Waste and Recycling - South-East European Forum


3rd South-East European Conference & Exhibition on Waste

Management, Recycling & Environment

28-30 March 2012, Sofia, Bulgaria

                                         ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM OUR PARTNERS

1. Confederation of European Waste-to-Energy Plants CEWEP

2. Association of Cities and Regions for Recycling and sustainable Resource management ACR+

3. Recycling Technology



CEWEP welcomes the ‘R1 Guidelines’ that the European Commission’s DG Environment published on 1st July:
The Guidelines clarify the calculation method for the energy efficiency (R1) formula set out in the Waste Framework Directive (WFD) 2008/98/EC.
They will help EU Member States apply this formula in a harmonised way allowing for more legal and planning security, and a level playing field within the Waste-to-Energy (WtE) sector across Europe. The R1 formula provides legal clarity on when a WtE plant can be considered as an Energy Recovery operation rather than a disposal operation. This puts efficient WtE plants higher up the waste hierarchy than landfilling (disposal operation) - which is of utmost importance in order to divert waste from landfills:

The implementation of the Waste Framework Directive at local and regional level - International Conference
26-27 October 2011 Genoa, Italy

The Association of Cities and Regions for Recycling and sustainable Resource management (ACR+) organises the international conference devoted to the implementation of the Framework Directive (98/2008) at the local and regional level in Europe. The subjects to be discussed at the event: 3 years after its adoption - the progress made with the implementation of the Waste Framework Directive; Legal obligations and implementation at local level; Exchange of experiences concerning waste prevention; How to measure recycling performances at local and regional level?; How to build a Euro-Mediterranean network of local and regional authorities on waste management policies and capacity building?

Recycling Technology - specialising in materials of the future
Munich–State-of-the-art processing technologies will become increasingly important in tomorrow’s world. This fact is especially relevant to the recycling and waste disposal industries. For this reason, trade magazine Recycling Technology, published by HUSS-VERLAG GmbH since April 2009, has focused its reporting primarily on technological topics until now. But as the significance of technology in the recycling and waste disposal industries is inseparable from the various types of input material and special processes, Recycling Technology will be increasing its degree of specialisation as from 2012. A survey of readers has shown that there are three types of material for which share of the total waste stream will continue to grow in years to come: metals; plastics; and waste electrical and electronic equipment (e-waste). Recycling Technology will be focusing on these three material streams. “This will enable us to provide the recycling and waste disposal companies handling these materials with all the information and background news they need, both for their everyday work and when making investments in new machinery, systems and equipment,” underlines Andreas Schleinkofer, Chief Editor of Recycling Technology.

Given that the readership of Recycling Technology includes not only specialised recycling companies but also a great many mainstream industrial producers, topics relating to the processing of production wastes will continue to be a regular feature of this trade magazine. Furthermore, Recycling Technology will continue to report on the changing world of transportation technology, dealing with the vehicles used to collect waste from consumers.

Novel method of vulnerability assessment of simple landfills area using the multimedia, multipathway and multireceptor risk assessment (3MRA) model, China

Vulnerability assessment of simple landfills was conducted using the multimedia, multipathway and multireceptor risk assessment (3MRA) model for the first time in China. The minimum safe threshold of six contaminants (benzene, arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)], divalent mercury [Hg(II)] and divalent nickel [Ni(II)]) in landfill and waste pile models were calculated by the 3MRA model...

Multi-criteria decision making to support waste management: A critical review of current practices and methods

Solid waste management is a complex domain involving the interaction of several dimensions; thus, its analysis and control impose continuous challenges for decision makers.
