Indaver - Business of the fortnight

Indaver
Question 1. Can you describe your business?
Partner to our customer’s needs We help our customers navigate the complex and ever-changing waste management environment. Our Waste-to-Energy Facility in Duleek, Meath, provides waste collectors, Local Authorities and industrial waste producers with a local waste-to-energy treatment solution for their residual waste. Partner to the circular economy In a circular economy materials that are recovered from waste are reintroduced as raw materials for their original purpose, or to make new products. Indaver brings waste back into the materials chain as much as possible. We ensure that hazardous or harmful substances stay out of the food and materials chain.
Question 2. What are the advantages of being located in Meath?
Transport links, corporate neighbours and local authorities make it attractive to locate in Meath. Our customers enjoy the motorway access to our site. The Local Authority are very experienced in Community Fund administration.
Question 3. How long have you been located/operating in County Meath?
Indaver has been on site in Meath since August 2008, and operational since September 2011.
Question 4. Why do your customers choose to do business with you?
Indaver is committed to finding sustainable waste management solutions. We work in accordance with the EU waste hierarchy, and find ways of diverting waste from landfill. We regard waste as a resource and find ways of treating it while also protecting the environment and peoples’ quality of life. Since our facility in Meath began operating in August 2011, we have diverted more than 1.5 million tonnes of waste from landfill and produced 630,00MWh of electricity, which is enough to power 154,000 homes.
Question 5. Have you undergone any changes over the lats year?
• H&S: Excellent health and safety record with 5 years lost time incident free in September 2018; • Customer service: we have diverted more than 1.5 million tonnes of waste from landfill, 235,000 tonnes is our target for this year; • Sustainability energy: produced 630,00MWh of electricity, which is enough to power 154,000 homes, 18MW is our average daily target; • Growth: €2 million investment in a residue building working with a local Kells construction company. This will allow a more local outlet to be used providing a more sustainable solution for these residues; • Open door: Over 3 thousand visitors have toured the facility as part of our open door policy; • CSR: Over €1.7million donated to local community projects and winners of the CSR Award at Drogheda Business Excellence Awards in November 2018.
Question 6. Do you have any future plans or promotions coming up?
In 2018 we invested €2 million, there are no plans for 2019.
Question 7. Do you have anything you would like us to promote on your behalf?
Indaver employs a dedicated Community Liaison Officer to facilitate tours of the site. The visit gives a unique opportunity to discover what happens to your residual waste and its importance for the generation of electricity. From January to September this year we have welcomed over 750 visitors to site. Indaver’s facility ensured that the North East region is the first in the country to be credited with having all the infrastructural elements needed for an integrated waste system. In other words, recycling centres, engineered landfill and energy recovery. We believe this is the foundation that initiatives like the Green Fleadh and the Green Schools need in order to help East Meath/South Louth and the surrounding Boyne Valley become cleaner and greener places to live. Since the operation of the facility in 2011, over 50% of our employees live within a 15 minutes radius of the site. This local employment offering also allows our staff a better work life balance. We use as many local suppliers eg consumables, training providers, contractors etc that we can.
