Building new waste management plants and upgrading existing plants

What is the goal of the investment?

Improve and digitize the management of urban refuse and strengthen the infrastructure for recycling purposes, by modernising the treatment plants (paper, glass, organic, waste water and leather scraps...) as well as the implementation of new ones, so as to fill the gap between the regions in the North and those of the Centre-South.

Additional details

The management system for urban refuse is in today's day and age in Italy very fragile and characterized by multiple infractions in many cities, in particular in the Centre-South where the plants for collection and treatment are frequently inadequate (today approximately 1.3 million tons of refuse are treated outside of the region of origin). Approximately 60% of projects will therefore focus on the municipalities of the Centre and the Southern part of Italy. The proposed investments are aimed at bridging the gaps in waste management related to plant capacity and quality standards between the various regions of the country, with the goal of making up the delays in order to achieve the existing and new targets set by European and national legislation: 65% recycling by 2035, with a maximum 10% of refuse headed to landfills. Innovative plants are also expected for the treatment of diapers and pads (PAD).

What are the benefits?

  • Optimisation of the selective urban waste collection network
  • New treatment and recycling plants for organic, multi-material, glass, paper packaging and innovative plants for particular flows
  • Reduction of illegals landfills
  • Reduction of the gap between the North-South in plants and management of refuse
