Environmental study for optimal sites selection for incineration plant of refuse derived fuel in Lucca Province, Tuscany (Italy); Metodologie e tecniche di analisi ambientale per l`ubicazione `sostenibile` di impianti di smaltimento rifiuti: l`esperienza della Provincia di Lucca

Abstract

The present report describes the methodology and the main results of an environmental study aimed at the selection of the optimal sites for incineration plant of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) and the associated waste disposal landfill, in a defined territory. The study was commissioned by a local administrative Authority (Province of Lucca, northern Tuscany, Italy), and was carried out according to the indications of the `EEC Political Program of Action in favour of the environment and of a sustainable development`. In essence, the methodology takes into account both the major and extant descriptive elements of the environment under scrutiny, and the project main elements of the proposed plant. Additionally, considerations were included regarding the location of all the segments of the entire disposal plant, particularly the disposal landfill which is usually responsible for the greatest environmental impact. Finally, the results were compared with the limits indicated by the present regulations. Similar methods, were previously applied to different territories, and are still in progress. In order to estimate the fate of the air bone discharges from the incinerator into the selected potential area, a meteorological and diffusive study was undertaken to calculate the average annual levels by depositions on ground through  More>>

Finally, the results were compared with the limits indicated by the present regulations. Similar methods, were previously applied to different territories, and are still in progress. In order to estimate the fate of the air bone discharges from the incinerator into the selected potential area, a meteorological and diffusive study was undertaken to calculate the average annual levels by depositions on ground through dry and wet mechanisms. By comparison with the regulatory limits imposed to the stack emissions by the EEC Directives, the calculated ground level depositions were considerably lower. By taking into account a number of environmental features (such as the subjection of water-bearing layers, low risk of modification of ecological processes, low impact on the agricultural activities), of logistic reasons (large average extension to allow the location of all plants), and socio-economic elements (presence of large industrial plants, lower density of housing distribution), 14 sub-areas were identified and selected, mainly concentrated in the central-southern part of the potentially suitable area mentioned above, finally further subdivided in 2 priority levels. [Italiano] Il lavoro presenta i risultati ottenuti dall`ENEA nell`ambito di un incarico conferito dall`Amministrazione Provinciale di Lucca, riguardante la localizzazione delle aree idonee all`installazione di un impianto di termoutilizzazione energetica di CdR (Combustibile derivato dai Rifiuti) e di una discarica ad esso associata, in sintonia con gli indirizzi contenuti nel `Programma politico d`azione della Comunita` Europea a favore dell`ambiente e di uno sviluppo sostenibile`. La ricerca e` stata effettuata dall`ENEA attraverso il supporto di metodologie, basate su criteri di natura ambientale, gia` precedentemente applicate a diverse situazioni territoriali italiane (Provincia di Cremona, Comune di Latina ecc.). Nel territorio in oggetto la localizzazione e` stata ricondotta alle problematiche connesse con quella delle discariche, che presentano generalmente maggiore impatto ambientale. Per calcolare l`impatto dei rilasci del termoutilizzatore nella fascia di potenziale idoneita` e` stato effettuato uno studio meteo-diffusivo per calcolare i livelli medi annui di concentrazione in aria a livello del suolo dei principali inquinanti (CO, SO2, NO2, ecc.) e le deposizioni (secca e umida), assumendo come emissioni al camino i valori limite imposti dalle direttive CEE; i valori medi calcolati sono risultati notevolmente al di sotto dei limiti di legge (DPR 203/1988). Sono stati infine selezionati 14 siti, concentrati prevalentemente nella porzione centro-meridionale della fascia suddetta, successivamente suddivisai in due classi di priorita` sulla base di motivazioni ambientali (elevata soggiacenza della falda, assenza di rischio di alterazione dei processi ecologici, scarso impatto sulle attivita` agricole), logistiche (maggiore estensione media con possibilita` di ospitare tutti gli impianti) e socioeconomici (presenza di grandi complessi industriali, minore densita` di distribuzione delle abitazioni).}
