post-processing environmental technology


Explanation:
I think your context gives the hint on how to translate this. It appears to concern environmental technologies applied after the production process.

Facilities and technology for environmental cleanup


Explanation:
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


Explanation:
"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".
