Amounts of waste materials and recycled products
In Italy there is a growing awareness of the problems related to the amounts of urban and industrial waste. In recent years the effort to find solutions for the existing problems has been very intense. This work resulted not only in the approval of the harmonisation of the Italian standards to those of the EU, but this effort also lead to a complex series of essential interventions and measures.

The main waste streams, in addition to urban waste, are:
- waste from building and demolition;
- exhaust foundry mud and sands;
- air quenched foundry slag (slow quenching process);
- tannery sludge;
- thermal treatment ashes from the leather industry;
- bauxite processing residuals;
- titanium dioxide production residuals;
- perforation residues from methane-wells;
- fly ashes from power plants or urban waste incinerators;
- gypsum;
- batteries;
- products of the breaker's yard;
- waste with asbestos;
- industrial toxic or radioactive waste.
