10 candles: Herambiente celebrates its tenth anniversary with a gesture of solidarity


It was July 1st 2009, when Herambiente was born, which takes the expertise and the rich endowment of Hera Group plants into a new reality that is better able to capture the prospects for development in the sector, characterized by a high fragmentation of operators and by a plant infrastructure insufficient to meet the needs of the country. The roots of the company therefore lie in almost 100 years of history, or in the DNA of those municipalities in Emilia Romagna to which the Municipalities entrusted, in the first half of the 1900s, the management of waste and then, over the years, the construction of the plants of urban waste disposal.

Exact ten years of constant growth starting from Emilia-Romagna
2013: four years after its birth, Herambiente starts its expansion in the territories of Padua and Trieste with the acquisition of AcegasAps by the Hera Group, thus acquiring the Padua and Trieste waste-to-energy plants and the Padua storage plant. 2014: territorial expansion continues in northern Italy with the acquisition of the Ecoenergy Srl plant in Castiglione delle Stiviere (MN). Here non-hazardous special waste is transformed into CSS, a secondary solid fuel that feeds thermoelectric, cement and waste-to-energy plants, avoiding the use of fossil fuels. This confirms the company's position as a leader in the recovery of materials and energy from waste, completing the value chain downstream of the usual treatment process.


2016: Herambiente completes the acquisition of some environmental business branches of Geo Nova, which has twenty years of experience in the treatment, recovery, disposal of urban and industrial waste, in particular by detecting the storage plant for hazardous and non-hazardous waste at San Vito al Tagliamento (PN) and the active landfills for non-hazardous waste of Loria (TV) and Sommacampagna (VR). Thanks to this operation, the Group further expands its corporate perimeter in the North East following the logic of developing and strengthening sales in areas where it was already active and thus extending its plant park with a more complete offer for Veneto customers and of Friuli Venezia Giulia.

2017: the acquisition process of Aliplast begins, a leading national company in the collection and recycling of industrial plastic waste and in the recycling and production of regenerated polymers, a decision that testifies to Herambiente's desire to combine its business with the values ​​of the circular economy, with a view to environmental sustainability. With this operation, the corporate scope also extends abroad because Aliplast has offices in Italy, Spain, France and Poland; Waste Recycling acquires Teseco, a leading company in the treatment and recovery of industrial waste, with more than 30 years of experience in the sector of special waste and innovative plants.

1 July 2019: in conjunction with the tenth anniversary, Waste Recycling is incorporated by merger and Herambiente becomes the international leader in the industrial waste sector, with 1 million tons managed per year, able to offer an increasingly complete and personalized service based on the needs of individual customers, be they small or medium and large companies.

Circular economy and sustainability at the center of the choices
As a company specializing in the treatment of urban waste, Herambiente in these 10 years has therefore gradually integrated industrial waste into its business, creating, in 2014, a dedicated company, Herambiente Servizi Industriali. With the subsequent acquisition of Aliplast it then moved towards the production of regenerated plastic. Along this path, by providing innovative services and technologies, the Group was able to make waste a resource, creating a circular economy for the benefit of the communities but also of national and foreign companies of which it is a partner. Together with customers, in fact, high-value services are developed to improve and streamline business processes and impacts, always combining attention to economic resources and sustainability. The increase in the customer portfolio from 370 in 2009 to 3,000 in 2019 is the acknowledgment to Herambiente of being a serious and reliable partner. A result achieved also thanks to the strong investment in the professional development of its resources, which went from 738 to 1,415 in 10 years, through a constant search for innovation and enriching the technical skills of employees.


A gift to Ageop for Herambiente's birthday
For ten years at the service of companies and territory, Herambiente has decided to celebrate this birthday by donating to the Associazione Genitori Ematologia Oncologia Pediatrica - AGEOP of Bologna a van equipped for the transport of children and their families from the AGEOP Houses to the hospital Sant ' Orsola Malpighi of Bologna. The association has been welcoming and assisting cancer children and their families for thirty-five years to improve their living conditions. The AGEOP facilities, where small patients and parents are welcomed for free all the time of the therapies, make it possible to realize the synergy with the Pediatric Oncology Department of the Policlinico Sant’Orsola Malpighi allowing to resort to the so-called "protected resignations". This means that children can be discharged as soon as possible, continuing therapies "at home" and therefore with a significant improvement in their quality of life. When the children are not from Bologna, the AGEOP structures become "their home" and the high standards of hygiene and health with which they are conceived make them a safe and welcoming haven in which to face the therapeutic period without ever being left alone in front of the illness .
