Orizon Valorização de Resíduos had no doubts when it came to the choice: "We believe that STADLER manufactures machinery with the quality and robustness required to process the type of solid waste that the ecopark receives, and which, at the same time, keeps the quality control with manual sorting. At the new sorting plant, 150 people will be employed, who will carry out this work in the project, which will start its operation in 2022. This is why we needed a project that combines the two models," explains the Orizon manager.
A very ambitious project for the Brazilian market
Henrique Filgueiras, STADLER's sales representative in Brazil, explained that this agreement is "extremely important”. It strengthens further our relationship with a customer that we have known and worked with for more than 7 years – a company that has a lot of potential here in Brazil. In addition, it is a plant with a high capacity for processing MSW – the highest in Latin America – and a project on this scale strengthens our reputation as specialists in this type of plant in Brazil. The agreement gives us the opportunity to do a good job in another project and gain even more experience in Brazil.”
This plant has been designed to process a large volume of material with initial separation of the coarse and heavy fraction through mechanical sorting and final separation of the fines by hand. In addition, the plant layout already envisages the possibility of extending the line to increase its capacity, as well as increasing the automation of its processes.
Orizon Valorização de Resíduos operates 5 ecoparks in Brazil, and its waste management and processing facilities receive approximately 4.6 million tonnes of waste per year, serving approximately 20 million people and more than 500 business customers. Because of the efficiency and prominence of the new plant, the project will be replicated in the future in the rest of the company's facilities throughout the country.
The Brazilian market has very specific
characteristics, detailed analysis of the
individual cases is needed before presenting a
solution to customers. According to André
Galuppo, project supervisor at STADLER
LATAM, "STADLER always seeks to develop products, methodologies and ideas that are specific to the Brazilian reality. We don’t "copy and paste" projects from Europe. The objective is to develop projects, studies and work focused on Brazilian waste and business model. This technical and intellectual development will be used in Brazil and for Brazil, benefiting the entire market.”
Sergio Manchado Atienza, STADLER's Director of Latin American Operations, underlines that "we have been investing in STADLER do Brasil Ltda. for more than 8 years to provide local support that can be relied on, creating a full team to help develop the market in a country as important as Brazil, and with many resources necessary for the evolution of the circular economy. We are very proud of the work and development of our Brazilian subsidiary."
