    FAST TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

    Context

    Development of biosolids/digestate standards for use in the agricultural sector will not have a direct climate impact but the use of biosolids use can lead to broader adoption of the anaerobic digestion technology. Each country has a different set of standards depending on the discharge standards of treated effluents on land, water body, sea or rivers etc. and the quality of the digestate is largely dependent on the effluent discharge standards.

  • Recycling of Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE)

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    According to the EC (19 November, 2008) “waste means any substance or object which the holder discards or intends or is required to discard.” Recycling materials and products – that are considered waste - is an ancient practice which shows that in times of resource scarcity (i.e. shortage of virgin materials) societies attach more economic and societal value to their own waste. This implies that throughout time the definition of waste can change as well. Generally speaking longer use or reuse of materials and products this is often mainly to cover a society’s needs.
