Few cities can boast of having a solid waste treatment system like this one, and this is the world’s largest. An intricate and complex work, it is a system for the collection of treatment of urban solid waste by vacuum serving a large area of the Parque das Nações north zone. The plant has two storeys and is equipped the latest and most innovative technology and equipment. This is a rare opportunity to observe the workings of such an impressive infrastructure from close up.
