Valdemingómez, a complete and innovative waste management model

Madrid generates more than 4,000 tons of waste per day, which is treated in this Technology Park. VII edition activity summary

The Indian Leaders began their visit at the Visitors' Center of the Valdemingómez Technology Park. They were received by José Luis Cifuentes, Director of Promotion and Information, who explained to the Indian participants how Valdemingómez works, the different treatment centers, as well as the figures and technical data of the Park, which concentrates all the urban waste treatment facilities in Madrid, where the more than four thousand tons of waste generated daily in the city arrive. The Leaders were also able to see first-hand one of the Park's facilities, the La Paloma Center, whose function is to recover recyclable materials present in the waste from packaging bags and leftovers, and to separate and process organic matter to transform it into biostabilized waste.  

Waste management is a key sector for this edition of Indian Leaders. Lochan Sehra, Municipal Commissioner of Ahmedabad, considers waste management to be one of the main challenges facing his city, if not the first. The Indian private sector is also very aware of this challenge: Saurabh Jain is the co-founder of Trashcon, a company dedicated to waste segregation. Therefore, the visit to one of the most complete and innovative waste management models and a technical reference as the Valdemingómez Park was highly valued by the Leaders.
