Objective and activities

The project purpose was to introduce sustainable waste management practices, involving recovery of both materials and energy from municipal solid wastes (MSW), in the territory served by the municipal utility association of Marga-Marga in the Valparaíso region. As a pilot activity, a treatment centre for approx. 100,000 t/yr MSW was established.
