The W.A.T.T. Group has invested in the development of infrastructure and equipment that are a benchmark for the industry as a whole.
Privately owned facilities
Fyli, Attica| Material Recovery Fund
W.A.T.T.’s model Material Recovery Fund (MRF) in Fylis with a processing capacity of 50,000 tons per year, has been operating since 2008, creating new data in the integrated waste management process.
The new Mechanical and Biological Treatment Unit of MRF Fylis has innovative technology, is designed according to the strictest international standards, and provides the ability to receive and treat packaging and residual waste.
Advanced mechanical separation methods allow for the production of secondary fuels (SRF) and recyclable materials such as glass, plastics and metals. Due to their extensive post-processing, secondary fuels (RDF and SRF) are high quality alternative fuels that meet the demanding international standards of the cement industry.
Koropi, Attica | Material Recovery Fund
W.A.T.T.’s Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in Koropi, the only waste treatment plant in the whole of Eastern Attica and the most modern in Greece, has been operating since 2010 and serves the needs of 30 Municipalities of Attica.
The facilities are equipped with the most modern technology of mechanical packaging, commercial and industrial waste treatment, with a processing capacity of 20 tons/ hour. The specialized mechanical equipment in combination with the large capacity of the unit, ensure the achievement of high purity in the products, while the use of innovations in the design allows it to adapt the production process to the peculiarities of the Greek reality regarding the separation of recyclable waste.
Paros, South Aegean | Material Recovery Fund
In Paros, the Group has developed a state-of-the-art technology center aiming to meet the waste management needs of the Aegean islands. The collection, the first stage of sorting and the packaging of the composite materials which are intended for recycling take place in the Group’s privately owned facilities.
- The Group has developed an open type composting plant in Ioannina. Through the wastewater management of the Municipality, the facility has a production capacity of 100 tons per day.
- The MRF of the Municipality of Kropia contributes to Greece’s effort to transition into a more circular economy. In collaboration with the Department of Chemistry of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, it receives and processes 10,000 tons of pre-selected biowaste, coming from the Municipality of Vari – Voula – Vouliagmeni. As a result of this cooperation, the unit can produce 2 types of excellent quality compost, VITA Green and VITA Green Plus products. This is the most typical example of a circular economy at a local government level, with the 100% utilization of a Municipality’s biowaste, providing the possibility of using the end products in the rapidly growing market of organic agriculture.
