The plant is located at 2.6 km on S.S. 309 Romea, in Ravenna and consists of three automatic dry/wet urban solid waste separation lines.
Each of the three lines is divided into two sections: shredding and screening, followed by a common magnetic separation section for ferrous materials.

    Environmental compatibility with current regulations (Legislative Decree 152/06)

    The plant consists of three processing lines: shredding, screening and magnetic separation of ferrous materials.

    1 - Waste receipt and storage.
    The waste arriving at the plant is discharged in the storage pit, collected from crane by bite bucket and unloaded in the mechanical treatment lines.

    2 - Grinding.
    The grinding phase reduces the size of waste in order to make it suitable to the next shredding phase.

    3 - Shredding.
    The shredded waste is separated in: a mainly fine organic fraction (wet fraction) destined for biostabilization in a third-party plant and a coarser fraction (dry fraction) destined for iron removal.

    4 - Iron removal.
    A magnetic separator extracts ferrous materials from the dry fraction in order to be sent to recovery. The dry fraction without ferrous materials is destined to landfill.
