In line with the challenging goals set by the European Commission regarding the recovery of materials during the process for "closing the loop” in the waste cycle, Acea has launched Acea Smart Comp, an innovative diffused composting project for the management of organic waste.
Acea Smart Comps are mini composting plants equipped with revolutionary sensor technology that transforms organic waste into compost on the spot, using an aerobic process that produces ready-to-use fertilizer in approximately 90 days. This initiative creates a new approach focused on proximity, which closes the gap between where the waste is produced and the place where it is processed.
Diffused composting targets large customers (shopping malls, cafeterias, airports and stations) that need to manage large quantities of organic waste. The first AceaSmartComp was installed in the Acea cafeteria which will become organic waste free.
