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 purification 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 2018 (including sub-products deriving from the Group’s plant activities).

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

  • Disidrat (Ravenna) – treatment plant for pumpable sludge, shovellable material, ash, soil (authorized for 150,000 t/year)
  • F3 (Ravenna) – incinerator for special waste, including hazardous waste, of industrial origin (40,000 t/year)
