Disposal and recycling
FENIX NTM is not a dangerous product: it is made of paper and thermosetting resins.
At the end of its life cycle, it can be burned in authorised urban waste incinerators or used as energy recovery. Residual ash can be treated as solid urban waste (EAK Code 120105).
In the Arpa Industriale factory, FENIX NTM waste is used as fuel to generate part of the energy required for production.
