Waste Management

No. of Pages : 178 Pages

Generally, most people now understand that resources are becoming scarcer and that it is down to both individuals and companies to make the most of them and to also reduce the amount of waste they initially generate. However, with populations rising and the most developed global economies seeing improved activity, new technologies and processes are needed to counteract these threats to achieving lower waste arisings levels.

Market factors
The current lack of a national or EU-driven waste framework has caused uncertainty about the direction waste management should undertake
The use of new technology and increasing innovation in the industry has reduced the threat of environmental damage and helped improve the efficiency of waste recovery
The economic recovery has led to new challenges in reducing waste arisings
Waste treatment facilities are under threat from overcapacity, but exporting scrap material is helping negate this problem
