Ambientalia was founded in 1999, with the intention to contribute to improve the environment and has always designed and manufactured products and systems with largely revolutionary characteristics, sometimes even ahead of the times. To do this, it has always invested in research making use of the collaboration of its employees, specialized external consultants as well as university research institutes. Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company? AMBIENTALIA: Through its products, Ambientalia has aimed at reducing the odors caused by rotting organic waste, trying to improve the environment, making it more hygienic and also paying attention to reducing the costs incurred by its customers (municipal companies or municipalities) as regards transport and the number of bin emptyings. With the aerobic systems of its own design and production, It wanted to ensure that the manufacturing processes are as natural as what occurs in nature, only by reducing the timing. E.E: What’s the news about new products? AMBIENTALIA: We are currently studying a new type of aerobic sanitation and stabilization plant not only aimed at the treatment of organic waste. Since it is a patent, we prefer to keep this project confidential at the moment. E.E: What are the ranges of products? AMBIENTALIA: Ambientalia produces: Cover up is the first lid which, thanks to its particular opening and the high filtering capacity of the special carbon filter, which adsorbs the malodorous molecules, manages to significantly reduce the concentration of odorous gases. Cover up is produced for 120 and 240 liter two-wheeled containers on wheels; Covers with Adsorbeco carbon anti-odour sheet, very useful for reducing odors caused by the decomposition of organic material. Where there is an odor problem caused by organic material, Ambientalia carbon roofing is the best solution. AmbiSystem is an aerobic waste treatment plant. Relocatable and modular, developed and patented by Ambientalia, it is intended for the aerobic stabilisation of separately collected urban waste and the production of compost from organic matter and vegetable waste. AmbiSystem is quick and easy to install, as it does not require the use of expensive sheds and consequently has the advantage of being able to be moved to another area, in the event of processing changes. It is modular, as the plant is initially customized on the basis of the annual quantities that the customer is authorized to process, but with the possibility of adjusting it in the event that the quantities of material increase. The plant can treat from a minimum of around 12,000 tons/year upwards, based on customer needs. AmbiPress is a ‘bagging’ machine that completes the Ambisystem by forming biotunnels and inserting the material inside them. E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active? AMBIENTALIA: As far as we are concerned, we are currently penalized in Italy by the failure or excessively delayed granting of authorizations by the bodies responsible for companies intending to carry out waste treatment. We have customers who have been waiting for authorization for a long time to be able to bring a system like ambiSystem into their equipped area and they still do not know when they will be able to obtain it. Lockdown due to Covid, change of governments and therefore of officials have not helped. E.E: What can you tell us about market trends? AMBIENTALIA: Concerns about the environment should push everyone to want the best for our planet, leading to choosing products or carrying out processes that have a lower environmental impact. Currently, we see a lot of activity in our sector, with a continuous search to bring innovative products to market and this is a very positive thing. E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed? AMBIENTALIA: We consider all of our products still innovative. E.E: What estimations do you have for 2023? AMBIENTALIA: In 2023, which has just begun, we will take some projects abroad and it will be a very interesting challenge.
