Dunkirk, like Antwerp, is becoming increasingly involved with the “circular economy”. Belgium-based Indaver, a leading industrial waste management company handling more than 5 Mtpa of materials in seven European countries, wants to build a new plant on port land at Loon Plage to recycle chlorinated product residues.

Dubbed “Indachlor” the project envisages a €40M investment with projected start-up in 2018. The proposals are subject to approval by the relevant industrial pollution watchdog, SPPPI Cote d’Opale Flandres.

Under the plan, the hydrochloric acid produced by IndaChlor would be transported in a specially-built pipeline directly to a local fertiliser manufacturer, Aliphos, as a new source of raw material.

Equally the energy generated by the IndaChlor processes would be transported by pipeline as steam vapour to local industry.

Indaver is an affiliate of Katoen Natie, the Antwerp-based stevedoring and logistic services company. The company also has proposals for several new plastic waste treatment and recycling plants in Europe.
