Technical visit to the premises of CITVRSU in Coimbra

The IPC team of the LIFE PAYT project visited the facilities of the Integrated Center for the Treatment and Valorization of Urban Solid Waste (CITVRSU) in Coimbra, managed by ERSUC – Solid Waste of the Center S.A.

The visit to the facilities allowed the team to observe the complete waste treatment process from the pit where the waste is discharged, to the maturation zone of the compost. The team observed how the organic fraction, after mechanical separation, turns into an appropriate organic soil amendment.

The objective of this visit was to learn about ERSUC’s waste treatment system, and to share experiences, promoting the LIFE PAYT project.
