The aim of this work is to point out the importance of wood refuse and discards of production and the necessity to integrate differentiated knowledge, by using data and experiences in different fields, with the aim of increasing wood salvage and to guide it to recycling and reuse, obtaining products to put on the market and avoiding the efforts of selection being lost. In Sicily, thanks to the united action of RILEGNO and of the firms with which RILEGNO makes some agreements, the wood is taken away in increasing amounts to refuse dumps and is sent to recycling firms, to establishments that are, unfortunately, thousands kilometres away. This causes intolerable economic and environmental costs for the movement of lots of trucks. The settlement in Sicily of recycling activities, in strategically chosen places, could solve the problem with important environmental, social and employment effects.

Abstract

The aim of this work is to point out the importance of wood refuse and discards of production and the necessity to integrate differentiated knowledge, by using data and experiences in different fields, with the aim of increasing wood salvage and to guide it to recycling and reuse, obtaining products to put on the market and avoiding the efforts of selection being lost. In Sicily, thanks to the united action of RILEGNO and of the firms with which RILEGNO makes some agreements, the wood is taken away in increasing amounts to refuse dumps and is sent to recycling firms, to establishments that are, unfortunately, thousands kilometres away. This causes intolerable economic and environmental costs for the movement of lots of trucks. The settlement in Sicily of recycling activities, in strategically chosen places, could solve the problem with important environmental, social and employment effects.
