Remediation and clearing up
Co-operation among disciplines
To bring remediation projects initiated by the authorities or a company to a satisfactory end, several disciplines must co-operate effectively with one another. The location must be screened and analysed. This usually involves an extensive contracting assignment for the actual excavations. Furthermore, the logistical organisation for the efficient transport of large quantities of materials can be complex. Excavated waste must be treated sustainably and it requires careful consideration of all factors in order to decide on the best option for treatment and safe storage.
Indaver has a specialised team for the management and follow-up of such remediation projects. Initially, it analyses and pre-studies the contaminated sites in order to decide on the safe treatment and removal of the excavated waste. Indaver often collaborates with third parties for the contracting and logistical activities. Depending on the project, Indaver is responsible for the total management of the remediation project or it acts as a subcontractor for well-defined parts of it.
Our own treatment capacity
Our own treatment capacity and Indaver’s knowledge and experience in this area play an important role in remediation projects. In the port of Antwerp, Indaver has various landfills, physicochemical installations and specialised waste-to-energy installations.
Clearing activities after a fire or disaster
Companies and public authorities sometimes have to cope with a fire or other type of disaster in which burnt, damaged or forfeited products and materials must be quickly transported and treated. Indaver evaluates and makes an inventory of the situation on-site in order to draft a proposal for safely packaging and transporting the released waste.
If a specific screening is necessary, Indaver takes samples. Based on the price, the distance, the technical and legal treatment options, we draft a full proposal for removing the relevant materials.
