companies will build an effluent treatment plant

From an investment of US $ 60 million provided by the world Bank Construction will begin on a new effluent treatment plant in Argentina.

The establishment will be located in the Buenos Aires town of Lanús and will serve to treat the waste of the companies that are established in the Tanner Industrial Park (PIC), projected for that area.

It is an initiative promoted by the Matanza Riachuelo Basin Authority (ACUMAR) that it plans to start the works once the construction sector can resume its activities within the framework of the measures applied by the national government to combat the pandemic of the coronavirus.

The initial date had been established for the second quarter of this year. That is, from last April. But the deepening of the restrictions established by the sanitary stocks will delay this period, at least, until next June.

At that time, 300 employees, including operators, professionals and technicians, will begin to build the plant with an execution period of 23 months.

In this sense, Daniel Larrache, general coordinator of ACUMAR’s World Bank loan executing unit, explained that the construction will be carried out by a private consortium led by the construction company Panedile.

According to the official, the plant will have an area of ​​23,700 m2 and will have state-of-the-art technology that will allow the collection and processing of between 8,000 and 12,000 m3 per day of waste from the tanneries’ production, which represents the tanning of some 12,000 hides and will have cutting-edge technology.

“In this way, it will be possible to contribute significantly to the sanitation of the Matanza-Riachuelo Basin, one of the main objectives that we have set ourselves as a result of the new management led by Martín Sabbatella,” the official assured EconoSus.

Cross relations

In addition to Panedile, the consortium in charge of the works is made up of Stucco and Ecopreneur. The first two construction companies appear in the cause of the notebooks Oscar Centeno, who was a driver for Roberto Baratta, a former second in command of the Federal Planning Ministry led by Julio De Vido.

So much Hugo Dragonetti, owner of Panedile, how Enrique Wagner, holder of Esuco and former president of the Argentine Chamber of Construction, he were processed by Claudio Bonadío, the deceased judge who was in charge of investigating the largest bribery and bribery payment network for public officials in the history of Argentina.

Both businessmen were imprisoned – and their prosecutions continue – despite the fact that the cause seems to have entered a period of lethargy after the disembarkation of the Everyone’s Front at the Government House.

In fact, after the assumption of Alberto Fernández in replacement of Mauricio Macri, both businessmen had applied to command the reins of the Argentine Chamber of Construction (CAMARO), with supposed support from Kirchnerism.

However, in the new executive committee of the business entity elected last April, they do not appear since a single list was agreed that consecrated Ivan Szczech as successor of Julio Crivelli.

The new president comes from the Entre Ríos delegation and previously served as Deputy Secretary and President of the CAMARCO Housing Commission, in addition to having been vice-president of the Inter-American Federation of the Construction Industry (FIIC).

However, this defeat of Dragonetti and Wagner did not prevent them from the organization that now leads the controversial former mayor of Lanýs and Cristina Kircnher’s right-hand man in the battle against Grupo Clarín by the media law, awarded them the millionaire work in the Cuenca Riachuelo-Matanza.

A work that, according to official information, is part of the initiative promoted by the ACUMAR and financed by the World Bank through the IBRD Credit 7706-R, which also contemplates the construction, already underway, of a Tanner Industrial Park (PIC) in Lanús.

The play

The contract includes the preparation of the executive project, detailed engineering, process engineering, execution of civil works, supply and installation of all electromechanical, electrical equipment, instruments, automation for the treatment process, commissioning of the plant and technical support and advice to ACUMAR during the operation stage for a period of one year.

The objective of the entity in charge of Sabbatella is to transfer the small and medium tanneries to that park since, individually, they could not face the costs of a correct management of industrial effluents.

“In this way, we avoid environmental contamination and allow hundreds of workers in the sector not to be harmed,” added Larrache, for whom bringing together the companies in the sector in the same location will facilitate their control and monitoring, “allowing the detection of inconveniences with greater anticipation and streamlining tasks aimed at reducing their impact on society and the environment. “

In addition, more efficient waste management will be made possible, emissions to the atmosphere and the impacts of liquid effluents will be minimized, since the group of industries will share the same treatment technology, thereby homogenizing the quality of the final discharge.

According to ACUMAR, the tanning activity, together with electroplating and refrigerators, is considered one of the most critical for its capacity for industrial discharges with organic and chemical loading of chromium and sulphides. Currently, there are 62 tanneries in operation in the Basin and the highest concentration of establishments is in Lanús.
