Treatment and selection of waste SA, 2015 

Viladecans - Gavà (Barcelona, Spain)

This packaging selection facility built in Gavà, Barcelona in 2015, is the second largest in Europe.

The processing capacity of the facility is more than 25 tons/year. His specialization is the recovery of light packaging (RELL). The client had two problems. The facility is very close to the Delta del Llobregat (a protected natural area) and less than 150 meters from the sea.

On the one hand, the leachates emitted were reduced to avoid contamination of the area's aquifer.

On the other hand, the level of dust in the environment was minimized, since the plant is in the area of influence of the Barcelona Airport (El Prat).
