5. USING WASTE AS A RESOURCE
Use waste streams as a source of secondary resources and recover waste for reuse and recycling.
The task of the recycler is to sort recyclable waste and separate materials for recovery. This sorting and separation is an essential element in the recycling process, which involves the "use waste as a resource" strategy, and is therefore presented as circular work. The daily activities of the recycling operator include physical labour and the handling of machinery such as driving forklift trucks.
THE USE OF WASTE AS A RESOURCE IN THE HYBRID SYSTEM
The cork used as a resilient element is a cork production waste that is mainly used for the production of corks, which becomes an excellent resource to make the growing medium softer. In the hybrid system, the cork is aggregated with the roots in the growth medium and is not dispersed into the environment.
Another key element in the installation phase is the so-called VermiCompost, which is produced from matured cow manure and stabilised in an earthworm composter. VermiCompost is the prince par excellence of organic soil improvers and has proven to be highly effective in activating biological activity in the latest installation in San Benedetto del Tronto.
In its nutrition plans, POWERgrass favours products of organic origin that use recyclable matrices such as hydrolyzed leather, compost heap leachate, etc. to promote bacterial flora in the soil.
