Technical and management innovation in the process of treatment of special and hazardous waste in a perspective of circular economy
In the systems of circular economy, designed to regenerate themselves, the products retain their value added for as long as possible and there is no waste. When a product reaches the end of the life cycle, the resources remain within the economic system, so they can be reused several times for production purposes and thus create new value. From this point of view, the Italian regions present strong gaps regarding the implementation of both the recovery processes and treatment processes and, consequently, different entrepreneurial tissues emerge relatively to the recycling industry. This paper develops a proposal aimed to optimize the process of treatment and recycling of special and hazardous waste through an industrial system of "glass ceramization" and the realization of tiles of inert material used in the market of public decoration or construction. In such a way, our industrial waste management systems will become a driving force of the economy and innovation.
