Our Client decided to upgrade the capabilities of a pre-existing waste treatment plant from multimaterial (glass, plastic and metals) separate collection sited in Rocca Cencia in the south of Rome.

One of the main challenges of the project was the tight schedule the plant was subject to, as any maintenance shut down had to end quickly due to the continous flow of waste materials coming from the city.

Thanks to the upgrade, the plant is capable of sustaining a throughput almost four times bigger than before.
