Epremasa, a regional solid waste company based in Cordoba, Spain, and its affiliated company, Diputacion de Cordoba, recently added an enclosed composting component to a 190,000 tons/year "Recycling Park" in Montalban. Epremasa collects municipal solid waste (MSW) and recyclables from 72 towns around Cordoba, and brings them to its transfer stations within the region. MSW to be composted is unloaded onto a tipping floor. After oversized items are removed, material is loaded onto a conveyor that feeds a trommel screen. In 2009, Epremasa installed 13 Biodegma composting modules in an existing covered, but open-sided building, replacing its windrow operation. In terms of overall recovery from the incoming MSW and recycling streams, about half of what is received at the facility is recycled, about 12% is compost, about 20% is landfilled and about 18% is "mass reduction."
