At Tecam we develop solutions to treat and valorise the waste that is generated by your industrial activities. We design tailor-made facilities, taking into account the origin, composition and hazardousness of the waste.

Liquid waste can be valorised by treating it in incineration systems.

Its high energy content means it can be used to generate steam, hot water or electricity.


Paste-like waste can be incinerated in rotary kilns.

Its high calorific value means it can be used to produce energy.


Sludge and slurry can be treated using different technologies, including aerobic digestion (ATAD), anaerobic digestion (for biomethanisation), drying and/or pyrolysation to generate fixed carbon.

Once treated, it can be used as fertiliser for agricultural soil.


These types of waste come from laboratories, hospitals, medical centres and other health industry sources. As they are potentially hazardous, they must be treated using methods that are both specialised and completely safe.

Different technologies are used to treat these types of waste in accordance with their particular type.


Solvents can be treated using very similar processes to those for valorising liquids.

Treating solvents generates energy that can be consumed by the plant itself or sold.


Owing to its toxicity and hazardousness, this type of waste must be incinerated at high temperatures in order to ensure it is completely oxidised.

Waste that contains phosphides, isocyanates, alkali metals, acids, mercury and other compounds is considered hazardous.


These types of waste are generated by the use or processing of certain igneous or gangue rocks that have a high concentration of naturally occurring radioactive nuclides.

Such waste requires specific processes, which commonly combine different treatment technologies.


Municipal waste can have a wide variety of origins and characteristics. Different combinations of technologies are used to treat urban waste in accordance with its particular origin and characteristics.

Is Waste Valorization environmentally friendly?

Waste Valorization has become the alternative technology for energy recovery that has minimum impact on the environment and is capable to generate heat and electricity. Pyrolysis plants and waste incineration plants include flue gas treatment systems afterwards that collect and eliminate the gases generated, following an efficient and safe procedure, to guarantee maximum respect for people and the environment.
