Cokerie de Anderlues

The coal processing, coking and carbon chemistry activities of the “SA des Cokeries et Houillères d'Anderlues” took place between 1906 and 2002 . On the edge, coal mining was active from 1850 to 1967 . The heap, made up of the aforementioned coal mines, was re-exploited between 1983 and 2002 for the recovery of residual coal.

Closure

After years of production, the installation became outdated and there was no money left to invest in order to meet the environmental and safety requirements. As a result, closed in 2002 and had to let the 13 employees go. The factory was the longest running cokes factory in Belgium. In 2004, a private company bought the place for the operation of a test center for the treatment of minerals. In 2006 restoration of some buildings stopped due to a lack of permits.
