SMC - Chivasso (TO)
SMC SpA is the waste selection and treatment company in Chivasso. The plant, in addition to a selection and sorting line, is equipped with a section dedicated to the scrap rubber and used tires (PFU) processing. These materials are processed in a line composed of primary and secondary shredder to obtain flakes for energy recovery or direct use as engineering material (for example in gravel replacement for draining layers). Waste (non-hazardous waste) is transported to the close landfill, via an inside track.
This solution allows to avoid transport in town with consequent impacts on the environment and the territory. There’s also a biogas plant and energy recovery and a photovoltaic installation built on landfill exhausted now in post-management. The photovoltaic park has a total installed capacity of 994 kWp.
