The São Miguel Island Municipal Solid Waste Mechanical Treatment Centre was completed by Efacec, consortium leader (53%), in partnership with the construction company Marques S.A. (47%).
The waste treatment plant is, at this moment and during the next month, in the testing phase, and it is expected that the service will start operating at full capacity by the end of this year, presenting the conditions to meet the demanding European targets for waste recovery.
MUSAMI’s new space will have the capacity to process about 30 tons of recoverable waste, which will correspond to an annual process of about 55 thousand tons, including glass, paper, cardboard, plastic film and plastic or cardboard packaging.
Also, under the responsibility of the Efacec/ Marques Consortium for this New Waste Treatment Centre of MUSAMI, is the project corresponding to the Biological Treatment Centre (CTB), a facility intended for the treatment of Biodegradable Waste from the project now completed and for the treatment of waste from selective collection through anaerobic digestion to produce biogas and composting, to produce compost (organic corrective). This project is currently under execution and its completion is scheduled for the first half of 2023.
