From collection to the integrated management of waste, and then on to the recovery of material and energy; for us, this cycle is from the end to the beginning, with a strategic vision that centres on the safeguarding of the environment and applies the best technologies to ensure constant improvement in waste treatment activities.
In a virtuous cycle that transforms it into material or energy, waste becomes a resource.
The recovery of material prevents wastage, guarantees greater sustainability, enables a reduction in the consumption of raw materials and of energy, and in polluting emissions.
The recovery of energy, on the other hand, aims to achieve the maximum exploitation of waste when it is not possible to recover material. This energy recovery goes on in high-performance energy facilities with innovative flue gas filtering systems. These facilities offer numerous environmental advantages compared with landfilling, allowing the saving of both energy resources and the land itself.
Our commitment to the circular economy becomes reality in the exploitation of waste to recover energy and, in the case of cogeneration facilities, to recover heat to be put into the district heating network.
Turning waste into energy with thermal technology is the final phase of our integrated waste management cycle and offers many environmental advantages, making it possible to reduce to zero the use of landfills and to generate new value.
Treatment is totally safe: the waste is carefully selected with meticulous inspection on arrival at the facility and 24-hour monitoring of emissions, which constantly remain well below regulatory limits.
