WasteServ Malta - Sant'Antnin Waste Treatment
Sant Antnin Waste Treatment

The Sant’Antnin Waste Treatment Plant materialised with the help of the European Union. The total investment costs amounted to €27 million. From this amount, €16.7 million where eligible for funding from the EU Cohesion Fund (2004-2006) at a co-financing rate of 70% EU and 30% local Funds.


Until May 2017, the plant consisted of two main areas;

 

The Mechanical and Biological Treatment Plant, where organic waste is fed into anaerobic digestion tanks. The outputs of this process is bio-gas and compost-like material;
The Materials Recovery Facility where recyclable items from households used to be separated into different waste streams to be sold abroad for recycling.

 

Unfortunately, in May 2017 a fierce fire completly destroyed the Materials Recovery Facility. As a result, most of the material recovery operations were transferred to the Malta North Facility, in which a particular line was reconfigured to accomodate this unplanned operation.
