The Impact of Pay-As-You-Throw Schemes on Municipal Solid Waste Management: The Exemplar Case of the County of Aschaffenburg, GermanyJuergen Morlok, Harald Schoenberger, David Styles, Jose-Luis Galvez-Martos, Barbara Zeschmar-Lahl
The “pay-as-you-throw” (PAYT) scheme is an economic instrument for waste management that applies the “polluter pays” principle by charging the inhabitants of municipalities according to the amount of residual, organic, and bulky waste they send for third-party waste management. When combined with well-developed infrastructure to collect the different waste fractions (residual waste, paper and cardboard, plastics, bio waste, green cuttings, and many recyclables) as well as with a good level of citizens’ awareness, its performance has frequently been linked to an increase in the collection rates of recyclables.
REDWAVE MBT Jiangsu - – High-Tech Waste Processing for China
More than 200 waste-to-energy (WtE) plants are operating in China nowadays. One of them in the City of Lianyungang, Shandong Province north of Shanghai, will be complemented by a pre-treatment plant for municipal solid waste (MSW).

Waste-to-Resources 2017 Ways for increased material recycling of material flows from MBTMatthias Kühle-Weidemeier
By implementing modern thermal and non-thermal waste treatment technologies, waste management hast made a big leap forward. In the last two decades, Central Europe has been the motor of the development. The first decade of this century has been a period of development and installation of new processes in numerous locations. This was followed by nearly a decade of minor progress. This article will analyse the current situation and show how higher recycling rates even from mixed and residual waste can be achieved.
Waste-to-Resources 2017 Mechanical biological waste treatment plant for Bangalore west zoneMatthias Kuehle-Weidemeier, Karsten Kanning, Ketel Ketelsen
Proper solid waste management is a problem in many developing countries, especially in their big cities. Wasteconsult International was developing a solution for the municipal waste processing for the West Zone district of the Indian mega-city Bangalore. For that purpose, studies regarding the quality and quantity of the waste had to be made first in order to decide which processing concept is the most favourable. Incineration and Mechanical-
Biological treatment was taken into consideration. According to the attributions of the waste, MBT process with a convertible bio-drying and composting process was chosen and designed.

waste treatment plants.
Characterization of municipal solid waste by particle size and pilot sorting testsYves Bernard, P. Eng., Marie-Andrée St-Pierre, M. Sc.,
The Province of Québec in Canada has the objective to ban disposal (landfilling) of organic matter until 2020.
Evaluation of moisture removal in Bio-drying process with auto-controlled aeration systemJae-Ram Park, Dong-Hoon Lee, Sun-Bong Choi, Ruifeng Guo, Geun–Yong Ham
The bio-drying process, used within MBT facilities in order to produce high-quality SRF,
improves productivity of SRF and minimizes disposal of MBT residue. Moisture removal
during bio-drying of mechanically sorted organic residue from an SRF production facility,
composed of only mechanical separation processes, was evaluated in this study.

Processing for ChinaArno Möller
While recycling is a standard practice in the West, China’s MSW management is still
focused on incineration and landfill.
Implementation of Anaerobic Treatment into Mechanical Biological Treatment Plants (MBT)Axel Huber
The German approach of Mechanical Biological Treatment Plants (MBT) initially was
driven by the target that the treated substrate is fulfilling the criteria to be deposited off
in landfills; the overall energy balance of the system was not relevant.

Kompogas® Dry Anaerobic Digestion and BioMethan Gas Upgrading Technologies in modern MBTs to Produce
Carbon-Neutral Vehicle GasLukas Heer
While MBT plants traditionally focus on mechanically sorting selected material fractions
from a given MSW waste stream and on stabilizing the organic fraction to be used e.g. as landfill cover, a modern waste management system requires much more.
