What is fundamental to us when we get involved on a project
Any complex waste project, we do operate, is characterized by interlaced social, technical, environmental and economic aspects, as outlined in the Brundtland definition:
“Sustainable Development is the development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet present and future needs”.
The best solution for the integrated MSW management is therefore the one that is:
Socially sustainable: local stakeholders and communities must benefit from project, both:
directly: job creation, skill improvement, women empowerment, support technology transfer;
indirectly: improvement of environmental quality, job stabilization, community participation;
Technically sustainable: the construction and management solutions implemented shall deliver the required local environmental performance (e.g. air quality, water quality) and materially contribute to broader environmental goals (e.g. recovery of materials, reductions in Greenhouse Gas emissions);
Economically sustainable: the project, if properly managed, shall make the most efficient use of the available financial resources and play the role of a growth engine for greater value creation (e.g. improving the citizens’ willingness-to-pay through the tangible improvement in urban quality).
Each feasibility study we conduct for our projects, the different technical options have been carefully and objectively assessed against these criteria, in order to deliver the most appropriate and sustainable solution, which shall be:
The Integrated Energy B.V. designs, constructs and operates the waste treatment & disposal facilities in accordance which international standards e regulations. These regulations and standards are considered as framework and benchmark for the full MSW management processes in the countries we operate and the related technical and environmental required performances.
Avoiding emissions of methane gas causing greenhouse effect to the atmosphere. Gas around 25 times more dangerous.
Reduction up to 90% of the volume of waste that are being incinerated through the hygenic waste treatment method.
Minimizing the occupation of the land surface, unlike landfills that have a designated life and require lots of territory.
