Circular cities, Waste-free cities
As 2 billion tonnes of waste is generated worldwide every year, Europe has set itself the ambitious target of recycling 65 % of all waste by 2030, in addition to encouraging composting. But there is still much to be done.
Reducing, reusing and recycling are the pillars of the cities that ACCIONA wants to design. These are key factors in preventing the collapse of human productivity and addressing the climate emergency.
In order to transform cities, waste management must be addressed. Our proposed solutions for this seek to accelerate the implementation of a circular economy model that focusses on taking care of the resources used and how they are produced.
For this, ACCIONA offers services that include waste collection, road cleaning, maintenance of municipal spaces, beaches and urban developments, management of waste treatment and transfer plants, as well as management of the waste disposal centres of waste transfer plants.
Technology and innovation are key to this. The progress we have made means we have successfully increased the efficiency of waste collection, transport and management. In this way, ACCIONA designs optimised routes, uses container sensorisation and obtains new sustainable materials.
