In 2007, Indaver Portugal started the operation of a state-of-the-art transfer station at Abrantes Industrial Park. In this transfer station the waste streams are safely stored before being sent for final treatment. The transfer station is licensed to receive all types of hazardous waste, except hospital waste and explosive waste. The installation also has an IPPC license, granted by the Portuguese Environmental Agency (see licenses link).
The transfer station can temporarily store both hazardous and non hazardous waste. The hazardous waste streams are then sent for proper treatment in Portugal or to Indaver’s treatment plants located in other countries in Europe.
Following the transparency policy implemented in the Indaver group, the management of the transfer station is set up to guarantee all our customers full traceability of all their waste streams, from origin to final treatment.
The installation was built according to the strictest hazardous waste and dangerous goods EU regulations, which makes it innovative and unique in Portugal.
