German term or phrase:alimentieren
Prodktionsrückstände werden von der Industrie oder Aufbereitern ***alimentiert***.
As far as I know they have to take care of the residues themselves, in which case 'manage' comes to mind, but it is obviously branch jargon. Is there any equivalent BE jargon?
In French, 'alimenter' often means 'to supply' in a technical context. The big question is whether that would make sense in this particular text. It should be easier for the transator to assess this as she has the entire text in front of her.
Explanation: The French 'alimenter' usually means 'to supply' in a technical context.
It's not possible for me to judge whether this would make sense in your text, but as you have the entire text in front of you, you should be able to see whether my suggestion would fit into the context or not.
