MTB Biostabilization

The Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) for biostabilization aims to reduce the impact on the environment of the putrescible fraction of unsorted waste when landfilled. It delivers reduction in greenhouse gases emission and in leachate production.


Entsorga’s approach to the MBT process offers two solutions caractherized by a different configuration of the mechanical and biological phases:

- A more traditional system with two flows in which the incoming waste is mechanically skimmed separating the wet fraction (under-sieve), which is sent to biostabilisation, and the dry fraction, with high calorific value (overcoat) and which can be further mechanically refined (with or without the biodyied fraction) to produce a Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF).

- A simplified single-flow system in which all the material is first bio-stabilized and subsequently screened and refined according to the needs of the process and the requirements of the end user..
