Waste to Energy Plant – Melfi

Process: Waste to Energy

Duration of the project: 1996 - 2001

Client: FENICE

In the frame of Fenice Project, finalized to the optimization of energy and ecological plants at the production sites of Fiat Group, the main Italian carmaker, FISIA ITALIMPIANTI has designed and realized the WtE plant of Melfi, having capacity of 65,000 tons/year.

The plant features two lines of solid waste incineration:

  • A rotary furnace for thermal destruction of special solid waste, having capacity of 35,000 tons/year.
  • A grid furnace for MSW and alike, having capacity of 30,000 tons/year.

Flue gas produced by the furnaces, before disposal to atmosphere, undergoes the following treatments:

  • Dust removal by sleeve filtering;
  • Acid gas (HCI, SOx) removal by wet scrubbing;
  • Nitrogen oxides removal through DeNOx reactor.

Ashes resulting from flue gas treatment are sent to authorized disposal facilities.

The plant, commissioned in 2000, is treating today also the MSW coming from the city of Melfi and the neighbouring Municipalities.
