1Pellenc ST has announced the delivery of 20 optical sorting machines to Ambiente S.p.A. in San Vitaliano (NA), Italy, for what is going to be one of the most advanced materials recovery facilities in Europe.

Pellenc ST provided the Ambiente Ecological Plant with 20 Mistral and Mistral DVI machines, to replace the existing equipment on site. This ambitious project, which takes place in the frame of a massive refurbishment of the entire facility, also encompasses a complete replacement of the existing mechanical equipment. The project integration is being managed by French company Vauché, together with its Italian subsidiary Vauché Bioma Italia Srl.

“We decided to select Pellenc ST optical sorting equipment because of their superior sorting technology, the flexibility of their team and their project management skills. Our decision was also motivated by the superior service guarantee offered by the company”, says Eng. Bruno Rossi, CEO of Ambiente S.p.A.. “The automation level of the system will make it one of the most advanced in the world”, states Rossi.

“We at Pellenc ST serve over 100 new waste treatment and recycling projects every year, in most regions of the world, and I have to say that this project is really unique. The customer wanted to achieve the highest possible degree of automation, so that he could at the same time improve his materials quality, reduce stress on personnel and minimize its operation costs. It resulted in a design that is probably the most sophisticated line of its kind in Europe”, says Jeremie Garbe, Director of Global Sales, Pellenc ST.

The project is due for completion within the first quarter of 2016 and will provide the region of Naples with a world-class facility for the recovery of recyclable materials, with a capacity over 70,000 tons per year.
