Urban solid waste is by nature subject to
great variability on appearance, quantity and quality. Getting to know more
about the different waste flows that Lipor manages and treats we must focus on
searching for the characteristics of the materials, but also on the reasons why
it is being generated. To answer this questions Lipor has invested on Research
and Development studies that allows waste valorization by the most sustainable
solution and will give us the knowledge to reach the recovery of 100% of waste.
From organic waste to slag from municipal
waste incineration we want to find the best solutions for each of the different
materials. Lipor R&D studies are exploring areas such as efficient energy
use, life cycle evaluation of its operations and products, the recovery of slag
in different products and containers and composters sensing through innovative
Although some of the studies are developed
in house, we have the support of
several higher education institutions that together with Lipor are asking the
questions that, after being answered, will allow us to build the future today.
