Acea and the circular economy

Acea has been investing in the circular economy for years. The activities carried out in the environmental chain aim to create value from the waste treated through its use in the energy production process and its transformation into high quality compost for agriculture. The commitment to the circular economy also takes concrete form in the integration with water activities for the recovery, treatment and disposal of sludge deriving from the purification stage of the integrated water service.
