Indaver Molecule Management

As a Total Waste Management supplier for large industrial companies, Indaver focuses on projects to safely recover fractions from the hazardous residual waste streams of industrial processes. These are called Indaver Molecule Management projects because they recover high value components right down to the molecular level such as chlorine, sulphuric acid, fluorine, iodine and valuable metals. This is done is such a way that it does not pose a risk to people or the environment. Innovative examples are the facilities for hydrochloric acid regeneration at Tata Steel in Ijmuiden (NL) and Dunkirk (France). In Ijmuiden Indaver has been converting contaminated pickling liquid into hydrochloric acid and iron oxide being re-used in the production processes of the steel and pigment industry. In Dunkirk (FR) the IndaChlor® installation regenerates hydrochloric acid (hcl) from highly chlorinated industrial waste residues. This is done in an industrial symbiosis by which the regenerated hcl is delivered by pipeline to Ecophos - producer of phosphate products to use in its production, the regenerated steam is delivered by pipeline to the neighbouring Ryssen Alcools Distillery.
