Project executed by
Envac Iberia SA
Project status
Spain / Residential area

Can Gambus, a new quarter of Sabadell of 4.500 dwellings, was urbanized in 2007, but economical crisis has caused a delay of the construction project itself.

All pneumatic components are already installed (inlets, piping and terminal), but the Envac system has not yet been taken into operation.

The system is designed to collect 3 waste streams, with 244 valves and around 7 Km of pipe. It is foreseen to start it up in 2017.
