  • "..the objective is to reduce the production of waste, and just like the incentive for the separation of rubbish for disposal purposes, these are important signals of a correct environmental policy, although rubbish should also be eliminated..."

    Matteo Renzi, Major of Florence

    "The topic of waste disposal has never before been brought to the attention of those who administer public interests: as far as my mandate is concerned I am certain of one thing; that I will never allow Tuscany to be subjected to the incredible scenes that we see in the Campania region, and mainly in Naples. The objective of reducing the production of rubbish, like the incentive for the separation of rubbish for disposal purposes, are important signals of a correct environmental policy, although rubbish must also be eliminated. The data that has been collected shows that the incinerator, which has been constructed carefully and in compliance with safety standards, is not dangerous for citizens. In 2004, when I was elected, I had two alternatives: either to continue discussing the problem for ever, or choose a solution. At the end we decided to take a decision: the Province chose the plants and there is no going back.”

  • "..the new waste to energy conversion technologies are totally free of organic substances.."

    Livio Giannotti, CEO of Quadrifoglio Spa

    "the new waste to energy conversion technologies  are totally free of organic substances; the fumes are treated with chemical and physical washing (urea, activated carbon, lime milk, baking soda); the particulates are eliminated by the through very effective filtering systems (fabric filters), and lastly, they can be further treated using catalyst technology. These systems permit the highest level of transparency, because all the different types of continuous controls can be made public in real time via a web link and can reach any information point for citizens. The steam produced in a combustion chamber  fuels the turbines which transform thermal energy into mechanical energy, which runs electricity generators; the heavy ashes generated by this combustion may be used to produce asphalt and cement. Form a greenhouse effect point of view the production of CO2 is avoided because  the electricity is not produced using fossil fuels.

    Doesn’t all this perhaps mean that there is a possibility of considering waste as a resource and not as scrap ?"
