French industrial waste group opens Warsaw plant as part of PLN 140m investment drive


Chimirec, a French hazardous industrial waste collection and treatment group, on 18 October inaugurated its first plant in Poland. The facility, located in Warsaw’s Rembertow district, was built at a cost of PLN 16m (approx. €3.9m) and employs 30 people.

The group, which serves manufacturing sectors such as automotive, cosmetics, or chemicals, plans further expansion on the Polish market and expects to invest about PLN 140m (€34m) in the country over the next two to three years, said CEO Jean Fixot. Its goal is to have more than 10 plants covering all of Poland’s main industrial regions, handling a total of 500,000 tons of hazardous waste a year. Talks are reportedly already in progress about further investments.

Chimirec sees strong growth potential in Poland due to a combination of tightening environmental protection laws and growing awareness of corporate social responsibility.

Chimirec has 27 approved sites in France and 3 abroad, in Poland, Canada and Turkey.
