Waste

The airport has a plant for transferring non-hazardous wasteand several points for the temporary storage of hazardous waste. 

The airport generates a wide variety of waste. The management of this waste prioritises assessment over elimination, within the possibilities offered by local waste-management services. The separated materials are:

  • Selective collection of similar to domestic waste: paper, cardboard, lightweight containers and glass containers.
  • Mixture of similar to domestic waste.
  • Plant waste.
  • Old tyres.
  • Waste from construction and demolition.
  • Inert waste from minor maintenance work.
  • Flat glass.
  • Metal waste (non-polluted scrap metal).
  • Waste wood.
  • Other bulky waste.
  • Waste from electrical and electronic equipment.
  • Sanitary waste.
  • Ionic fire-detection equipment and luggage-detection equipment.
  • Vehicles at the end of their service life.
  • Hazardous waste.

The airport has a plant for transferring non-hazardous waste. Although it does not carry out waste-management tasks, this enables the waste to be concentrated and temporarily stored under improved conditions, especially the non-separated part of similar to domestic waste.

It also has several points for the temporary storage of hazardous waste, all of which are equipped with pollution prevention measures, depending on their type. In these areas, waste is deposited selectively in containers until removal by the authorised services.

Meanwhile, lightweight containers and mixed similar to domestic waste produced in the new terminal area are transported by a pneumatic system to the transfer plant.
