Indaver has extensive experience in remediation projects for hazardous and non-hazardous waste. Indaver’s expertise lies primarily in the analysis and preliminary study of contaminated sites with a view to ensuring safe treatment and removal of the excavated waste. The work and logistics often involve cooperation with external contractors. Depending on the project, Indaver can assume overall management or act as sub-contractor for specific components of the remediation project.
Indaver’s own processing capacity and know-how play an important role in decontamination projects.
Indaver can accept asbestos-containing waste streams at its Belgian landfill site in Antwerp and Doel and can give advice for asbestos waste projects. In situations where there are specific problems, Indaver can advise on the most suitable method of treatment, for instance:
- asbestos cement combined with animal by-products or animal waste (e.g. after a fire in a stable)
- asbestos cement combined with flammable waste (clearance of burnt residues, asbestos- containing floor covering)
- asbestos cement combined with construction and demolition waste
- asbestos cement combined with radioactive contamination

Indaver can rely on years of international experience in remediation projects. In different European countries (BE, NL, DE, Greece) but also in Africa we were in charge of managing different types of excavation projects eg. PCB/cyanide/heavy metal/PAH contaminated soils, Tartank sediment etc.
Clearance after a fire or disaster
Private companies or public bodies may be faced with a fire or other disaster in which burnt, damaged or confiscated products and materials are released that must be removed and treated in the short term. Indaver goes on site to assess and take stock of the situation to draw up a proposal for the safe packaging and removal of the waste released. Where specific screening is required, samples are taken. A proposal for removal is drawn up on the basis of the price, distance and technical and legal possibilities of treatment.
