Integrated in the Group MOTA-ENGIL/URBASER, it is responsible for ensuring the treatment and recovery of waste in an environmentally suitable and economically sustainable way, contributing to improving the quality of life and the environment.
Waste treatment and recovery systems are managed by 11 concessionaires (Algar, Amarsul, Ersuc, Resiestrela, Resinorte, Resulima, Suldouro, Valorlis, Valorminho, Valnor, Valorsul), in partnership with the municipalities served. These companies annually process about 3.2 million tons of municipal waste (MW), produced by 6.3 million people, distributed across 174 municipalities, in an area about the size of 60% of Portuguese territory.
