Waste management

Environmental classification

Following an inspection of your setup our personnel will carry out an accurate analysis with the relative classification of the entire production cycle in which the waste products generated by the activity will be identified. Subsequently, the various types of waste are sampled and sent to a laboratory for the analytical certification. Following, the classification code is attributed that determines the storage and disposal methods for the waste products.

Consultancy and training

This division offers a training and assistance service for filling out and drawing up the waste-product loading and unloading logs, and for registration with the Sistri (Sistema di controllo della Tracciabilità dei Rifiuti - Control system of the traceability of waste products) that allows for computerising the entire special waste product chain via use of computer programmes capable of interacting with the new system. Every legislative amendment and updating pertaining to the environmental regulations is promptly communicated to customers and the impact of the new regulations on the activities deriving from the new provisions is evaluated together with them for implementing any possible procedures according to the requirements, in terms of parameters and/or control and management processes.

Management of the Logs

Even with the advent of Sistri some companies may still have to continue to fill out the waste-product loading and unloading logs; since Valmet avails of its own qualified personnel trained in environmental matters, it is able to manage and correctly fill out everything requested, relieving the companies of these operations that are often burdensome in terms of labour and entail a high level of criticality in the filling out.

M.U.D.

The Modello Unico di dichiarazione Ambientale (Environmental Declaration Form) is the document via which a report is made on how the waste products have been produced, transported, recovered and disposed of by the company during the year prior to filling out the declaration. It has even greater importance pending its probable abolition further to the full implementation of the Sistri when passing over to completely computerised management.
Our staff is trained in filling out this declaration and in addition to this service it also offers an ad hoc agreement with each customer that foresees assistance and management of all the necessary obligations the company’s business is subjected to.

Land reclamation and removal of asbestos

In the presence of polluted and/or contaminated soil that makes the terrain unusable and hazardous for human health, it is necessary to carry out reclamation of the same in compliance with the provisions laid down in Legislative Decree 152/2006, and this also applies in the presence of materials containing asbestos in both friable and compact form. It must be recalled that the production of asbestos in any form has been prohibited in Italy since 1992 and it can no longer be marketed since 1994. The first step for both reclamation and removal operations consists of an inspection with the withdrawal of several samples of soil and materials to be treated. This is followed by a chemical-physical analysis of the samples themselves in qualified laboratories to determine the composition. The documentation of a work plan is subsequently drawn up according to article 256 del Legislative Decree 81/2008 amended by Legislative Decree 106/09 which establishes the methods and operations required for achieving the reclamation/removal in complete safety for the environment and the operators involved. Where necessary, Valmet takes care of requesting any permits from the competent entities (ASL, local health departments, etc…) with the issuance of the final certificate testifying to the reclamation/removal and the form demonstrating successful disposal. All the reclaimed materials are conveyed to landfills and plants that are authorised to receive said substances.

Scheduled management

Every type of waste product requires appropriate containers for storage and transport according to specific reference standards; our services also include the supply of validated packaging for hazardous and non-hazardous waste products (drums, big bag, boxes, etc..).
