Plant description

Waste entering the plant consists mainly of the undersize deriving from the mechanical pre-selection of undifferentiated urban waste operated within the neighboring mechanical selection plant owned by the proponent (AIADRS No. 248 of 26/03/2009, subsequently amended with DDGNo. 901 of 02/12/2011 and with DDG No. 443 of 10/08/2012).The biostabilization plant is aimed at producing quality compost.

The modification project envisages the creation of a new plant engineering section for the aerobic treatment of the under-cut fraction deriving from mechanical selection of undifferentiated urban waste having an additional maximum potential of 100,000 t / year, equal to about 286 t / day, through aerated piles and periodically turned inside two sheds subjected to forced ventilation and treatment of exhausted tunes.
