Environmental management

The proper treatment and destination given to the industrial waste have gained emphasis in the global context, whether due to the advance towards ISO 14001 certification or due to the commitment with Social Liability. Companies from the most different industrial sectors have been increasingly concerned about the treatment of the generated waste. This occurs not only due to the environmental legislation, more and more restrictive, but also, mainly, because the companies are getting to the conclusion that they may profit from almost everything that is discarded.
Renova Beneficiamento offers environmentally correct management and final destination services to any type of industrial waste, generated by industries of all segments, thus taking over full operating and legal responsibility that may be applied over such activity.

IMPROVEMENT

Types of waste

Renova Beneficiamento holds licenses of permanent installation and operation issued by Cetesb, the controlling agency of environment in the State of São Paulo. With such licenses, the company is duly authorized to receive and improve industrial waste from plants containing iron or aluminum in its composition, including those deemed hazardous, from classes I and II.

The main industrial wastes improved by the company are:

• Dreg from Boring
• Blankets, papers, cotton waste, and filtered cloth
• Cut Dreg
• Honing Dreg
• Electro-erosion Dreg
• Iron dust
• Jetting dust
• Iron scale
• Sand and sawdust contaminated with oil
• Diatomaceous Earth
• Wastes containing iron in their composition.

As an environmental rule, Renova only receives waste for the due treatment with the certificate of authorization for disposal of industrial waste, issued by the environmental agency of the State.

Renova Beneficiamento also counts on a laboratory for the analysis of all types of waste that are received, according to the criteria established for evaluation.

 

Renova Beneficiamento uses the best technique currently available on the market for the improvement of industrial solid waste received. The technique is considered as the most efficient, as it transforms the material resulting from the process of waste treatment into raw material, which may be reused, for instance, in noble operations of steel plants.

The improvement occurs with the thermal destruction of the contamination items present in the solid waste, such as oil. This material is the first one submitted for specific storage boxes, and after a few other processes of separation, the material is sent to a rotating drying oven, which transforms the material resulting from the waste treatment process into raw material to other industries.

All the materials resulting from the improvement process of the waste have environmentally correct final destination. Even the gas generated in the process of separation of oil from the waste undergoes a treatment process, in a post-burner, operating at a temperature of 1,200 degrees with the purpose of burning such generated gas, leaving this process without the organic compounds that could contaminate the air.

Periodically, with the support of the responsible environmental agency, Renova collects the final gas to make analyses and to test the efficiency of the treatment process.


Transportation Requirements

Renova Beneficiamento meets all safety rules established by the Legislation, and thus counts on its own fleet of vehicles, adapted to receive and transport with the necessary care all the solid waste from the industries.

In addition to vehicles specifically prepared for this type of transportation, Renova adopts a series of preventive safety measures, such as contracts with companies that provide emergency services in case of problems with the vehicles.

With initiatives such as this one, Renova Beneficiamento increases safety in the transportation and minimizes risks.

Check out a few other measures adopted by Renova to ensure safety in the transportation of industrial solid waste:

• Certificate of capacitation for the transportation of hazardous waste, issued by Inmetro.
• Numbering signs by the UN and Risk Labels, as of NBR 7500.
• Envelopes and emergency sheets for the waste transported, as of NBR 7503, NBR 7504, and NBR 8285.
• Manifesto of industrial waste transportation and identification of hazardous waste, as of NBR 13221.
• Drivers trained especially to transport hazardous waste and with the due certification - MOPE.

 

Final Disposal

After undergoing a safe and efficient process of improvement, the industrial solid wastes received by Renova Beneficiamento are transformed into raw material for other companies’ use, concluding a cycle of recycling and reuse.

The oily emulsion resulting from the waste treatment procedure, for instance, is also destined for reuse in another company.
