Industrial Waste Services
Port and port related operations, such as maritime shipping, inland barging, industrial cleaning and tank transport generate vast amounts of waste. MAC² is committed to collecting this waste and to recycle as much as possible back into material loops. As a result, less waste risks being dumped into the environment, and unnecessary use of scarce virgin material is avoided.
A major part of this maritime and port related waste contains oil that can be recycled through physico-chemical processes. In our process plant, we recycle more than 17.000 tons of oil per year from the waste we collect.
The water recuperated during the oil recycling is treated in a multi phased process through physico-chemical treatment, biological treatment, sand-filtering and polishing with active carbon. More than 140.000 m³ of treated water - meeting the sharpest environmental standards - is put back in the port docks and the river every year.
New water treatment plant.
We are currently commissioning the renewal of our water treatment plant.
After 20 years of service, we decided in 2021 to do a major renewal of the water treatment plant.
The goals of this project were to keep up with the ever-increasing legal demands associated with water purification, as well as to double the treatment capacity and to enable handling of more difficult waste streams.
The project was executed by Waterl’eau – www.waterleau.com – a world-leading water technology company and a sister company belonging to Group Machiels.
Thanks to this 3M€ investment, MAC² is ready for another 20 years of state-of-the-art water purification
