Waste emergency, energy for Fiumicino: “Let’s overcome fears and look at the advantages of a waste-to-energy plant in the region”

Fiumicino – “It now appears that Mayor Gualtieri ARead our suggestions and share them in full… What we offer is certainly a provocation, but we believe that what we have been offering for nearly 4 years is so The best solution to close the waste cycle. Indeed, as members of the Capitoline City Council have also emphasized and as we have suggested many times, we should begin to develop a definitive policy on waste valuation It could become a fortune for the region and for the families who live there.” This was stated in a press release Orazio Azulenipresident of the Energie Club of Fiumicino.

“After the statements about the future construction of the waste-to-energy plant – the president explains – The mayor of the Eternal City reduced the tari tax (waste tax) by about 6.5% for non-local users and about 4% for local users, declaring that with the start of the power recovery system, it will drop another 20%.
To the above, they will definitely be added The savings families will get on their bills Thanks also to Supplying the waste valuation plant with electricity and thermal energy, Without forgetting the positive effects on the environment (the waste-to-energy plant with the recovery of energy contained in undifferentiated waste, allows significant savings from non-renewable sources such as oil, coal and its equivalents).

In this context, the Fiumicino waste cycle would be well suited, a fact with one of the highest percentages of separate waste collection, as confirmed annually by Legambiente. The next step, to become independent and reduce billing costs and waste tax costs, is: Proper disposal of waste and at the same time the production of energy, heat and recycled materials”. In 2019 – Azulini confirms – the mayor explained that New waste collection plan for the municipality of Fiumicinowill soon start with some innovations, among them the arrival of “fixed pricing” (bags with a small chip for collecting dry waste, about 52 bags per family), but the same can be easily dealt with as in the cities of Parma, Turin and Piacenza, where the cost is directly on the quantity generated by each user.

In recent years, we have met and talked with many people who presented their point of view (for and against), participated in meetings and conferences and studied many relationships, and always come to the same answer: Waste should become the wealth of society And not a burden. So why are you still afraid of such a plant? The answer is always “the pollution it causes, especially dioxin emissions”. But this connection is wrong, let’s take an example Lahti, Finland, which was awarded in 2021 as the “Green Capital” Thanks to air quality, waste management, green growth and environmental innovations.”

“However – concludes Azzolini – there is a waste-to-energy plant… for a better future we must Talk about the advantages that a waste-to-energy plant brings to the region and trying to overcome fears.
