Description of the job

The reclamation of the former Valtanaro dyeworks which currently hosts the new Miroglio logistic centre, required asbestos-removal work on machinery, pipes and roofing. Tecnologie Industriali & Ambientali carried out the asbestos and mineral fibre removal operations, but also mechanical demolitions and re-roofing on a surface of approx. 17,000 m2.

Interventions were carried out on:
  • some dying machineries containing friable asbestos mainly in their gaskets. A static-dynamic confinement was required
  • pipes of approx. 11,000 ml coated with mineral wool
  • cement-asbestos roofing 17.000 mq.
Mechanical demolitions involved:
  • machineries, tanks, silos, brackets and pipes


The intervention also included the selective sorting of waste materials (mineral wool, steel, aluminium, electrical cables, etc.), iron recovery and disposal of materials in authorised landfills. The roofing reclamation was carried out on a surface of 17,000 m2. The reconstruction included:
  • steam barrier recovery
  • installation of new insulating systems
  • installation of new roofing
  • eaves waterproofing
  • installation of new pitches

Critical points

In order to respect the timing set for the reclamation of the whole complex, demolition, remediation and reconstruction works were carried out in only 6 months. This required a huge organisation and coordination work.

Amount of the contract: € 900.000
