The cleanest incinerator

The aim of the research project “Landmonitoring” was to point out the effects of the new Bolzano incinerator on the environment.The Municipal Council and Ecocenter, which commissioned the study, commissioned the Department of Environmental Physics of the University of Trento, the pharmacological research institute Mario Negri in Milan and the eco-research laboratory in Bolzano to conduce out the study. Subsequently, the prestigious National Center for Atmospheric Research of Colorado (USA) and Cisam, a company specializing in environmental measurements, participated also to the research project. In addition to the weather data of the province, experts installed a sodar (vertical profiling) on ​​the roof of the waste incinerator plant and a lidar on the roof of the country house 12 in Bolzano to survey wind direction and intensity up to 3 km altitude. After the creation of a weather-mathematical model for the orography of the basin of Bolzano, the perfect conditions (the worst possible) were finally found on February 14, 2017 to carry out the measurements. 14 research teams were positioned at the sites with maximum fallout. These were equipped with 40 special bottles for air sampling. The air contained in the bottles was then evaluated with a high-sensitivity mass spectrometer. The result? At these locations and under these conditions, the waste incinerator has 0.08% particulate matter and 0.9% nitrogen dioxide of the total emissions measured. As Ecocenter president Stefano Fattor explained, "in the rest of the territory, the concentrations of all pollutants attributable to the incinerator are neither measurable nor quantifiable".

Technology meets architecture

As part of the expansion of the district heating network in Bolzano, the new thermal storage of Alperia near Bolzano South was recently put into operation. The new 43 meter high tower, which was built by Atzwanger AG together with partner companies, stores the energy from the waste heat of the incinerator. The storage capacity of 5,800 m³ of water with a temperature of approximately 95 ° C corresponds to a storage capacity of 220 MWh, will compensate for the peak loads of heat collection of the district heating network, allows even more customers to connect to the district heating network and continue to provide all safe and clean heat. As a contribution to the architectural enhancement of the city, Alperia announced an architectural competition for the new heat storage tower in collaboration with the Bolzano architectural association. The winning project comes from a team of architects from Bolzano. Result of the competition is visible every night: the tower is covered with a backlit aluminum facade. Through different sized holes in the cladding, which emulate water bubbles, in combination with several hundred LEDs, creates an impressive play of colors in the evening.

QC Terme Dolomiti: Eco-friendly building services in a big way

Since December 2016 Val di Fassa has had a new ultramodern thermal centre by the name of QC Terme Dolomiti. The three-storey facility in Pozza di Fassa, with its 4,300 sq.m. of floor space, comprises whirlpools, Kneipp paths, waterfalls, Japanese baths, steam baths and a big outdoor pool. The building services – heating, ventilation and sanitary engineering – were supplied by Atzwanger AG. Great importance was attached to the ecological sustainability of the low-carbon wood pellet heating system, which is in keeping with the holistic philosophy on which the wellness centre is based: close to nature and highly efficient. The same applies to the fire protection systems – developed to the latest technical standards and implemented by Atzwanger AG.

Sustainability and outstanding architecture: Bolzano’s new thermal storage tower

In addition to becoming more environmentally friendly, Bolzano will soon boast a new architectural attraction in the form of a 43m high thermal storage tower belonging to Bolzano’s district heating provider, Ecotherm. The tower, illuminated with LED “drops”, will balance out peak thermal energy demand, making it possible to supply an additional 1,500 households (at the moment, the number stands at 3,500) with thermal energy using the heat recovered from the new waste utilisation plant in Bolzano Sud. With a load capacity of 5,850 m³ and a storage capacity of 230 MWh, it will be one of the largest thermal storage units in Italy, not to mention one of the most visually appealing. Works are going ahead at full speed, and should be finished by November 2016.
