Purazur is building new water treatment installation for Indaver

Purazur, a DEME Group subsidiary specialising in water treatment, is building a new water treatment installation for Indaver, the Antwerp-based waste treatment company. Purazur is responsible for the design, construction and commissioning of the new installation.

Indaver treats industrial hazardous waste in three rotary kiln incinerators. To ensure compliance with the stringent emission requirements, the flue gases from the incineration process are treated in a so-called wet gas scrubber whereby harmful substances are captured by the washing water. This washing water must also meet rigorous discharge standards. To this end, the washing water will be treated separately in the new water treatment installation currently being designed and built by Purazur. It will replace Indaver's existing water treatment installation, which has reached the end of its useful life.

Pieter Van der Mussele, Business Unit Manager Purazur: "Purazur has extensive experience in the design, construction and operation of water treatment plants for industrial waste water in various sectors. Indaver is an important new client for Purazur, and allows us to consolidate our position as a total solution provider in the field of water treatment."

Jan Timmermans, Project Manager Indaver: “The existing water treatment installation needs to be replaced by a new, more efficient installation to ensure the sustainable treatment of hazardous waste at Indaver."

Construction of the plant is scheduled to be completed by August 2017. After a six-month test period, the new plant will be commissioned in early 2018.
