Production of Waste Derived Fuels (CDR)

The difficulty of recycling material of many of the managed waste, either because they are mixed - undifferentiated waste, or because of its physical and chemical characteristics, finds a recovery solution in the transformation into CDR, which can be used in units licensed for this purpose.

Destruction Operations

In some of our units, we carry out diferent product destruction operations, either due to expiration, counterfeiting, confidentiality or management options. Some of these operations are accompanied by tax and customs authorities.

Construction and demolition wastes

The RCD management activity includes the storage, sorting, recovery and recycling of materials, with the possibility of incorporation in bilding and paving processes.

WAYS OF ACTION:

  • Identification of the type of waste to be produced on site (quantities, packaging)
  • Waste sorting planning and definition of internal handling methodologies for packaging

Organic Valorisation in Bioremediation

BLUEOTTER has the capacity to treat and recycle organic waste by means of bioremediation totalling 28,000 metric tons per year in Setubal.

Read more

Resorting to Bioremediation organic valorisation is an ecologic method for the environmental recovery of soils, presenting a higher cost-benefit ratio by comparison to traditional methods of physical and chemical removal of pollutants.

Our facilities in Setubal were the first ones to develop this innovative project nationwide, resorting to this recycling biological process for waste that normally would be destined to deposit in landfill.

The list of EWL codes covered by the operator`s waste management license No. 063/2016, CITRI, regarding Bioremediation is presented below:

LER Codes

Composting Organic Valorisation

BLUEOTTER is developing a modern and innovative treatment and valorisation composting unit for organic waste, in Setubal, with the capacity to treat 60,000 metric tons per year.

Read more

This unit will allow to obtain a quality organic compound to be applicable in agriculture. The compound will be subject to a strict alignment with the current Law on Fertilizers.

The beginning of operation of this unit is expected for 2019.

Valorisation and Production of Alternative Fuels

BLUEOTTER has two RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) production lines, one in Setubal and another in Alenquer. These lines can process up to 100,000 metric tons per year.

Read more

RDF valorisation allows to reduce the volume of landfill technical confinement, deviating a significant fraction of waste which for its characteristics, namely calorific power, may be subject to a different valorisation operation.

The RDF line of production basically consists on a pre-shredder, having a rigorous control, a magnetic splitter for the removal of iron materials, an air splitter to sort the lightest fraction and to which a higher calorific power is associated and, finally, an ultimate shredder (adjuster), which will assure that the RDF dimensions comply with the requests of energetic valorisation units (cement kilns, boilers, among others), followed by another iron splitter. There is also a metal splitter on the refuse end (heavy fraction)

The final results in respect of the quality of the RDF produced are in line with the highest quality standards pursuant to the Portuguese Standard.

Technical confinement in landfill

BLUEOTTER possess two landfill technical confinement units, in Setubal and Alenquer, with an annual capacity for the treatment of non-hazardous waste of 130.000 metric tons/year.
