The Plant

The platform installations of Ambiente Mare, have a total storage capacity of 4.000 sqm and are located in Marina di Ravenna (Ravenna) in an area of about 9.000 sqm, overlooking the Piombone Canal zone through its 60 m berthing quay.
Depending on the type and its chemical and physical characteristics, every single waste consignment is subject to internal laboratory analysis and tests and is then forwarded to a specific area to have one of the following treatments carried out:

  • Water treatment
    Following a chemical and physical treatment all waters are destined to biological purification where a microbiological treatment remains continuously active capable of also operating on sea water.

  • Oil treatment
    Thanks to the heating and centrifugation process, the fraction of light hydrocarbons can be recovered from oily mixtures (for example bilge oil and oil sludge generated on-board a ship).

  • Emulsion treatment
    The area is specialised in the treatment of “thin emulsions” mainly deriving from the metal-mechanics industry during which water is separated and subsequently purified from its oily residues.


  • Sludge treatment
    All wastewater residues deriving from other areas are dehydrated and rendered inert so as to become transferable to specific landfill sites or other specifically authorised plants.

  • Grey water treatment
    It’s a new section of the plant destined for the collection of grey water generated on tank vessels with light hydrocarbon residues (petrol, naphtha…) with a storage capacity of 500 tons.
    In this section, through the settling process, water is separated and destined for purification whilst hydrocarbons are recovered. This plant, unique to Italy, allows for the complete satisfaction of all disposal requests deriving from the various port areas.
