will soon own all of this market. Yet most of the funds are coming from trading with numerous, mainly industrial products all over Sirius.

Another important fact is the trading alliance with the Independent Miners Guild and Gateway Shipping. This delineating and dynamic young trading conglomerate is a necessary counterpart to the older and established alliances, such as BMM & Bowex, Republican & Daumann, the Liberty companies and the Kusarian Kishiro & Samura. It's obvious that these big players feel threatened by this upcoming joint-venture. ALG also has developed and tightened strong bonds with the Junkers and the Gas Miners Guild, which tightens the danger for them.

The employees of ALG are heavily involved in their work, because there's a job for everybody. People with neglected formal education are welcome as like as skilled engineers with university degree or researchers, who want to work in a motivated and qualified team. ALG is always in need for a sturdy dustman who is able to fly the big movers full of radioactive waste without crashing into the next battleship. But the company needs also somebody who can do research on the newest composite material or some high-tech weapon prototype, which the transporters may find within the scrap metal.

Unlike many other factions, ALG encourages its workers to participate at the industrial council, which shares the say with the management body. The members of the industrial council are asked before the management decides to start greater projects. It's not surprising that the majority of the employee representatives is voting to merge ALG and Kruger together. The economic advantages for the employees would be overwhelming. Furthermore all workers have several days of holiday available to renew their powers and to cure possible medical damages, caused by nuclear radiation.

Bases of Operations

Dortmund Station, New Berlin

This huge space station houses the ALG headquarters, four smelting furnaces, some smelt-works and a sophisticated steel-mill. When working with maximum capacity, this factory is abled to cover the requirements of the Alster shipyard and the Oder shipyard at the same time. The highly developed reprocessing units are enriching fuel assemblies with gathered components of toxic waste and other radioactive materials.

Helgoland Station, Sigma-13

After the battle at the Yanagi nebula, where the GMG destroyed nearly the whole fleet of Rheinland, wide areas of Sigma-13 contain radioactive waste and a huge amount of scrap metal. This is the reason why Helgoland Station was constructed., brokered under a agreement by Interspace Commerce. Waste disposal vessels are gathering the hazardous ship parts in order to bring them back to Helgoland Station for some analysis where after that the ALG engineers decide what to do with the material. The majority of this waste is transported to Dortmund Station for reprocessing or smelting.

Wuppertal Refinery, Koeln

Wuppertal Refinery is a jointly operated ALG - Kruger station within the Koeln system, dedicated to the smelting and processing of the different metals mined by Kruger or recovered by ALG operations Sirius wide. Originally established in 804 A.S., the base was built and equipped using ALG funds in the midst of Kruger's large financial problems as a perfect solution, owing to the resource rich planetary debris orbiting planet Steinfurt. As the talks of the merger of the two companies took place, Wuppertal was the first station on board which ALG and Kruger staff worked in unison, sharing their experience to mount steady competition against Daumann's monopoly. Presently, the station is establishing substantial refining capacity in order to exploit nearby metal ore resources for high temperature alloy manufacturing. Despite its position around Steinfurt, orbital mining has not yet commenced, though preparations are under way to allow the refinery to accomodate metals mined from the planet's orbit. While the mining and refining operations are in development, ALG has temporarily established a side operation that manufactures newly developed and highly specialised hazardous material containers for toxic waste storage. Long term plans aim for the relocation of HazMat Container production to Dortmund Station, but this requires extensive retrofitting of the station in order to handle precision manufacturing. In the meantime, Wuppertal Refinery has been able to begin turning a profit due to HazMat Containers sales much earlier than ALG's refining plans had expected. The additional capital is being invested in mining and refinery capabilities that ALG and Kruger intend to use to threaten Daumann's current strategic advantage in Sirius' high temperature alloys market. While it is unlikely that Daumann will be able to respond adequately in the marketplace to counter this threat to its manufacturing market share, ALG and Kruger executives are bracing themselves for political battles that Daumann might initiate against them as a last resort.

ALG Hierarchy

Taking care of brokering contracts with other companies, safe guarding the position in the market or enjoying a holiday of a week or two, the President is the one who keeps it all together. His or her valuable knowledge about Sirius offers the work available for ALG employees.

Chief Executive Officer
Controls the internal departments, does the day-to-day grinding papers work the President can't be bothered about. The departments he controls are the security, R&D and financial departments.

Board of Advisors
Most retired, some active in numerous other jobs/tasks and usually trusted friends to the President. Usually 3 positions filled and report only to the President.

Chief Security Officer
Not just for protecting transports, the CSO also maintains the bases owned by ALG, making sure they are in tip-top condition to prevent any disasters.

Human Resources Manager
Hires, fires and controls the employees. Also offers a wide array of internal problem solving solutions amongst employees.

Research & Development Manager
Controls a usually smart and tight team, finding new ways to refine, produce or clean goods and or systems.

No need to explain here. These are the backbone of the company. Without employees the company would have succumb to nothing.

Not full payed employees, trainees got to show their worth. They undergo rigorous training to maximize efficiency and safety.

(// Naming conventions inspired by: MAN and Mercedes Benz Germany.) (// Freighters are to be named after a German village (Wikipedia & Google Maps are your friends). Transports are to be named after cities and/or rivers and lakes.)

All defence/attack vessels (LF, HF, VHF, SHF & Bombers): [ALG]-<pilot name> (e.g. [ALG]-Johan.Diedrich)

Freighters (cargo <1000): [ALG]-TGS-<ship name> (e.g. [ALG]-TGS-Arnstein)

Transports (cargo >1000): [ALG]-TGX-<ship name> (e.g. [ALG]-TGX-Lohr)

Trainees are to append an [R] at the end of their ship's name. (e.g. [ALG]-TGX-Rostock[R] or [ALG]-Rupert.Fritz[R])
