The contract involved the design contruction and operation of a solid waste treatmnet plant with a capacity of 75.000 tons of municipal solid waste annually.
The process produces odorless bio-dried material through the following stages:

  • reception
  • bag-opener
  • aerobic process(bio-drying) in controlled aeration areas
  • transfer to the waste baling area
  • metal recovery
  • baling of the bio-dried material

In this way, the baled material finally produced is reduced at least by 25% in terms of moisture. At the same time the material is stabilized and the metals contained are recovered. The baled bio-dried materials are eventually transferred to the Sanitary Landfill Site of P. Galinon, resulting in a significant decrease in the odor, biogas and leachate production caused by their limited biological activity.
