Resource management through the utilization of municipal waste fractions

The „Upcycling Centre“ is a non-profit value-adding project for the recycling economy offering possibilities of qualification and integration that is realized in Southwest Germany (Neunkirchen, Saarland).

Here furniture, various other products and commonplace items are designed and produced from materials originating from commercial residual materials. The recycling-economy has the aim to install a cascade utilization chain by converting and revaluating commercial residues at a regional level. The approach also incorporates creative, social components, on one side, former residual materials gain value by upcycling, and on the other side, immigrants are integrated, and job seekers receive a qualification to manufacture the products.The creative and social aspirations of the project are on an equal footing as the aim of
the Upcycling Centre to promote a functioning recycling economy.

The European environmental initiative on raw materials has recently promoted the efforts in recycling and recovery of metal alloys. Extraction of purified higher-value alloy streams from non-ferrous metal waste turned out to be a challenging task due to the diversity of alloys and the resemblance in their physical properties.

Current Developments in European Waste-to-Energy
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
In December 2015, one year after withdrawing the first Circular Economy package, the Juncker Commission published a broader and more ambitious proposal with revised targets and harmonized calculation methods for recycling. In parallel, the European Commission is still working on the Energy Union, a strategy that is the core of the institution’s work in which Waste-to-Energy will play a role. Finally, the Commission will publish a communication focused on Waste-to-Energy aiming to explore the opportunities offered by Waste-to-Energy, particularly with regard to synergies between resource and energy efficiencies by the end of 2016.

Possibilities of Development of Municipal Waste Recycling and Incineration in Poland
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
One of the basic rules in the field of waste management is the use of processes which are located as high as possible in the waste hierarchy, while taking into consideration the life cycle thinking. This also applies to municipal waste management. Waste prevention is at the top of the hierarchy. This is followed by: preparation for reuse, recycling and other recovery processes, including thermal treatment (incineration) of waste with energy recovery. The disposal of waste, which includes, among others, landfilling, is at the bottom of the hierarchy. Thus, the objective is to move up the hierarchy, which means moving away from waste disposal towards waste recovery.
