The waste arriving at the plant is subdivided by type and subjected to checks on the quality and conformity of the materials. The plant has three separate treatment lines:
a line devoted to the treatment of mono- and multi-material fractions of separately collected municipal waste;
a line devoted to the volumetric reduction of mono-materials after quality controls;
a line devoted to the grinding of the ligneous fraction (wood, clippings and prunings).
On these lines, the waste is put through a series of manual and mechanical operations (optical readers, sieves, magnets, etc.) for selecting the fractions present in the various flows of treated waste, in order to ensure adequate product uniformity of each recovered fraction by eliminating scraps and materials not amenable to recovery. The residue from the selection process is sent for use in recovery plants to produce secondary solid fuel or energy, or for final disposal in a controlled landfill.
