The objectives and the results
What we said we would do What we have done Scope
• Extend quantity-based tariffs for municipal waste to 9% of residents in Emilia-Romagna. Complete the extension to all the municipalities served, by 2021. • Since 1 January 2018, the quantity-based tariff was extended to 5 more municipalities (including Ferrara) in addition to the 2 municipalities currently served, for a total of 9% of the residents of Emilia-Romagna served by Hera. ER
• Increase the recycling rate to 57% by 2020 and the recycling rate of packaging to 74% • The recycling rate was 48% (compared to 47% in 2015), while the packaging recycling rate was 68% (compared to 64% in 2015). ER T M
• Continue limiting the use of landfills:
7% of municipal waste in 2017 and 6% in 2020
• Continue limiting the use of landfills:
7% of municipal waste in 2017 at Hera Group level
ER T M
• Continue limiting the use of landfills:
– design a mechanical biological treatment plant in Pesaro
• Continue limiting the use of landfills:
– the preliminary design phase has been launched and the final design phase is planned for 2018.
M
• Continue limiting the use of landfills:
– building a glass pre-treatment plant in Rimini
• Continue limiting the use of landfills:
– authorization was obtained for the glass pre-treatment plant in Rimini, which will be completed in 2018.
ER
• Complement the waste management offer for industrial customers with solutions in the circular economy and increase the recovery rate of industrial waste. • In 2017, HASI handled over 558,000 tonnes of industrial waste, of which 31% was sent for material or energy recovery (25% in 2016). ER
• Increase separate waste collection: 58% in 2017 and 66% by 2020 at Group level • Separate waste collection at Group level was 57.7% in 2017. ER T M
• Launch a campaign to improve the quality of collected plastic. • The campaign involved all residents in the first six months of the year. ER
• Extend the “Il rifiutologo” app to Marche Multiservizi adding an environmental reporting function • The “Il rifiutologo” app is still under development in the territory served by Marche Multiservizi and will be launched in 2018. M
• Continue to implement projects for waste prevention and to improve urban décor: extension of “Farmacoamico” (increase in the coverage rate to 45% of the residents served in Emilia-Romagna in 2017), relaunch of “Cambia il Finale” and its extension in the Triveneto region in order to increase the volumes of bulky waste sent for reuse. • The coverage rate of “Farmacoamico” has increased to 44% of the residents we serve in Emilia-Romagna, while “Cambia il finale” has been relaunched in Emilia-Romagna, and its extension to the Triveneto region is still under evaluation. ER T M
• Rimini Seawater Protection Plan: complete 1 more project (5 already completed at the end of 2016) and start/continue 5 more projects in 2017. • The conclusion of the further works has been postponed to the first quarter of 2018, while 4 measures are in progress and a further 4 are in the planning stage. ER
• Servola water treatment plant (Trieste): start the new facility in 2017. • The plant was completed and started up with rainwater. Wastewater treatment started in March 2018. T
• Start the authorization procedure to upgrade the Borgheria treatment plant at Pesaro. • The authorization process to upgrade the Borgheria treatment plant at Pesaro started in 2017. M

 

What we will do Scope
• Continue implementation of projects to prevent municipal waste:
– extension of “Farmacoamico” (increase of the coverage rate to 50% of the residents served in Emilia-Romagna in 2018);
– start construction of “reuse areas” at waste collection centres
ER
• Extend the quantity-based municipal waste tariff to a further 100,000 inhabitants in 2019. Complete the extension to all the municipalities served, by 2021. ER
• Municipal waste: increase the recycling rate to 60% by 2021 and the recycling rate for packaging to 70%. ER T M
• Urban waste: continue to reduce landfill use: <5% in 2018 and about 3% in 2021 at Hera Group level. ER T M
• Urban waste: increase separate collection: 60.6% in 2018 and 70% by 2021 at Group level extend the Rifiutologo app in the Marche region. ER T M
• Industrial waste: to supplement the waste management offer for customers with solutions in the circular economy and to further increase the recovery rate.
• Obtain the environmental permit for the mechanical-biological treatment plant for mixed waste at Pesaro in order to further reduce the use of landfills. M
• Start recovering at least 74% of the treated waste in the 5 Herambiente selection plants and install crushing plants in Bologna (in 2018) and Modena (start of authorization process in 2018) to reduce the use of landfills for the disposal of screened waste.
• Rimini Seawater Protection Plan: complete 2 of the projects in progress and continue work on 3 more projects in 2018. ER
• Start structuring water management activities as a result of joining the UN CEO Water Mandate. In this context, reduce water consumption at the Imola cogeneration plant by 40,000 cubic metres (-15% compared to 2017). ER
• Start the upgrade of the sewage treatment sector, in particular by:
– upgrading an urban area larger than 2000 PE by 2018 and of all urban areas larger than 2000 PE by 2021;
– completing the design for 66 urban areas between 200 and 2000 PE in 2018;
– completing the design of 5 plants for over 10,000 PE in 2018.
ER T M
• Launch scenario analyses on the impact of climate change on the supply sources and the water supply network and the subsequent definition of an action plan agreed with public authorities. ER
• Starting the authorization procedure to upgrade the Borgheria treatment plant at Pesaro. M
