The project concerned the design and the implementation of an integrated waste management system at the Aspropyrgos Industrial Complex.
The Aspropyrgos Industrial Complex comprises a 148,000 bbl/d Refinery that occupies approximately 2.000 employees.
The objective of this project was to establish a tailor – made waste management scheme to boost on site prevention, re-use and recycling, with the goal to reduce by 70% the quantity of produced waste ending up landfilled.
During design and implementation, focus was given to establishing a tailor – made separate collection scheme, targeted to 10 distinct waste streams (paper, plastic, metals, glass, food waste, tetrapack, plastic lids, batteries, small appliances, lamps).
A total of 250 adequately labelled bins were placed at the various buildings of the complex to support on -site separate collection activities. Special emphasis was placed in biowaste collection from restaurants and other catering facilities.
