Hazardous and non-hazardous waste

As a Full Service Provider, Indaver offers total solutions for both hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams. Crucial in our approach is our waste identification and categorization. For each waste- or side stream, we analyse and classify the type of material; we pay particular attention to assessing its hazardous properties. We then apply haz or non-haz procedures, which are based on EU and national regulations, and on our 25yrs of experience in the field. 

Waste Categorization for adequate treatment and maximum recovery

Based on a thorough knowledge of both waste characteristics and treatment technology, we match each type of waste to its potential treatment methods. We do so according to our 10 codes of good practice.

For non-haz (commodity) materials, we apply existing Best Available Technology (BAT). Our focus in our own facilities is on further improvement of end-product quality, which is mostly achieved through better sorting. 

For haz materials, recycling and maximizing recovery poses much more of a challenge, as we not only take into account the economical value to be recovered from hazardous wastes, but also the need for health and safety to be maintained and the best overall environmental outcome to be delivered.

Finally, if no other option is available, we opt for safe and secure storage, which may include a physicochemical treatment or solidification before disposal.
