post-processing environmental technology

I think your context gives the hint on how to translate this. It appears to concern environmental technologies applied after the production process.
give some sites that use this terminology.

Facilities and technology for environmental cleanup

That's what is basically meant.
"Environmental restoration" could also be used, or "facilities and process technology to reverse environmental degradation", to make it sound a bit more hi-tech.

end-of-pipe pollution control technology

"end-of-pipe" highlights the fact that a pollutant is being reduced and / or removed from the waste stream. This is in contrast to "Cleaner Production" practices where the generation of a pollutant is avoided in the first place.

For a good summary of these terms, check out the essay by the UNEP Working Group Cleaner Production in the Food Sector: "What is end-of-pipe technology?" (first web reference listed below).

Note that "nachgeschaltet" can also be translated as "secondary" in the context of specific technologies, e.g. "secondary waste gas treatment"., www.epa/gov/epa/home (US EPA webpage), Routledge German Dictionary of Environmental Techn
