First rotary kiln in Antwerp
The first rotary kiln for the treatment of hazardous waste is commissioned on Indaver’s Antwerp site. Indaver’s activities begin to take flight, as the second physicochemical plant for treatment of anorganic waste also becomes operational. Physicochemical plant number one was commissioned a year earlier, in 1988. By the end of 1989 Indaver has incinerated its first 1,000 tonnes of waste.
Foundation of Indaver
Indaver nv is founded on October 24th 1985 by the Flemish government and 15 private companies to provide a solution for the waste of the chemical industry. Indaver’s first site is Antwerp, close to Antwerp Port, where its core customers have their activities. Two years later the landfill is commissioned and on October 5th 1987, Indaver receives its first delivery of waste to its Antwerp site.
