Current State of Waste Management NEWS
The Danish waste management system in Denmark has a long tradition for recovering energy from waste, which goes back to the beginning of 1900. It was however not until the 1990’s the major shift from landfilling of waste to incineration of waste took off. In Today, insignificant amounts of waste are going to landfills and Denmark is characterized by a high degree of incineration, amounting to 54% in 2010 (municipal solid waste, i.e. both household waste and industrial waste), which is the highest percentage and the highest amount of waste per capita in the EU.

PUBLICATIONS EXPERTS
 
Waste poses a major problem area as well as a great business potential in countries throughout the globe. Therefore, cross-regional collaboration between leading companies, universities, and public authorities is not only necessary to overcome problems of environmental degradation and pollution; it is also good business for everyone.

A new generation of WtE facilities replacing existing capacity is being established in several places in Europe, e.g. in Denmark. The majority of these new facilities feature a very high efficiency with respect to both energy recovery and environmental Performance

The management of waste in Denmark is determined by the EU legislation and the Danish Waste Management Strategy as well as several pieces of Danish legislation that regulate several aspects of waste management, energy systems, agricultural by-products, acceptance criteria, design and permitting criteria for facilities etc.

 




BEST PRACTICE

Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facility

Renergia, a brand new Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facility opened in Canton Lucerne, shows that Waste-to-Energy can provide reliable heat for industries.

Category: Incineration / Waste-to-Energy plant
Executing firm: Renergia Zentralschweiz AG

MBT Ljubljana, Slovenia

In Slovenia arises one of the largest and most modern waste treatment plants in Europe.
