Sustainable and cost-efficient solutions for your sludge

Sludge originating from your production process or water purification system may not always be the first thing on your mind, but it can seriously disrupt your primary process, resulting in high costs.  To avoid this, a customised solution is needed.

Full service provider

You can subcontract all aspects of your sludge dewatering to Indaver Impex.  Indaver Impex is the no. 1 expert, offering a total solution for your sludge treatment.  Your sludge is dewatered on a fully continuous or project basis, using permanent systems or mobile units.  By dewatering the sludge on your site, we substantially reduce the volume to be transported away.  This saves you transport and treatment costs.Our size, capacity and in-house expertise ensure that we can step in rapidly.

Innovative technology, dedicated staff and the correct chemical conditioning guarantee optimal sludge dewatering. 

Thorough sample analysis in our own laboratory

In order to offer you a customised solution, we map out your process thoroughly in advance, including sample-taking.  In the Impex laboratory, we subject your sludge samples to a comprehensive test programme in order to determine the best formula and dewatering technique.  To improve the dewatering efficiency, additives such as ‘IMPEXFLOC’, from our own line of flocculants, may be used.  We translate test results for you into a specific, practical solution, after which we can get to work on your site.

The best solution for your sludge

Indaver Impex possesses all available dewatering techniques and associated equipment to implement your projects successfully.

Mobile solutions

With our mobile fleet and its innovative technologies, we can dewater the sludge on your site.  Our experienced and trained operators run the sludge dewatering systems and ensure maximum efficiency. Depending on the composition of the sludge, various dewatering techniques are possible. 

Permanent solutions

As well as mobile solutions, Indaver Impex offers permanent solutions for sludge dewatering on your site.  In close consultation and with full transparency, we design and build a customised system in line with your budget.  Our own maintenance department and back-up systems guarantee you maximum operational reliability.  Impex takes care of everything for you thanks to guaranteed continuous dewatering, including operation and maintenance. 

24/7 call-out service

European growth

Impex provides its services throughout Europe and is the market leader in Benelux.  With over 25 years’ experience, Impex has built up a large portfolio of satisfied customers.    We have rolled out successful sludge dewatering projects for a wide variety of industries such as the chemicals, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, steel, construction and foodstuffs industries and water boards.  And we always do so with the closest attention to safety and the environment. 

In the Netherlands, we designed and built a sludge dewatering facility at Tata Steel in IJmuiden that treats sludge originating from a gas washing process.  Tata Steel re-uses the sludge cake in its production process.

For a company in the food industry, we designed and built a system on site that removes the sulphur from the sludge cake so that the cake can be re-used by the fertiliser industry.

Indaver Impex works in this field for:

district water boards and drinking water companies

industries such as the chemicals, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, construction, steel and waste treatment industries

In the United Kingdom, Impex has already built up substantial expertise via various sludge dewatering projects.  For example, in London, two belt filter presses were employed for some months during the remediation of the Aquatics Centre site, where the Olympic swimming pool was later built.  In Liverpool, two decanter centrifuges ran continuously for no less than two years to dewater municipal purification sludge. 

Through our project experiences in the United Kingdom, we keep ourselves fully up to date about the regional and national legislation and regulations and we always work according to the strict quality and safety requirements of our industrial and municipal customers.
