GROWTH MARKET POLAND
Opportunities for innovative plant and process technology
Poland’s national waste management plan for 2010 sees innovative sorting and recycling technology as the cornerstones for the reorganization of the country’s waste disposal strategy. In order to achieve improvements quickly, Poland plans to invest about 2.3 billion EUR in infrastructure for waste treatment by 2013.
And in order to meet EU directives Poland has to reduce to below 60% the share of biogenic wastes from private households that are sent to landfi ll. Currently nearly 90% of municipal wastes still land on the tip.
Total waste arisings in Poland amounted to 125 million tonnes in 2008. Industrial wastes amounted to 115 million tonnes, municipal wastes to 10 million tonnes. Less than 7% of this were collected separately.
When building new plants the government is now making use of the whole spectrum of thermal, biological and mechanical treatment techniques. This opens up a lucrative market for foreign suppliers of plant and process technology.
