PROPHOS CHEMICALS S.r.l. , together with other partners, intend to submit a project proposal for the Horizon 2020 Programme (SME Instrument) titled “Innovative solution for phosphate recovery from exhausted extinguishing powders – PHOSave”.
The project intends to realize a pilot plant on the territory of San Giovanni in Croce (Cremona) for the treatment of special waste (deriving from fire protection sector) as exhausted extinguishing powder recovering phosphate including in them and will also organize collection and recovery of this special waste throughout Italy.
The project contribute to implement – in eco-sustainable way – a new waste management method recovering high value-added raw material that is non-renewable and there never will be in order to develop new products to use in different fields: agriculture (specialty fertilizers) and wood sectors.
As the reduction of waste quantities which actually end up in fields (through manure spreader) or dumps and the creation of new economic activities which bring new work places are heartfelt issues, the project is very interesting for the local government thus we endorse its objectives.
We strongly believe that the project will serve as a model of effective practices for collection and recycling of specific waste types which today are not recovered for the benefit of the environment and the local population.
