WITH THE TURTLE™ BIOCELLS SYSTEM, ENTSORGA ENABLED THE COMMUNITY OF GALDA DE JOS AND THE PROVINCE OF ALBA JULIA TO MANAGE MORE EFFICIENTLY MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE BY PREPROCESSING MSW PRIOR TO LANDFILLING. THIS SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVED THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF THE DISPOSAL SYSTEM BY REDUCING VOLUMES LANDFILLED, LEACHATE PRODUCED AND RELEVANT GREENHOUSE GASES EMISSIONS.
The Alba Julia District (Romania), a public body administrating the province of Alba Julia, has completed the construction of an integrated system for the Municipal Solid Waste treatment based on regional government ordinances.
PORR Construct SRL (part of the PORR Group with Headquarter in Vienna), in joint venture with Entsorga Italia SpA, has developed the project for the “Construction of a waste management integrated center” of Galda de Jos, which inclueds a landfill, a sorting plant and a biological mechanical treatment plant. Specifically Entsorga Italia has designed and supplied a biological organic treatment system, consisting of 18 Turtle Q-Ring™ biocells, that allow stabilizing waste and produce CLO (Compost Like Output), a stable material suitable to be used as a daily landfill cover. The system is supported by an Entsorga aspiration system (air flow rate 30.000 m3/h) serving the mechanical pre-treatment section, and from an Entsorga proprietary biofilter odor abatement.
The solution proposed allows stabilizing and sanitizing organic waste through an aerobic digestion process using the Turtle Q-Ring™ technology. The semi-permeable membrane installed as biocells cover eliminates odors without the need of any additional filtering system.
