MBT in Germany and Europe – Development, Status and Outlook

The waste management in Europe has to arrange itself more and more with the guidelines of sustainable resources management and climate change targets. Therefore the material specific waste treatment by the MBT-technology, as a switch point of mass flow separation with energy-efficient treatment and utilisation of the partial streams, offers an ideal starting position. Against this background this conference paper will comment the previous development, the status and the outlook of the Mechanical-Biological-Treatment in Germany and Europe (France, Great Britain, Italy, Austria and Spain).

Waste management in Europe has to arrange itself more and more with the guidelines of sustainable resources management and climate change targets.. According to present studies waste management can contribute here by a material and energetic recovery of wastes by means of optimising treatment plants in an energy-efficient way. The definite implementation of the EU Waste Framework Directive in the Member States will lead to a change of the waste arising regarding quantity and quality and its whereabouts that is presently difficult to be assessed. The MBT must and will challenge the competition around the quantities and qualities of the material streams. The technical requirements and developing potentials for this purpose are given. The material-specific waste treatment with plants operating with MBT technology as switch point mass flow separation with energy-efficient treatment and utilisation of the partial streams offers not only in Europe a good starting position. The technical design of the MBT technology can be adjusted flexibly to the individual requirements and frame conditions.
Before this background the paper explains the latest development, the status and outlooks of the mechanical-biological waste treatment in Germany and Europe (France, Great Britain, Italy, Austria and Spain).

In spite of the fact that the EU has set up a waste hierarchy and issued key pieces of waste management directives, and ratified by all EU member states, compliance with diversion targets away from landfilling are still considered too ambitious and are far out of the reach of many EU countries. This is especially true for the southern European and Eastern European Member States, who are looking for viable economic and robust technologies that be rapidly implemented assisting them to fulfil EU targets within the desired timeframes.

The article demonstrated a solid background and a great performance in affordable waste treatment technology. Achieving the strict stabilization criteria’s with the technology invarious countries, the know-how of the partner and fit for use GORE Cover made its way from the early days. At the given experience, not only in Germany, a cost effective and sustainable approach by choosing treatment technologies is key in the future MSW treatment to our point of view. However, even if a fully encapsulated plant is desired to what ever reason – reference plants even on this specific request are available.

Flexible management for separate treatment of organic and residual waste in one plant at the waste management centre Rhein-Lahn
© Arbeitsgemeinschaft Stoffspezifische Abfallbehandlung ASA e.V. (9/2012)
In the waste management centre AWZ an MBT pant (Final rotting process) is operated and in addition an organic-waste-treatment plant with a biological drying of the oversize grains for the energy recovery in external biomass power plants. Both technologies are operated almost similarly. At the current optimization of the exhaust air situation, the main focus is on flexible adaptability with respect to future changes. The quantities of the residual- and organic waste could be changed in the future by waste management measures and modified regional partnerships. Currently, experiments are made with the aim to investigate, whether a modification of the MBT from composting-process to a purely biological drying process of the mid-calorific fraction is possible and economically useful. Through the reduction of the duration in the intensive rot phase, a tripling of the throughput is conceivable. The energy efficiency of the plants can be improved significantly. Furthermore, the biogenic content of the mid-calorific fraction could be used as a substitute for fossil fuels.

Stolpersteine auf dem Weg zur Realisierung einer WtE-Anlage in Polen
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (3/2010)
Das Siedlungsabfallaufkommen in Polen liegt bei annähernd 12 Millionen Tonnen pro Jahr. Nur westeuropäische Länder wie Deutschland, Großbritannien und Frankreich verfügen über ein höheres jährliches Abfallaufkommen. Jedoch ist das Abfallaufkommen pro Einwohner und Jahr deutlich niedriger als in anderen europäischen Ländern.

Mögliche Finanzierungsformen von thermischen Abfallbehandlungsanlagen in Polen

Durch den Beitritt Polens zur Europäischen Union (EU) am 01. Mai 2004 verpflichtete sich das neue Mitgliedsland mit Unterzeichnung des Beitrittsvertrages zu einem engen Zeitplan für regionale und strukturelle Umstrukturierungen. Zur Bewältigung der umfangreichen zukünftigen Aufgaben wurde von der EU schon vor dem eigentlichen Beitritt ein umfangreiches finanzielles Hilfspaket in Aussicht gestellt. Hiermit sollten die verschiedenen Bereiche der polnischen Wirtschaft gestärkt bzw. aus- und umgebaut werden.
