Mytilineos to Build Waste Treatment Plant in Northern Greece

January 13, 2021

ATHENS — Mytilineos SA on Wednesday announced the signing of an agreement through its subsidiary Zeologic S.A., with Inwaste S.A., for the design, supply and construction of an innovative treatment plant for Hazardous and Non-Hazardous Solid Waste and Sludge in Greece.

The investment, which has already received the necessary environmental permits, will be carried out in Northern Greece and specifically in the broader area of Kilkis and will be the first facility of its kind in the country. The company's objective through this investment is to use this facility as a prime reference and contribute to the safe waste treatment, becoming the first integrated environmental solution dealing adequately with hazardous waste management in Greece. Once completed, the plant will be able to process Hazardous Solid Waste and Hazardous Sludge converting them to Non-Hazardous and Inert after treatment, aimed at their safe disposal or even secondary use (e.g., building materials).

The design of this innovative plant will be based on the internationally patented treatment method (Geochemical Active Clay Sedimentation – GACS), with exclusive commercial rights held by Zeologic. At the same time, it will accelerate the achievement of the waste management targets set at national level through the National Waste Management Plan (ESDA) and the National Hazardous Waste Management Plan (ESDEA) for Greek companies producing polluting and hazardous waste and have the obligation to handle them properly. Finally, the implementation of this facility opens the prospect of managing other heavily polluting waste not only in Greece, but also throughout the world, including important sectors of the economy such as remediation of contaminated soil.
