THIS COMPOSTING SYSTEM REALIZED AND MANAGED FOR TEN YEARS BY ENTSORGA, ALLOWED TO ESTABLISH A REAL LIFE CIRCULAR MODEL THAT RECYCLES RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL ORGANIC WASTE TO PRODUCE HIGH QUALITY COMPOST FOR THE LOCAL FARMERS. THE MODULARITY OF THE SYSTEM ALLOWS MANAGING HIGH FLUCTUATIONS OF VOLUMES PROCESSED DUE TO SEASONALITIES IN TURISM AND AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES.
All the municipalities of the Ogliastra region, coordinated by the Province, have partnered to build a composting plant in Quirra.
Entsorga was awarded with an EPC contract to build a composting plant in Quirra-Osini. The area and the project were strategically selected to provide a close loop for the community, recycling organic waste, and producing a quality compost suitable for use in the surrounding agricultural areas.
The plant biogenically processes source separated residential and commercial food waste and green waste from the municipalities in the Ogliastra region. Today its potential capacity is 7,000 t/y, of which 5,200 t/y of food waste, 1,200 t/y of green waste and 600 t/y of recycled bulking agent. The plant started operations in 2005 and for ten years it was directly managed by Entsorga Italia.
