Belgium: GRC Zolder Gets New Environmental Permit

In addition to lightly contaminated soil, GRC Zolder NV now can treat physico-chemical soil, thanks to a new environmental permit issued by the provincial council of the Province of Limburg, announced deme.be.

GRC (Grond Recyclage Centrum) Zolder already had a licence for the temporary storage and biological treatment of excavated soil and other non-hazardous waste such as rubble, dredging spoil, street cleaning residue and sewage sludge. On the 5 ha site next to the Albert Canal in Zolder, a mobile washing installation now makes it possible to also process physico-chemical soils.

The intention is to collect these contaminated soils until there is enough soil to employ the mobile installation,” Plant Manager Emmanuel Govaerts explains.

By working in this way, GRC Zolder NV responds to the societal trend for maximal reuse of waste. Working with a mobile installation also provides the ecological advantage that the ‘cleaning’ can occur as close to the source as possible so that much additional transport is avoided.

From now on, GRC Zolder NV can also receive other additional waste at the site, such as zinc ash, soil ash and asphalt containing tar. Construction and demolition waste including plastics, metal, rubber, wood and glass can also be processed at GRC Zolder NV.
