Plant description

The system is configured as a center for the remediation and the safety recovery of materials and the scrapping of motor vehicles and trailers and for the retention and the recovery of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) ensuring an integrated waste management in order to minimize the impact on the environment and to recover all the materials and energy as possible.
The plant has been designed in accordance with the “regional plan for the area of collection centers for the safety, demolition, material recovery and destruction of motor vehicles and trailers”, for the treatment of approximately 1,500 vehicles per year. It may also receive, for storage and later retrieval, a quantity of WEEE of about 1,100 ton/year.
The industrial site covers an area of approximately 4,900 m2 and consists of two main sections: the first is intended to motor vehicles out of order and the second to the storage of WEEE; the  motor vehicles scrapping area, of about 3,600 m2, consists of two main open areas for the storage of the vehicles incoming and outgoing (destined to pressing/crushing) and a shed in which all the dismantling operations, storage and retrieval of motor vehicles out of order are carried out.
The storage area of WEEE, of approximately 1,300 m2, is instead made up of a single building, in which the incoming WEEE and parts/hazardous waste are stored and where reusable components are disassembled and stored.
Particular attention has been paid to the design of networks of separate waste water (industrial water, rain water and civil wastewater), in order to preserve the environmental matrices involved (soil, subsoil and underground water).
