The volume of waste generated in Spain is very high and amounts to approximately 48 million tons per year, of which 68% ends up in the landfill. This means that 32% of the waste is recovered or, which is the same, is somehow valorized. We must, therefore, advance in the line of contributing to the recycling and recovery of waste, for the well-being of the environment
According to Directive 2008/98 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of November 19, 2008 on waste, recovery is defined as “Any operation whose main result is that the waste serves a useful purpose when replacing other materials, that otherwise would have been used to fulfill a particular function, or that the waste be prepared to fulfill that function, in the facility or in the economy in general ” (art. 3, paragraph 15)
It is obtained by incinerating some waste according to their flammable content and according to their nature. With them, depending on the energy efficiency levels of the process, we will obtain Solid Recovered Fuel (SFR) or other alternative fuels.
It is the recovery of the original product, in whole or in part, for the production of the same material from which it comes. This avoids the use of new raw materials and collaborates with the sustainability of the ecosystem
