The NSRF 2014-2020 EU program funded the construction of the Waste Treatment Plant of Western Thessaly, with a budget of 31.3 million €, decided by the Regional Director of Thessaly.
The project has a full maturity of studies and licenses, developed by the Joint Venture of Design Offices in which E.P.T.A. Consultants - Designers (www.epta.gr) participates on behalf of the competent body P.ADY.TH SA.
The project creates a significant number of new jobs both during its operation and during its construction.

1. Unit of mechanical and biological treatment of mixed municipal waste (M.B.T.) with a capacity of 45,453 tons per year.
2. Treatment plant for biowaste and greens, separated at source, with an additional capacity of 13,752 tons per year.
