The history of SARPI-Dorog
SARPI Dorog Kft. (formerly known as ONYX Magyarország Kft., Dorog Incinerator Kft., Pharmaceutical Incinerator Joint Venture) was founded for the incineration of industrial waste generated in three pharmaceutical companies (Richter Gedeon Chemical Plant Plc., CHINOIN Ltd. and EGIS Plc.) in Komárom-Esztergom County. The first test run of the hazardous waste incineration plant took place in August 1989. On 1st January 1993 part of the company got into French ownership. Since 1995 it has been completely French owned. The owner, SARP Industries, with 13 plants in France and several plants abroad, was among the first companies to deal with hazardous waste management. SARP Industries group is part of VEOLIA Environnement Group.
