This study, funded by AGAC S.p.A., was developed to obtain the approval by the Province of Reggio Emilia for the enlargement of the waste disposal landfill facility at Poiatica di Carpineti (Reggio Emilia). It was prepared on the basis of the Guidelines produced by the Emilia - Romagna Region to assess the impact of a landfill on the environment. The study includes five chapters: programme framework, project framework, synergistic anthropic factors independent from the project, baseline conditions of the environment, environmental impact of the project and alternatives. The study includes annexes that show the pertinent cartographic representations, investigate the impact of the project on the different environmental factors and report pictures of the landfill and adjacent areas in winter and summer time. The non-technical synthesis illustrates the relevant aspects of the study in a user-friendly language for non-expert people.

The publication is available in the form of a PDF file supplied on a CD-ROM.
