Lipor waste management strategy is based on principles of Circular Economy, facing the Waste as a resource. In this way, the Organic Recovery, since LIPOR creation, is one of the main components of this strategy, in which the organic fraction of waste is the raw material that is treated by Composting, originating the production of a soil corrective, NUTRIMAIS.

In order to ensure a high quality of the soil corrective (NUTRIMAIS), is essential to LIPOR Organic Valorisation Plant, material with a high content of organic matter. In this sense, LIPOR with the Associated Municipalities has implemented several projects of organic fraction selective collection present in municipal waste (bio waste), in particular:

· Green Waste (e.g. grass clippings, flowers, gardening branches), from parks, gardens, cemeteries;

· Food waste (e.g. remains of the preparation of meals, food leftovers; fresh products that do not comply with the requirements for sale) from restaurants and similar, as well as markets, fairs and processing centres and/or distribution of fresh products.

In 2015, the total number of received loads in LIPOR Organic Valorisation Plant, was greater than 8.000, corresponding to a total amount of bio waste treated of 47.022 tons, having been 24.959 t of organic waste and 22.063 t green waste, of which 2.329 came from green waste sorting of cemeteries (flowers).

Comparing the year of 2014 is a 5% increase in the amount of waste subject to composting and compared to 2013 the growth amounted to 12%.

The total amount of compost produced was of 10.799 tons, noting that analytical determinations performed attested that the compost, Nutrimais, has good physic-chemical characteristics, is a stable product, matured and sanitized and therefore of high value for the agricultural soils.

To highlight that the occupancy rate of LIPOR Organic Valorisation Plant was 78.4% and the yield of the composting process has reached 23%.
