Treatment center

3V Green Eagle operates the largest industrial wastewater and sludge treatment center in Italy. It is located in Grassobbio, Bergamo and comprises waste treatment plants and service support facilities
offering effective, Zero Discharge, treatment processes for industrial wastewater & sludge, especially those types that are not biodegradable. The heart of the center is Wet Oxidation treatment.

The center has been operating since 1990 and consists of the following:

  • A Wet Oxidation TOP® plant for wastewater treatment
  • A Wet Oxidation DUAL TOP® plant for sludge treatment
  • A biological plant with improved performance and operates at a constant temperature of 25°C
  • A Chemical-physical pre-treatment plant
  • A stripping unit
  • A storage plant
  • An analysis and research laboratory

Advantages of the center:

There are multiple advantages due to the operation of the center which include:
  • Large treatment capacity for wastewater, especially non-biodegradable wastewater
  • High capacity of segregation and storage
  • Exceptionally low levels of environmental impact
  • High level of system automation with centralized control of all the various treatment phases
  • High professionalism of the personnel
  • 24/7 operational management of the entire center

Types of Waste We Treat

Analysis Laboratory

There is an onsite analysis laboratory at the center which aids in optimizing the waste treatment process. It performs approximately 50.000 analyses on more than 20.000 waste samples per year. The activities conducted by the analysis laboratory consist of:

  • Preliminary characterization of every new type of waste treated by the center
  • Analysis of each waste type arriving at the center
  • Characterization of the storage and blending tanks before the treatment
  • Monitoring of treatment plants which analyze over + 5.000 samples/year
  • Analysis of daily sample discharge in surface water
  • Real-time analysis of important parameters
  • Analysis of waste and surface discharge as stated in the Environmental Integrated Authorization of the Center
  • Analysis in support of the R&D department

Treatment at Zero Discharge

With the obtainment of the CE mark, the inorganic residue produced during the TOP® Wet Oxidation treatment can be used as filler for bituminous materials and others which are similar. We call this residue TOP® Filler, a secondary raw material that can be used to build roads.

3V Green Eagle Treatment Center operating in Grassobbio (BG).Italy is Certified UNI EN ISO 9001, UNI EN ISO 14001 e BS OHSAS 18001

Treating up to 5.000.000 tons/year

Our center is authorized to treat up to 400.000 tons of highly contaminated wastewater and sludge from third parties per year. In addition, we receive approximately 4.500.000 tons of wastewater per year from the nearby 3V Chemical production plant.

Wastewater streams from more than 300 clients are conveyed by means of tank trucks to storage tanks. This waste amounts to approximately 10-12.000 tons per year.

The center treats 290 different types of waste and an average of 6.000-8.000 tons of COD per year.
