Herambiente acquires Vallortigara Group

The Hera Group has further strengthened its national leadership in the waste management sector, more specifically in industrial waste treatment. The Group, through its subsidiary Herambiente, has in fact acquired 80% of the Vallortigara Group, which provides services to industries, public administrations and citizens and manages a multifunctional platform for special waste treatment in Torrebelvicino (Province of Vicenza in the North-Eastern part of Italy).

The Torrebelvicino platform consists of three sections: a storage and selection plant for solid and liquid, hazardous and non-hazardous industrial waste, a stabilisation and solidification plant for industrial sludge and a chemical-physical plant for liquid waste. Currently, this facility treats approximately 75,000 tonnes of waste per year and, thanks to the investments planned by Herambiente, it will be able to increase and streamline its activities, in line with the principles of the circular economy.

The acquisition of the Vallortigara Group, which employs over 100 workers and has 4,000 customers,both in public and private sector, will enable the Hera Group to strengthen its presence in the Triveneto region. also expand its service to neighbouring territories, creating significant synergies with the Hera Group’s industrial centres in the provinces of Pisa and Ravenna, which have been operational for some time. The current owners (the Vallortigara family) will remain within the new corporate structure.

Overall, through the company Hasi (Herambiente Servizi Industriali), Herambiente now has 18 multi-purpose sites dedicated to treating waste produced by businesses, with 1.3 million tonnes of industrial waste treated each year.

Following the two transactions in the same field, industrial waste treatment, carried out in the first half of 2021 – the acquisition of 70% of the company Recycla in Friuli and 31% of the company SEA in the Marche region – Herambiente’s development plan thus continues, confirming its position as the country’s leading operator in the sector, able to provide across-the-board solutions in industrial waste treatment to an increasing number of new customers.
