Experiences during the elaboration of Waste Management concepts for eight waste management unions in Turkey

The general purpose for the project is to prepare integrated solid waste Management projects approved by EU and ready for financing and implementation under IPA (Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance) funds in accordance with the Turkish Legislation and the EU acquis for 8 Waste management Unions in the eastern and central Turkey. The waste management Unions were established according to the Turkish law and are situated in eight different Provinces, namely Artvin, Erzurum, Mersin, Banliurfa, Diyarbakir, Hakkari, KahramanmaraC, and Ordu.

The content, experiences and outcome of the project „Technical Assistance to prepare Integrated Solid Waste Management Projects - Lot 2”, co-funded by the EU and the Republic of Turkey is presented under the main questions: "Is waste currently seen as are source in Turkey or can it in the future be seen as a resource"? and "What are the prospects for MBT in waste management in Turkey seen in the light of the project"? The general purpose of the project is to prepare integrated solid waste management Projects ready for financing and implementation under the IPA II instrument (EU's Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance). To that end, analysis of the current waste situation has been conducted in 8 regions in mainly the Eastern part of Turkey, covering approx. 2.7 million inhabitants, and investment projects elaborated. The status is that the current waste management is poor, the regions lack adequate WM facilities, the affordability islow, and no proper tariff/user payment systems are in place. These are the main obstacles for implementing MBT facilities on a larger scale and for perceiving waste as a resource in Turkey.

Der zukunftssichere Wertstoffhof – Was ist bei der Planung alles zu beachten?
© Witzenhausen-Institut für Abfall, Umwelt und Energie GmbH (5/2017)
Neue Produkte und Gesetze wie das ElektroG werden auch zukünftig dafür verantwortlich sein, dass sich Betreiber und Entwickler von Wertstoffhöfen neuen Herausforderungen zu stellen haben. Aber auch Aspekte wie Unfallprävention und die Vorbereitung zur Wiederverwendung nach dem Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz sollten in der Planung von Wertstoffhöfen berücksichtigt werden. Der Beitrag zeigt an einigen Beispielen, wie ein zukünftiger Wertstoffhof aussehen kann. Hierbei werden von planerischer Seite auf die Aspekte räumliche Trennung des Bürgerverkehrs und der Containerlogistik, Annahmestelle für EAG und Güter zur Wiederverwendung auf einem Wertstoffhof eingegangen.

Enhancing of the Energy Efficiency of an Existing Waste Incineration Plant by Retrofitting with a District Heating Network
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
The German Cycle Economy Act (Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz KrWG) and discussions on the turn of local energy policies led to intensive examination of options for optimising utilisation of heat produced by the waste incineration plant (MKW) in Weißenhorn. This has been carried out by the waste management firm(Abfallwirtschaftsbetrieb – AWB) of the district of Neu-Ulm over a long period of time. This was also prompted by knowledge that utilisation of already generated energy in the form of combined heat and power generation (CHP) is one of the most efficient ways of achieving climate protection targets. This results from considering which courses of action are available for climate protection.

Fully Automated Sorting Plant for Municipal Solid Waste in Oslo with Recovery of Metals, Plastics, Paper and Refuse Derived Fuel

In order to treat household waste Romerike Avfallsforedling (ROAF) located in Skedsmorkorset north of Oslo, Norway required the installation of a mechanical Treatment facility to process 40,000 tpa. Together with a Norwegian based technical consultancy Mepex and German based technical consultancy EUG the project was tendered and the plant build against a technical specification. In 2013 the project was awarded to Stadler Anlagenbau and since April 2014 the plant is in operation with an hourly throughput of thirty tons. The input waste contains specific green coloured bags containing food waste which is collected together with the residual waste from the households. The process recovers successfully the green food bags before the remaining waste is mechanically pre-treated and screened to isolate a polymer rich fraction which is then fully segregated via NIR technology in to target polymers prior to fully automated product baling. Recoverable Fibre is optically targeted as well as ferrous and non-ferrous metals. All food waste is transported off site for further biological treatment and the remaining residual waste leaves site for thermal recovery. In 2015 the plant has been successfully upgraded to forty tons per hour and remains fully automated including material baling.

Overview of the Waste Management Situation and Planning in Greece
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
Waste management has been recognized as one of the most pressing problems in Greece suffering of a low level of organization and relying predominantly on semi-controlled landfills until the end of the previous century [9]. Nevertheless improvements have been made during the last twenty years making the solid waste management in Greece a well-structured, organized and environmentally responsible activity with specific goals, mostly in the urban areas. However, there is a big need of changing the waste Management model. The development of efficient use of resources is the mean of realizing this vision. The transformation of the economy towards a resource-efficient direction will lead to increased competitiveness and new sources of growth and jobs through cost reduction through improved efficiency, commercialization of innovations and better management of resources throughout the duration of cycle life.

Possibilities of Development of Municipal Waste Recycling and Incineration in Poland
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
One of the basic rules in the field of waste management is the use of processes which are located as high as possible in the waste hierarchy, while taking into consideration the life cycle thinking. This also applies to municipal waste management. Waste prevention is at the top of the hierarchy. This is followed by: preparation for reuse, recycling and other recovery processes, including thermal treatment (incineration) of waste with energy recovery. The disposal of waste, which includes, among others, landfilling, is at the bottom of the hierarchy. Thus, the objective is to move up the hierarchy, which means moving away from waste disposal towards waste recovery.
