By treating landfill waste that cannot be recycled, WTE facilities are helping to support a “circular economy” in the European Union. The facilities extract pure raw materials, like metals and minerals, after incineration; they advance a carbon-free society and reduce EU dependence on outside energy sources; and they offer a sensible alternative to landfilling.
However, some EU member states have insufficient WTE capacity to process combustible waste, while others have an overcapacity. The result: An unbalanced situation of combustible waste processing in the EU.
To help correct the imbalance, our client AVR published a position paper calling for:
