Modena selection and recovery plant

Via Caruso 150, 41100 Modena

  • 1 / 2   Modena selection and recovery plant
  • 2 / 2   Modena selection and recovery plant

Plant for the storage, selection, treatment and recovery of:

  • municipal solid waste (deriving from the separated collection by the municipalities of dry mono- and multi-material fractions)
  • non-hazardous special waste (deriving from artisanal and industrial production activities)

    Type of waste accepted at the plant
    paper and cardboard packaging waste, glass, plastic, tins, wood, ferrous materials, mixed materials, etc.;
    Subsequent destination of waste
    • Recovery consortia: CONAI (COMIECO, COREVE, RILEGNO, COREPLA, CIAL);
    • Material recovery plants: paper, glass, wood, plastic, aluminium, etc.; energy recovery plants.
    Treatment lines
    Recovery efficiency
    60% - 65%

    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 four separate treatment lines:

    • a line devoted to the treatment of mono- and/or multi-material fractions of separately collected municipal waste and non-hazardous special waste (automatic line with optical readers), with subsequent volumetric reduction;
    • a semi-automatic line that sorts the multi-material/bulky part of separately collected municipal waste and non-hazardous special waste;
    • two lines are devoted to the volumetric reduction of incoming mono-materials after quality controls, or the fractions separated in the other selection lines described above.

    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.
