Structure and Civil Engineering, Central Waste Treatment Andorra S.A a La Comella

The project involves implementation at the level of public works (infrastructure, access, drainage) of the Waste Treatment Centre Andorra.

It consists of a collection area of about 2000 m² divided into 2 platforms, the first located on the lower level is where the containers.

And at the top level, content by means of reinforced concrete walls, we have the area where people agree to dispose of different types of waste.

Adjacent to this building is the waste transfer station.

A ship of 700 m² which control other types of materials that need a default handling (tires, batteries, appliances, medicines, etc) since they constitute a danger to the environment.

The main building downtown, the incinerator is a set of 4 buildings arranged one after another, obtaining a dimension of about 4000 m² on the ground and reaches a height of 30 m.
 

All constructed of reinforced concrete and steel. The first building is intended to offices and meat waste, health and hospitals.

Here is the hall where trucks maneuver to download to the concrete pit of 2700 m³.

From there the waste is dumped by hydraulic tongs in the furnace boiler, where they can reach 850 C º.

From here the charred residues are segregated and stored in a ship of about 550 m at the end of the complex for subsequent transfer to specialized treatment centers.

For their part, the fumes from the furnace are treated and made ​​to pass through a turbine to generate electricity.

30% of the energy generated in the center is used to satisfy consumption and the remainder goes to the country's electricity grid.
