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

04/03/2024 - 15/06/2024

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.

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.
