Waste valorisation

We have been operating in the Waste Management sector for over 10 years and, more specifically, in the disposal and waste-to-energy sector, in line with the European trend for circular economy policies.

We are one of the leading Italian players with over 1.2 million tons of waste treated each year, and we are the benchmark operator for Central Italy, managing the main waste-to-energy facility and the largest composting plants in the regions of Lazio and Tuscany. In accordance with our commitment in sustaniability, we carry out waste selection and recycling of paper, iron, wood, plastic and metal in our plants in Abruzzo, Marche, Piedmont, Umbria, and Veneto.

Our objectives for development

  • Consolidation of the “core business” regarding energy recovery (WtE) and the disposal of mixed and organic waste
  • Strengthening of the Waste to Material (WtM) supply chains from a circular economy perspective (e.g. plastic, paper, ...)
  • Further development of the specific waste category also in synergy with the Group’s activities in the water sector (e.g. sludge) and WtE (e.g. ash)

Our main businesses

  • Acea Ambiente, with plants in Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria, operates in the environmental management sector (treatment and disposal), waste-to-energy production and composting
  • AQUASER operates in the phases of recovery, processing and disposal of sludge deriving from the integrated water service treatment cycle
