ECOHISPÁNICA was formed in mid-2009 for the development of an innovative system for Municipal Solid Waste Treatment in continuous mode, which was the result of more than six years of research. Our company is principally engaged in `turnkey` sales of MSW Treatment Plants , its maintenance, and, where feasible, the operation of MSW Plants under our internationally patented proprietary technology. Once treatment is successfully tested, our immediate goal is the power generation and production of syngas, synthetic fuels, and biofuels from the biomass and from processed plastics. Both of them are extracted in an excellent format, and undoubtedly will strengthen our activity in management of MSW Treatment facilities.
- Business Type:
- Professional association
- Industry Type:
- Waste and Recycling - Waste to Energy
- Market Focus:
- Internationally (various countries)
- Year Founded:
he vision of the future from the Mayor Mr. José Masa and his team of collaborators, mainly the Manager of Rivamadrid, Mr. José Gómez, made possible such agreement, which is very important for ECOHISPÁNICA being that, besides the fact that the company RIVAMADRID is modelic in waste management with nearly 500 employees and with excellent facilities, the municipality is one of the most prestigious cities in Spain in terms of vocation of commitment to new technologies, and especially on environmental issues..
A firm commitment to the innovative technology of ECOHISPÁNICA is placing to Rivas Vaciamadrid at the forefront of the international urban waste treatment. In fact we are already receiving visits from companies and institutions of the 5 continents to verify on site the benefits of a MSW Treatment Plant which is the forerunner for the many MSW Treatment Plants which we hope to set around the globe.
ECOHISPÁNICAis a Spanish company that has developed and patented a proprietary system for treatment of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), based on the sterilization of household waste with zero emissions.
Our objective is to maximize the economic and environmental utilization of waste materials in which are usually thrown into the landfill.
The European Union has warned through various directives that sending waste to landfill is the worst alternative for disposal since it has nothing but a negative impact on the environment. But nonetheless, 70% of the 20 million tons of garbage produced in Spain each year ends up in the landfills; which this is equivalent to 1,500 times the Bernabeu stadium, filled to overflowing.
- AVOIDS THE SHIPMENT OF WASTE TO LANDFILL
Will reduce more than 75% the volume of MSW, thus increasing the landfills\'s life... And it could even be used for emptying not sealed landfills.
- THE PREVIOUS SELECTION OF WASTE IS NOT NEEDED
ECOHISPÁNICA respects 100% the pre-selection policies, but in our system this is not essential. By avoiding such previous selection, for example in remote municipalities, this would lead to huge savings in transportation of MSW; and therefore greatly reduce environmental pollution.
- ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY: SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION OF COSTS, AND INCREMENT OF REVENUES
Reduction of costs of investment, operation, collection, and landfill, respect to the costs of traditional facilities. More material valorization: we recover more than 80% of materials from garbage.
- REDUCES CO2 EMISSIONS
Less landfill = less CO2 and methane released to the atmosphere, and it brings the possibility of entering into the carbon-trading market.
- CLEAN FACILITIES
No odors, no pathogens; hygienic work environment.
- INCREASES THE EFFICIENCY OF OTHER FACILITIES
Improves the performance on Ecoparks, methanation plants, gasification plants, incinerators, biodiesel production plants, etc.
- SELF EFFICIENT IN ENERGY AND WATER
The potential of the biomass and plastics obtained in the process, for gasification and production of biofuels, coupled with the reuse of the water extracted from the waste, make each ECOHISPÁNICA Treatment Plant a potentially self-sufficient facility in terms of energy and water.
- IT IS MODULAR AND SCALABLE
The equipment is implanted into modular metal structures to be transported and installed easily in any part of the world. Our facilities are expandable from 40,000 to more than 1,000,000 tons per year.
- THE SANITIZING PROCESS IS VERY FAST
The process takes less than 30 minutes.
- IT IS ALIGNED WITH THE EU RULES
Fulfills the highest priority: to recover materials from waste, as the basis of sustainable development.
