By waste we have to intend "any substance or object the owner wants to get rid of or has the intention or obligation to get rid of". Accordingly, the identification criterion of waste is double.
Waste is classified according to the origin, distinguishing between municipal waste and special waste and according to characteristics of dangerousness, i.e. dangerous and non-dangerous.
Considering the philosophy establishing a hierarchy in waste treatments, the European Committee determined that a proper management of waste has to follow a precise order, depending on levels priority and environmental sustainability:
As of these principles, prevention has to encourage reducing waste production and containing waste dangerousness, while facilitating its re-use, recycling and other types of recovery.
Disposal in landfills is at the bottom of this hierarchy, as it is considered as a residual option to be cancelled completely as time goes by.
Managing waste in a rational way is extremely important, as they might become a resource not to be underestimated, in terms of energetic requirements and eco-sustainability.
All the waste produced, both as municipal waste and industrial waste, is subject to a fundamental collection phase, in order to go to various treatment plants according to different typologies.
Waste treatment plants are essential to ensure environmental protection and avoid dispersions of elements and materials that might cause natural matrixes pollution. It is possible to avoid such problems by ensuring a proper management.
Biogas equipment set up in landfills may constitute a good solution to produce clean energy, as they also help reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
Waste management processes including
may be at the origin of malodorous odors emissions generating from specific or diffused sources that, in most cases, may potentially cause a nuisance to residents or other production activities present.
Labiotest is in a position to analyze the emission problem and propose a good applicable solution, thanks to the use of technologies and equipment for the abatement and containment of malodorous odors, guaranteeing high efficiency rates in all applications.
Every emission has its characteristics and its most proper solution for treatment. This is what Labiotest has been able to offer for more than 30 years.
