Mechanical-Biological Waste Treatment – an International Overview –

The article demonstrated a solid background and a great performance in affordable waste treatment technology. Achieving the strict stabilization criteria’s with the technology invarious countries, the know-how of the partner and fit for use GORE Cover made its way from the early days. At the given experience, not only in Germany, a cost effective and sustainable approach by choosing treatment technologies is key in the future MSW treatment to our point of view. However, even if a fully encapsulated plant is desired to what ever reason – reference plants even on this specific request are available.

For more than 20 years, W. L. GORE & Associates has been in the waste treatment business. Our first experience started right after the reunification of Germany supplying the first GORE Cover into a Soil Remediation project. Within a short time period thereafter, the first demonstration projects were implemented for the category of Separate Organic Waste (SOW) treatment, leading to the many successful full scale operating plants seen today. From there, the cover technology was expanded into the category stabilizing the organic fraction of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and at the same time input material from waste water sludge (biosolids) and various other organic wastes. The cover is supplied directly or by an authorized supplier network of global sustainable partners to the end user. Today, the cover technology is used for the purpose of organic treatment in more than 15,000 tons per day including stabilization, mass reduction and drying before energetic use throughout Europe, Asia Pacific and North and South America. The cover technology provides the operator a high performing technology that meets the regulation at a low investment costutilizing a flexible design from the standard heap version to fully encapsulated plants and capable of CO2 equivalents of 12 kg/t input material.

The following will discuss how the GORE Cover technology is capable to successfully optimize the process of treating organic waste for meeting strict stabilization and emissionr egulations, while producing a high quality output finished product (RDF, CLO or stabilized material).

Cyprus acceded to the European Union in 2002 and since then is required to implement the environmental legislation enforced in the Union, to bring the country in line with other Member States. Waste management is a particularly problematic area, which has received relatively little attention in the past in Cyprus, and the treatment and management of livestock and industrial wastes are a specific, major problem in the country.

Composting is a desirable technique to recover the organic fraction of solid wastes for municipalities. It offers the obvious beneficial uses of the resources and creates a useful product from organic waste that would otherwise be landfilled. Since the European Landfill Directive (EU 1999/31) requires the reduction of significant organic part of the MSW to be landfilled, composting has become the viable alternative to landfills. Among the alternatives for the elimination of MSW, composting is widely accepted as the most sustainable strategy for the decomposition and stabilization of the organic fraction of MSW (Hansen et al., 1993; Chefetz et al., 1996).

Development of local municipal solid waste management in the Western Transdanubia region of Hungary

Hungarian municipal solid wastes (MSW) management has developed tremendously over the past 15 years. More than 3,000 landfills and dumps had been closed, just to mention one improvement. However, still, lots of work is necessary to accomplish the EU’s ambitious aim of decreasing landfilling and increasing recycling and composting.

Bioabfall im europäischen Vergleich - Erfassung, Aufkommen, Qualitäten, Verwertung, Kosten
© Witzenhausen-Institut für Abfall, Umwelt und Energie GmbH (11/2018)
In der Europäischen Union fallen jährlich 118 bis 138 Millionen Tonnen Bioabfälle an, von denen zurzeit nur 32 bis 37 % (ca. 40 Millionen Tonnen pro Jahr (M tpa) effizient recycelt werden und zu hochwertigen Komposten und Gärprodukten verarbeitet werden. Größtenteils werden die Bioabfälle nach wie vor in Europa deponiert, womit eine unkontrollierte Freisetzung von Treibhausgasen einhergeht. Mit bis zu 50 % Bioabfall im Siedlungsabfall ist Bioabfall ein wesentlicher Abfallstrom, der in einer Kreislaufwirtschaft und nachhaltigen Ressourcenpolitik eine wesentliche Rolle spielt.

Entsorgung von biogenen Abfallfraktionen in der VR China

China hat in den letzten Jahren gewaltige Schritte in Richtung einer nachhaltigen Abfallwirtschaft gemacht. Probleme bereiten nach wie vor die organischen Fraktionen, welche die Hauptursachen für klimarelevante Emissionen, Sickerwasser aus Deponien und Probleme bei der thermischen Behandlung sind.
