Redesigning the Relations Between Industrial Waste Treatment Plants, Landscape and Local Communities

04/03/2024 - 15/06/2024

Background:
The construction and subsequent management of new treatment plants for industrial waste is a process that challenges the local contexts with a number of environmental, spatial and socio-economic repercussions, including the infrastructural networks, the landscape characters, the relations with the local communities, etc.

Challenge:
The purpose of this challenge is planning the future expansion of an existing plant treating industrial waste through the conception of a new model of facility. This will be capable of introducing a new paradigm of hybridization and symbiosis between the necessary operations for a safe and sustainable waste management, the surrounding environment, the generation of energy and secondary raw materials, the local community.​

Key objectives:​

  • Minimize the potential harm associated with waste treatment;​
  • Ensure the best integration between the waste treatment plant and the surrounding territory;​
  • Circular economy, Industrial symbiosis;​
  • Safe handling, storage and disposal.
