December 2016

Around 70 relevant stakeholders participated in the closing event that was carried out successfully in the city of Medellin on December 1st, 2016.

“We don’t intend to bring magic solutions to get rid of the waste, but we really want to help fix the social and environmental problem that affect the city, because we believe in Medellin,” said Fernando Centeno, Head of Research Planning at Exergy.

More than 15% of the waste disposed of in La Pradera is recyclable material. Additionally, more than £12 million could be saved without counting on social and economic costs, improving the quality of life for Medellin’s inhabitants.

The results of the project caught the attention of the attendees who discussed alternatives to solve the current situation.“There is public interest in continuing with a second stage for the waste2energy Medellin project,” said Johann Martinez from CIDET. It would be possible to count on the support of local authorities such as Antioquia Government, Medellin’s County, The Metropolitan Area, EPM, and EMVARIAS among others.

Fernando Centeno- Exergy, on behalf of the waste2energy Medellin consortium, presented the experience of the project as well as the integrated solution proposal for the municipal solid waste treatment and its use for energy production.

Likewise, the consortium met on Monday 28th with the company AAA, a private organisation in charge of the collection, disposition, aqueduct and sewage services of Barranquilla who would be interested in developing a project for the use and recovery of municipal solid waste materials in this city and its metropolitan area.
