For a long time, the developed world no longer regards waste as a substance that is useless and should
be discarded. Thus, rules, regulations and directives are issued which require for the landfill manager
to treat waste before its disposal and to obtain as much substance from it which can later be reused.
In recent year, the world has seen different ways of processing waste. One of them is a mechanical
biological treatment. In the past, it served mainly to prepare waste for disposal and to reduce its weight
and volume, but has been in the recent years increasingly focused on the treatment of secondary fuels
and other secondary raw materials that can be reused.
The aim of my diploma thesis is to introduce and optimize the technology of mechanical treatment in
CERO Ajdovščina where a new hall for mechanical treatment will be built.
The theoretical part presents the legislation on waste and the process of mechanical biological
treatment. The practical part presents the state of the landfill, the type of technology for mechanical
treatment in CERO Ajdovščina and its optimization.
