Mobile waste treatment plants

Recovery and treatment of solid waste with mobile plant

We own mobile plants for the recovery and treatment of non-hazardous and hazardous special solid wastes of the following types:

  • crushing;
  • screening.

The mobile plants are structures that can be easily moved from one place to another to efficiently and promptly manage waste generated in different geographical areas. Gesteco carries out on-site treatments aimed at ensuring subsequent recovery of solid waste, mainly aggregates from construction and demolition operations.

We have equipped ourselves with these plants to provide flexible and convenient solutions for waste treatment in locations where permanent treatment plants are not available, or where a temporary solution is required.

The usage contexts

For the treatment of waste, mobile plants can be used in a range of contexts, including remote areas, sites of emergency following natural disasters or accidents, temporary events, or situations in which a quick intervention is needed to manage waste efficiently and sustainably.

The obligations related to their use

The mobile plants can be used to carry out individual campaigns of activities in the national territory.
For their use, we also take care of the bureaucratic procedures and the regional authorizations such as:

  • Authorization for the specific waste treatment
  • Local authorizations (authorizations or permits may be required at a local level by the municipalities or local authorities in which the plant will operate temporarily)

The treatments of our plants

The mobile plants of Gesteco are distinguished based on the type of waste treatment:

  • screening plant Doppstadt SM 518 P: screening and granulometric separation;
  • crushing plant Komatsu BR380JG: crushing and possible screening.

The waste that is not to be subjected to screening is introduced at the highest end of the screening drum. Due to the rotation and inclination, the waste is rotated several times and passes through the cylinder for its entire length, coming into contact with the screen mesh several times.

The finer particles "under-screen" pass through the screen wall, are collected inside the underlying hopper and, through the transverse and lateral conveyor belt, are discharged laterally to the plant, while the coarser material "over-screen", remaining inside the drum, reaches the other end, exits and is removed by the rear conveyor belt.

The maximum treatment capacity is 80 Mg/h.

The waste recovery activity consists of processes such as crushing, screening, granulometric selection, and separation of the metallic fraction and undesirable fractions, to obtain secondary raw materials with commercial characteristics in compliance with the technical sector regulations or, in any case, in the forms commonly marketed. 

Consequently, the crushing plant significantly contributes to the non-hazardous waste recovery process in specific sectors, such as the construction, iron and steel, ceramic industries, and similar others. 

The maximum processing capacity is 240 tons/h.

Throughout the years, we have always implemented the principles of circular economy even in the management of waste recovery mainly coming from construction-related activities, steel industry, ceramic industry, and similar.

We start from two fundamental considerations:

  • in the context of construction sites, significant volumes of special waste, mostly aggregates, are generated;
  • the disposal of waste in landfills generates significant management costs and externalities.

The recovery of waste generated in industrial and construction activities contributes not only to the circularity of material flows and their reintroduction into natural or production cycles, but also to the creation of more effective and economically efficient systems for the collection, separation, and treatment of materials.

"The sustainable management of waste is essential to address the challenges related to the increase in their production and to contribute to better environmental protection".
