Inertia 2016 successful again
From 21st to 23rd of September 2016 FIR member ANPAR organized in Ferrara the 5th edition of INERTIA, the national event on the recovery of inert wastes and the production of recycled and manufactured aggregates.
The program was interesting dealing with all the hot issues of our sector: market barriers, legislative barriers, end of waste criteria, technical specifications, Minimum Environmental Criteria of public tenders, and so on.
On the first morning three tables of discussion were organized to find good and shared solutions between operators and public authorities on these subjects:
Use of recycled aggregates in public works of Municipalities
Use of recycled aggregates in major civil works (railways, motorways, infrastructures, etc.)
Bounded uses of recycled aggregates
All the actors of the production chain and of the Public Authorities actively participated to the success of the discussion.
In the afternoon of the first day two workshops were organized. The first one in cooperation with NAD (the national association of demolishers) focused on the predemolition audits, the waste management plans and the selective demolition on site. The second one, organized by Saint Gobain Group, on the management of gypsum and artificial fibres wastes focusing on their recovery.
The second day was dedicated to the end of waste criteria and the legislative and technical barriers to the development of the markets of recycled aggregates.
Mr. Vincent Basuyau of the European Commission was connected via skype to the room and presented the activities of the Commission and the new Protocol on the management of C&D wastes. General Secretary of FIR Geert Cuperus made a presentation on the interactions between the REACH Regulation and the End of waste criteria. The afternoon was dedicated to the manufactured aggregates both produced from the treatment of other than C&D wastes and from IBA. On mandate of Geert Cuperus, Giorgio Bressi presented the activities of FIR on IBA and announced the birth of the IBA section of ANPAR.
The third day was as usual fully devoted to excavated soils. This subject is very interesting for the Italian operators because the legislators changed the rules many times in these last three years.
ANPAR considered the 2016 version of INERTIA successful, regarding the good interest of stakeholders and the good participation of the audience.
