From 1998 to 2017 landfill Hooge Maey was remediated by Intermunicipal Company Hooge Maey, a public-private joint authority created to treat non-hazardous residual waste in an environmentally and economically sound manner at the landfill site of Hooge Maey, located in the province of Antwerp. Sustainability, in all its facets, has always been the guiding principle in all operations of the intermunicipal company. Since 2018 operations were taken over by Indaver.
Hooge Maey treats solid waste, leachate and waste water with maximum care for the environment. Sustainable use of resources and energy is one of the major challenges of our time. Closing energy and materials loops is becoming more and more important . Turning landfillgas into electricity is a good example of closing loops and it is only one of the many ways in which Hooge Maey contributes to a better environment.
