Treatment of the organic fraction of solid waste for the production of compost, used as a soil conditioner

Recovery of recyclable materials

Considerable reduction of the quantity of waste to be finally disposed, resulting in a near two-fold increase of the life time of the landfill

The plant treats the total quantity of the municipal solid waste of Kalamata city, as well a quantity of the dewatered sludge from the neighboring wastewater treatment plant.
