Indaver in Belgium: leading the field in sustainable waste management
Belgium has become a leader in Europe in sustainable waste management. In Belgium, Indaver is a trusted and reliable partner to industries and public authorities for ecologically and economically responsible waste treatment. Indaver is at the forefront of research and development in this area. We offer qualitative solutions to industrial companies and governmental bodies, from on-site management to managing various materials at our locations where we treat a wide range of waste substances using the best technology available.
When drawing up waste management solutions for clients, our primary focus is to recover as much material and energy as possible from the waste process. This is an essential consideration because raw materials and energy are becoming increasingly scarce as the Earth's population grows and demand for fuel and energy continue to increase. At Indaver, we are acutely aware that we must work towards a circular economy that deals intelligently and responsibly with materials and energy.
How we view waste, as a society, plays an important role in achieving this goal. At the moment, there is still a general view that waste is a problem. At Indaver we see waste as an opportunity. This is why Indaver plays a pioneering role as a supplier of high-quality raw materials and renewable energy. It also makes us the perfect partner in a circular economy that includes governments, industry and individual householders.
Indaver is a Europe-wide waste management company that offers intelligent, integrated solutions to Belgian industries and authorities. Our concept of Total Waste Management (TWM) offers a wide-ranging set of sustainable total solutions to (large) industry, while our Public Waste PartnershipS (PwPS) provide tailormade management services to Belgium's public authorities.
The waste solutions we compile for our customers are safe, affordable and sustainable. These intelligent, all-encompassing solutions are based on our extensive expertise in the area of technology, marketing and regulations, our focus on environmental protection and our determination to recover as much energy and materials as possible from waste processing.
Indaver owns and operates a broad spectrum of facilities, supported by a network of trusted third-party facilities. We offer our customers the most up-to-date and indepth advice on best treatment options, administration and reports. All of our systems are set up and run to enable us to guarantee transparency and traceability at every level.
Pace-setter in a circular economy
Indaver is committed to transitioning from a linear economy to a circular economy. A linear economy is one in which raw materials are used on a once-off basis, then discarded. A circular economy is one in which as much material and energy as possible is recovered from waste in an energy-efficient manner, with the lowest possible CO2 emission and with the highest quality requirements. For us, waste is merely one phase in the lifecycle of a substance. What others view as 'waste', we see as a rich source of new raw materials and renewable energy. In the modern world, a circular economy is absolutely essential in order to protect resources and reduce the production of harmful waste. To that end, Indaver is constantly researching innovative ways of extracting more energy and materials from waste.
