About the project
As a member of the EU, Slovakia is obliged to apply European regulations in its laws. One of these regulations is the European Landfill Directive. It imposed obligations on member states in the area of landfilling. They mainly regulate the management of mixed municipal waste, which is generated by residents of municipalities as a mixture of waste that is not suitable for further use (recycling). The contents of the black bins are, until now, regularly taken to landfill for disposal. Slovakia has fulfilled its obligation to the EU and has made it compulsory for producers of mixed municipal waste to treat this waste before disposal in landfill. Therefore 40 Slovak municipalities are looking for a technology for the mechanical-biological treatment of waste. The treatment of municipal mixed waste will reduce the rate of landfilling and further increase the use of separated waste as a resource for further recovery. We would be happy to create partnership and change experiences.
