Material-specific waste treatment as an integrated component of RETech export

The German Recycling Technologies and Waste Management Partnership e.V. was established at the end of 2011 as a result of the Recycling and Efficiency Technology Initiative of the Federal Ministry of the Environment. RETech activities are focused on the promotion of applying sustainable environmental technology of German Recycling abroad. RETech supports all areas of waste management. German knowhow and German technology can help to improve the situation of waste management worldwide. By the example of Arab states and the PRC, this paper briefly outlines the status of waste management and points out the potential for German manufacturers and consultants.

The waste management industry must increasingly align itself to the provisions of sustainable resource and climate protection goals. One of the central global tasks of the future in this field is the ensuring of a sustainable – in other words economically, ecologically and socially sound – supply of raw materials and energy. The waste industry can make an important contribution in both fields. In Germany a positive interim Balance can be drawn here. Especially the positive ecological effects of the avoidance, utilisation and disposal of waste have been confirmed by numerous scientific studies. In Germany the recycling industry now makes a significant contribution to climate protection, whereas in many developing and emerging countries around 10 to 15 per cent of the climate-relevant emissions come from waste-industry processes. The construction of modern waste and recycling management therefore makes a significant contribution to the solving of these global future Tasks.

Finep and its role in Urban Solid Waste Management in Brazil
© Wasteconsult International (5/2015)
Providing good solid waste management (SWM) services continues to be a major challenge in most developing countries. In Brazil, due to lack of organisation and/or financial resources, activities such as collection, transportation, processing, treatment and disposal, which were at the responsibility of municipalities, are being outsourced to private companies, in an attempt to soothe public budget constraints and enhance the quality of the services. However, given the low economic feasibility of the current technologies in Brazil, the country remains a long way from ensuring sustainability in this sector. In this context, the Brazilian Innovation Agency (Finep) has sought to assist companies in promoting innovation in SWM, either by backing low-interest loans or granting economic subvention for the acquisition of goods, services and labour. The results, though still modest, are encouraging.

Municipal Solid Waste Management in Turkey: Status, Challenges and Future Strategies
© Wasteconsult International (5/2015)
As in many developing countries, municipal solid waste (MSW) is one of the major environmental problems in Turkey. Problems associated with MSW are difficult to address, but efforts towards more efficient and environmentally acceptable waste disposal continue in Turkey. Although strict regulations on the management of solid waste are in place, undesirable disposal methods such as open dumping still have been widely applied in Turkey.

Notwendige Treiber für Ressourceneffizienz in der Abfallwirtschaft
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2014)
Abfall wird vielfach als Ressource am falschen Ort bezeichnet. Die österreichische Abfallwirtschaft ist weltweit ein Vorreiter bei der Nutzung dieser Ressource. Das bestehende System (rechtlich, wirtschaftlich, technisch) bietet dabei sowohl positive als auch negative Anreize diese Ressourcen optimal zu verwenden. In dieser Arbeit wird das bestehende System der EU und Österreichs in Hinblick auf Anreize zur Steigerung der Ressourceneffizienz (Kostenwahrheit, steuerliche Aspekte, Eigentumsverhältnisse, Recyclingquoten, Ziele etc.) analysiert. Im Anschluss daran werden die notwendigen Treiber für Ressourceneffizienz definiert. Zum Abschluss werden Vorschläge und mögliche Maßnahmen für eine Messung im Rahmen eines Ressourceneffizienzindikators und zur Verbesserung der österreichischen Ressourceneffizienz präsentiert.

Muss die Abfallhierarchie entsorgt werden?
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2014)
Mit der Richtlinie 98/2008/EG wurde in Europe eine Prioritätenfolge, die so genannte Abfallhierarchie, für Maßnahmen in Bereich der Abfallwirtschaft festgelegt. Diese fünfstufige Reihung bietet auf den ersten Blick eine einfache und rasche Entscheidungshilfe, welche Behandlungsarten für Abfälle zu bevorzugen bzw. zu vermeiden sind. In der Praxis zeigt sich jedoch, dass die in der Abfallhierarchie bevorzugen Optionen, Vermeidung und Wiederverwendung, zu wenig zur Anwendung kommen und die Abfallmenge weiterhin ansteigt.

Recovery of Phosphorus from Sewage Sludge Ashes with the RecoPhos Process
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2014)
Recycling of phosphorus from sewage sludge provides a sustainable solution for the production of this fi nite resource essential for human nutrition. The RecoPhos process uses the innovative InduCarb-reactor design in which the ashes from sludge incineration plants are molten and trickle down an inductively heated packed bed of carbon. The reactions taking place inside the reactor for production of high quality phosphorus are based on the same principle as the well known Woehler process. In the RecoPhos research project (receiving funding from the European Union) the process is developed using modelling and lab scale experiments.
