The history of the plant and its changes

TAO AMBIENTE srl started managing the storage centre activity in September 2017, and from March 2020 TAO AMBIENTE became the owner and holder of the license.
The platform is authorized for the storage and treatment of most types of waste present in the EUROPEAN WASTE CATALOG.
Waste storage, treatment, repackaging, grouping and mixing operations are carried out in this plant, to make it recoverable or disposable with the lowest environmental impact possible.

The other types of waste, where possible, follow the same treatment, otherwise they are grouped by similar characteristics and sent to recovery treatment plants for subsequent more specialized processing.

The plant is authorized to collect “hydroreactive” and peroxide waste as it is equipped with dedicated areas for safe storage.

The plant is authorized to treat most of the waste found in the EUROPEAN WASTE CATALOG.
