Within Hera Group, the special waste-management chain is managed by Herambiente

At Hera, the flow of special waste treatment is highly structured given the variable nature of this waste that comes from industry, from the treatment of wastewater, from construction, from the commercial and services sector, and from the healthcare sector. Herambiente has over 25 plants exclusively equipped for the disposal of special waste, with around 5 million tonnes managed in 2016 (including sub-products deriving from Group plant activities).

The Herambiente’s plants, as regards special waste, includes, inter alia, plants such as:

  • Disidrat (Ravenna) – treatment plant for pumpable sludge, shovellable material, ash, soil (authorized for 150,000 t/year)
  • F3 (Ravenna) – special waste incinerator, including hazardous waste, of industrial origin (40,000 t/year)
  • HASI waste storage and pretreatment centre (Herambiente Servizi Industriali), Ravenna – facility for special hazardous and non-hazardous waste (25,000 t/year of hazardous waste)
