Installation of a dry anaerobic digestion and composting plant
This May, it was announced that Waste Treatment Technologies Netherlands (WTT) had commenced commissioning of a new integrated dry anaerobic digestion (AD) and composting plant in Giugliano, Naples.
The facility received the first loads of inoculation material and is running in accordance with contractual waste specifications. It is now expected to run at full capacity within the next few weeks when it will begin to treat 700 tonnes of waste per week.

Next up in our Global Waste Investment Fact File series is Vietnam. As of February 2017, AcuComm was listing nine waste projects in the country, with a total value of US$922 million, or US$102 million each.
Key points from this Fact File:
- Gasification is the leading project type, accounting for US$520 million, or 56% of the total. This is followed by incineration (with energy recovery), accounting for US$197 million, or 21% of the total.
- The total estimated capacity of these projects is 3.9 million tonnes. This is equal to 438,346 tonnes per project on average.
- This capacity is equal to 25% of Vietnam’s estimated annual waste generation, at 15.8 million tonnes.
- Waste investments totalling US$803 million are expected to become operational over the next few years. This is currently expected to peak in 2020 at US$49 million.

Construction of a 750,000 litres per day ethanol plant
Industria Paraguaya de Alcoholes SA (INPASA) is expanding its facilities by building a new ethanol plant in Guayaiba. The company, which already produces 70% of the country’s ethanol, is planning to increase production capacity by 750,000 litres per day.
The facility will make use of sugar cane and corn as feedstock and will also be self-sufficient in terms of energy production.
This project will only be available to access in full for the next 7 days. To make sure you don’t miss out, click here.
In the week ended 26th May 2017, AcuComm added 50 new or updated projects to our Business db, worth an estimated US$4,263 million and feedstock capacity of just under 9.3 million tonnes.
This takes the total estimated investment value of projects to US$371.4 billion.
- WtE incineration was the largest category in terms of feedstock, accounting for just over 3.5 million tonnes.
- The USA was the leading country from the past week, with 11 projects reported on. This was followed by China with eight and Canada with five.

Spain: Development of a waste management centre
Work has begun on a new waste management centre in Zubieta, which will have make use of state-of-the-art technology to exceed demanding regulations regarding emissions.
Comprising of a waste-to-energy (WtE) plant and a mechanical biological treatment (MBT) facility, the centre will reduce dioxin emissions by 70% and will recover around 10,000 tonnes of materials each year.
The facility is expected to be operational in autumn 2019.

Egypt: Construction of a recycling facility
Amut Ecotech has reported that its new recycling facility in Edwa City is now complete. Considered to be one of the most advanced in the region, the MBT facility will segregate 300 tonnes of municipal solid waste each day, helping to reduce the quantity of waste sent to landfill.
Recyclable materials will be extracted to sell, while RDF will be produced to use as a source of fuel.

Development of a WtE facility
This month, DONG Energy signed an agreement with Cure Afvalbeheer to form a joint venture. Under the partnership, the two companies will analyse the possibilities of constructing and operating a REnescience plant in Eindhoven.
Plans suggest that the facility will help to improve the region’s recycling rates by converting household waste into biogas.

Opening of a new material recovery facility
It has been reported that Pratt Industries has opened an 80,000 sq. ft. material recovery facility (MRF) in Atlanta, GA. It is hoped the facility will help to improve the recycling needs of metro-Atlanta, along with the north-west and south-west metropolitan areas. Municipal, commercial, paper, plastic and metal waste are among the materials that the facility will be able to process.
The commencement of operations comes after Pratt outgrew their other facility in East Point, GA, which opened in 2007.
As today’s Full Access Project, the full details will available for the next 7 days. To make sure you don’t miss out, click here.
Development of a demonstration sewage waste-to-biofuel plant
A group of 12 organisations are partnering together on the TO-SYN-FUEL project, which will develop a demonstration plant in Rotterdam to turn waste biomass into synthetic fuels and hydrogen.
Fraunhofer UMSICHT will co-ordinate the project and will also be providing their thermo-catalytic reforming (TCR) technology for the production of the fuels.
Under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, the project has been awarded funding to run for 48 months from May 2017.

Development of a waste sorting centre
Paprec has been selected to establish a new waste sorting centre in Villers-Saint-Paul under a design-build-operate (DBO) contract. It will be one the largest centres of its type in France.
The facility will receive around 60,000 tonnes of waste per year from across the Oise region, from which 19 optical sorters will differentiate between types of plastics and cardboard by texture and colour.
The full details on this project are now available to access for the next 7 days. You can do so by clicking here.
