Sorting and Treatment
Green Up is constantly focused on activities of research and development to deliver new technologies for waste recovery and recycling. The company is involved in the entire waste management chain and focuses on the primary objective of reducing the environmental impact, recovering and recycling landfill materials.
The recoverable fractions of nonhazardous special waste are either mechanically or manually sorted in our trusted and up-to-date treatment plants established all over Italy, within a cost-effective strategy. Materials treated and recovered such as glass, paper, cardboard, plastic, metal, discarded garments, tire and scrap tires , wood, etc. are taken to the factories to be made into new products.
Green Up operates collection and treatment facilities in areas of high business concentration, thus optimizing transportation. Inside the plant, the recovered fractions are divided by mechanical or manual selection and start towards specialized industries which allow, after appropriate treatment, reuse as Secondary Raw Materials (eg. Paper and cardboard, plastic, glass, ferrous metals , non-ferrous metals, wood, aggregates, tires, rubber, water, textiles, compost...) to re-enter the market in compliance with specific standards UNI for reuse. In some plants it is also produced the RDF, Refuse Derived Fuel. The energy produced is fed into the grid and sold to the manager of electrical services. Green Up, in full adherence to its mission, is constantly engaged in research and development of new plant technologies for the recovery and utilization of waste.
Paper & Cardboard
For the purpose of reuse of waste paper and cardboard, these shall be subjected a strict selection in order to obtain as homogeneous as possible types. In the category Paper & Cardboard stand in fact dozens of types of materials derived from cellulose. Once selected by type, we proceed to any cleaning, before being initiated at installations able to subject them to successive mechanical machining for reuse in the paper mill. In any physical passage from one facility to another, you need to pack the material in order to contain the clutter and therefore minimize the transport business
The recovery of materials generally referred to as "plastics" depart from a careful separation into homogeneous types for types / or polymer (identifiable with certainty through international abbreviations, type PC, PE, PS, PET, etc.), since materials must be undertaken at the dies for the treatment and recovery are highly specialized. For the purpose of maximum recoverability, even within the identical type (eg. Plastic film) is desirable to provide for separations of materials depending on the physical characteristics (eg. Film or rigid, between the film from the transparent colored). Most of the plastics then undergoes various industrial treatments which allow the production of the so-called "grain", the raw material used in the molding processes of new plastic products. It should be considered in assessing the environmental impact of the recovery of plastics, which of these items is required a cleanup by washing the same.
The wood which is recovered through the selection in the plant, or collected already differentiated at the customer, is normally reused for the production of chipboard.
Wet waste, if previously separated, is collected and sent to specific treatment plants for the effective operation of composting. Such product can be a used as soil improver and, if of high quality, even as fertilizer.
Vegetable Oil Fuel
Such collection service targets a wide range of activities related to the restaurant industry. The vegetable oil is considered a highly polluting waste causing severe damage to the waste-water collection and depuration systems and to the aquifer; it is previously collected in special containers and then sent to the treatment facilities both in Italy and abroad and finally recovered through the conversion to biodiesel.
Tyres and Scrap Tyres
The service is addressed to producers and resellers of wheels and scrap tyres. Both tyres and scrap tyres are treated in specific treatment plants and volumetrically reduced through a grinding process. The material obtained is transformed into rubber products or used as alternative fuel in cement plants or even as engineering material in place of the drainage material.
It's a waste composed mostly of residues arising from the crushing of vehicles out of use. It's produced mainly from iron and steel industries during the process of recovery of the metals and is composed of the waste non-metallic material present in motor vehicles, such as plastic, rubber, upholstery, fabrics, insulating material, electric cables, etc ... the fluff can not be recycled, but only disposed of in controlled landfills.
