Valnor, the company responsible for the management, recovery and treatment of Solid Urban Waste produced in the municipalities of Abrantes, Alter do Chão, Arronches, Avis, Campo Maior, Castelo Branco, Castelo de Vide, Crato, Elvas, Fronteira, Gavião, Idanha-a-Nova, Mação, Marvão, Monforte, Nisa, Oleiros, Ponte de Sôr, Portalegre, Proença-a-Nova, Sardoal, Sertã, Sousel, Vila de Rei and Vila Velha de Rodão, invests 500. 000, in the reformulation of the Elvas Transfer Station, in order to optimize the transport service of undifferentiated waste.


This investment recommends the replacement of the undifferentiated waste compacting solution, thus allowing the optimisation of the transport of undifferentiated waste from the Elvas Transfer Station, replacing equipment that has been in operation for 20 years with a more efficient solution.


In addition, it foresees the acquisition of three semi-trailers equipped with mobile floor and volume of 90 m3, the acquisition of three hydraulic units to promote the displacement of mobile floors, the construction of three unloading hoppers and civil works for the adaptation of the Transfer Station.


The semi-trailers are an optimisation of the closed container transport solution, making it possible to transport around 24 tonnes per freight instead of closed containers, whose maximum load will be 11 to 12 tonnes.


The upwards transport solution with semi-trailers allows the Elvas Waste Treatment Plant to be immediately reconverted to receive selective collection bio-waste, with one of the semi-trailers included in the present investment proposal being destined for this purpose.


Nuno Heitor, Managing Director of Valnor, pointed out that "This intervention, foreseen in Valnor's Investment Plan, is in line with the company's management strategy, with the new paradigm of waste management that it has been assuming, namely in terms of contributing to compliance with national and community requirements for the sector, and of the sustainability of the System and the Concession in its environmental, social and economic-financial aspects.
