Ecodep carries out the treatment and recovery of plastic and metal waste, even if contaminated with dangerous substances coming from abandoned or maintained industrial plants.
Metals / metal waste recovery
The plant used for the recovery of metals consists of an industrial shredding line that reduces the metal into strips of 5 x 20 cm and subsequently, through a tape deferizer, separates the metal from the impurities that are collected inside the big bags for the transport of waste by a conveyor belt for the next off-site disposal. The purified metal is then transferred to a reclamation tunnel, washed and reclaimed from the substances adhered to the surface.
Recovery and recycling of plastic / plastic waste
Ecodep carries out the recovery and recycling of plastic waste also contaminated by dangerous substances. The treatment constitutes a set of operations – including the placing in reserve of waste and their preliminary treatment – aimed at obtaining, for the most part, homogeneous and recoverable plastic fractions to be recycled and re-introduced in the production cycle (second raw material). The minimum residual part of non-reusable waste is destined for disposal.
