Construction of an Organic Waste Processing Facility

One of ELDIA’s top priorities over the course of its 26-year operation has been the pursuit of minimization of the waste led to the landfill. Having inaugurated its new, state-of-the-art sorting plant, which has reduced the landfill waste by 20%, the company has begun the construction of an organic waste processing facility.

Once again, this project is funded by the EEA and Norway Grants, as part of the Business Innovation Programme in Greece with the assistance of Innovation Norway.

“ORGANIC WASTE PROCESSING, FROM LANDFILLING TO CIRCULAR ECONOMY” is a trailblazing project and the plant will be the first in Greece to welcome and process all types of unconsumed foods. The procedure that will be followed will isolate the organic waste from its packaging, creating a suitable pulp for biogas-to-energy plants, while the latter will be forwarded to the company’s new sorting plant.

ELDIA has already contacted shopping malls, hotels and supermarkets, and is also expected to receive the kitchen waste from municipalities of the local area.

The Ambassador of Norway’s Visit to our new Sorting Plant

In the constant quest of finding new, more eco-friendly and more efficient methods of operation, ELDIA, with the aid of Norsk Gjenvinning and Innovation Norway (EEA and Norway Grants), has now completed the new sorting plant of recyclable materials.

This state-of-the-art project is designed to receive 20,000 tons per year, create new job positions, reduce the CO2 emissions by 40,462 tons per year, and decrease the landfill waste by 20%.

Recently, we were honored to welcome to our new facilities the Norwegian Ambassador Frode Overland Andersen and members of the Norwegian Embassy in Athens, giving them the chance to observe the progress of the plant.

Participation of ELDIA S.A. in the MoBiSol Project

Construction of a state-of-the-art sorting plant

In the attempt of constant upgrade and development of our activities, the construction and operation of a state-of-the-art sorting plant is being planned. Hence, we are delighted to announce that our new project “Efficiency in Sorting via Automation: ELDIA’s New Venture” is now underway. 

Its implementation is largely supported and funded by the EEA and Norway Grants, as part of the Business Innovation Programme in Greece with the assistance of Innovation Norway.

We also regard the cooperation with the pioneering company Norsk Gjenvinning (NGN) as a great success, as their insight in the waste management field will be of great contribution and assistance in the construction and operation of the unit. 



The state-of-the-art sorting plant is designed to process up to 20,000 tons per year. This will be achieved with the latest, most advanced equipment, which will increase the efficiency and productivity significantly (by a factor of x3 in relation to the existing plant). 

ELDIA’s constant aim to tackle social and environmental issues implies ceaseless efforts in helping the society. In this case, new job openings will be created, COemissions will be reduced by 40,462 t/year, and waste directed to the landfill will be minimized.

It is expected that the sorting plant will be ready for operation by the end of 2021.


Innovation for open top container service


Through the COMPOSITION Project along with CERTH we have deployed fill-level sensons at a scrap metal container to test its functionality.

Through this application, we will be able to get notifications about the fill-level of our open top contains located at our customers sites.

When the fill level reaches the 80% mark, the logistics department will be notified. As a result, the replacement of a full container with an empty one will be scheduled ahead of time, hence increasing the customer service level.
