Voltana selection and recovery plant

Via Traversagno 30, Voltana di Lugo (RA)

  • 1 / 1   Voltana selection and recovery plant

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

  • Non-hazardous municipal waste (deriving from mono- and multi-material dry fractions collected by the municipalities)
  • non-hazardous special waste (deriving from artisanal and industrial production activities)
  • Hazardous waste to be sent for recovery (temporary storage)

    Annual treatment capacity
    90,000 tonnes/year
    Type of waste accepted at the plant
    • paper and cardboard packaging waste, glass, plastic, tins, wood, ferrous materials, mixed materials, etc.
    • scrap equipment and durable goods (computers, monitors, refrigerators, TVs, domestic electrical appliances, etc.)
    Subsequent destination of waste
    • recovery consortiums: 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 three treatment/selection lines:

    • a line devoted to the treatment of glass, plastic and tin fractions;
    • 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-material fractions after quality controls.

    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.

    A semi-integrated photovoltaic plant with a panelled area of 2,341 m² is installed on the roof of the building.
    The photovoltaic plant has a power output of 331.2 kWp and delivers energy equivalent to around 60% of the site´s annual needs.
