The plant of DEDISA

The waste management plant of DEDISA began its operation at 2004. It was initially designed to process municipal waste of about 70.000 tones/year. Mechanical treatment relied on two parallel processing lines. There was also the possibility of processing pre-selected waste that were entering through an independent line and were forwarded via a manual film. Manual separation of recyclables was only implemented.

The factory has been renovated and has upgraded its performance in 2015. The investment cost was of 6,7 million euro. The unit was upgraded to a mechanical treatment plant, aiming at 30% increase of production of recyclables. Production is currently 90.000 tons/year for mixed waste and 15.000 tones/year for “selected at source” materials. An optical separator, which is the latest development in the field, has been installed.

The unit achieves separation of solid mixed waste and can recover paper, film PE, HDPE, PP, PET.
