Abstract

This paper deals with a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the particular industrial solid waste generated from the renowned manufacturing sector of motor and sailing pleasure crafts in Marche Region (Central Italy, Adriatic Sea side). Three case-study boat-builder companies, located in the Marche regional district and selected for their representative production in glass-fibre or carbon fibre reinforced composite materials, were examined. Specific waste production coefficient values per employee were derived on a four-year temporal range (2006–2009) and also two original waste production coefficients (per boat-area unit and per boat-weight unit) were proposed. Furthermore, a chemical-physical characterisation was carried out for two representative composite waste typologies of the boat manufacturing sector, namely a carbon-fibre reinforced plastic residue and a glass-fibre reinforced plastic residue. Keywords: boat building, characterisation, industrial waste, production. 1 Introduction In accordance with the European waste framework legislation (Directive 2008/98/EC [1]) as implemented in Italy with the Legislative Decree 152/2006 [2], an integrated and sustainable waste management strategy should be defined
