    MSW disposal plants

    The disposal facilities, designed and built by Deco S.p.A., represent the ultimate destination of Municipal Solid Waste
    As a matter of fact, after sorting the waste through Separate Waste Collection, its so-called residual waste fraction is subsequently treated at the Deco S.p.A. MBT plant, whereby the waste is further reduced.
The non-hazardous waste landfill (former category 1A) situated in Casoni, Municipality of Chieti is divided into 4 lots for a total capacity of over 900,000 cubic meters.
The non-hazardous waste landfill (former category 1A) situated in Colle Cese, Municipality of Spoltore, in the province of Pescara, is divided into three lots for a total capacity of over 1,000,000 cubic meters.
The non-hazardous waste landfills (former category 1A) in Tunisia, situated in Monastir, Sousse, Kairouan and Nabeul have a total capacity of 900,000, 1,100,000, 300,000 and 1,750,000 cubic meters respectively.
Both landfills, in accordance with the EC Directive 1999/31 transposed in Italy by Legislative Decree 36/2003, were built by adopting all the technical requirements necessary to safeguard the involved environmental compartments (water, air, soil and subsoil).

They are built on a very low and extremely permeable natural geological barrier, consisting of a few- hundred-metre thick clay layer (natural component), on both the bottom and the embankments supplemented with synthetic 2 mm thick HDPE tarpaulins (artificial component ) and with the leachate  drainage system (built-in component).

The landfills are also equipped with an leachate extraction, transport and storing system, with a biogas capture and recovery facility with electricity and heat production, with a rainwater collection and pre-treatment network as well as with ancillary works such as offices and facilities, weighing plant, weather station, fuel storage depots etc.

A further element that countersigns the landfills concerns the environmental restoration of the site, with the objective of obtaining an area consistent with the designated use, to be performed through reconstruction not only of the natural profile of the area, but also of the final greenery surface coverage with herbaceous essences, typical of the intervention area – Colle Cese landfill is a prime example of this.
