Study on the Suitability of the Different Waste-Derived Fuels for End-of-Waste Status in Accordance with Article 6 of the Waste Framework Directive - Second Interim Report

The objective of this study is to provide detailed information and analyses to the European Commission on all the relevant aspects needed for proposing the end-of-waste status of fuels derived from waste. It analyses the suitability of different waste-derived fuels (WDFs) for obtaining the end-of-waste status in accordance with the requirements set out in Article 6 (1) of the Waste Framework Directive.

In this study, the term “waste-derived fuels” is understood in a wide and comprehensive sense, so as to include any type of fuel, be it solid, liquid or gas, which is obtained from waste. The following gaseous, liquid and solid waste derived fuels (except those excluded from the scope of the WFD 2008/98/EC) are investigated in this study:
  • Biogas,
  • Gaseous output from gasification,
  • Gaseous output from pyrolysis,
  • Biodiesel,
  • Bioethanol,
  • Waste oil (mineral and synthetic),
  • Waste oil (vegetable oils, cooking oils),
  • Waste solvents (halogenated and non-halogenated),
  • Industrial liquid waste concentrates,
  • Liquid pyrolysis output,
  • Wood waste,
  • Waste tyres and waste rubber,
  • Waste plastics,
  • Waste paper,
  • Waste textiles,
  • Biowaste (as defined in Directive 2008/98/EC),
  • RDF (WDF derived from non-hazardous waste),
  • Animal by-products and derived products,
  • Dried/dewatered municipal sewage sludge,
  • Dried/dewatered industrial sewage sludge,
  • Solid pyrolysis output.

National Waste Policy in Brazil: its repercussion after 4 years
© Wasteconsult international (5/2015)
After 20 years, in 2010, was published the national waste policy that was based on principles found in Europe and Germany, as well as the hierarchy of procedures concerning sustainable solution for the problems associated with the waste management, focusing the resources preservation and climate protection. After 4 years publication we can observe a slowly movement, slowly doesn’t mean small when we consider the giant waste market that Brazil represents, expecting for 2016 around 15 billion euros turn over in waste management where 80 % is done by private sector. Although the good news, Brazil still have 42 % of waste final disposal being done at wild landfill and their remediation represents also an interesting market. To change traditional practices we Need to open a multidisciplinary discussion integrating multiple market segments to enable the design of tools for the implementation of sustainable management of municipal solid waste.

Muss die Abfallhierarchie entsorgt werden?
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2014)
Mit der Richtlinie 98/2008/EG wurde in Europe eine Prioritätenfolge, die so genannte Abfallhierarchie, für Maßnahmen in Bereich der Abfallwirtschaft festgelegt. Diese fünfstufige Reihung bietet auf den ersten Blick eine einfache und rasche Entscheidungshilfe, welche Behandlungsarten für Abfälle zu bevorzugen bzw. zu vermeiden sind. In der Praxis zeigt sich jedoch, dass die in der Abfallhierarchie bevorzugen Optionen, Vermeidung und Wiederverwendung, zu wenig zur Anwendung kommen und die Abfallmenge weiterhin ansteigt.

Abfallwirtschaft 2030 – vier Szenarien und ihre Nutzung
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2012)
Nachhaltiges Wirtschaften bedarf langfristiger Strategien. Auch die Entwicklung der Abfallwirtschaft ist von vielfältigen Trends bestimmt: Wachsender Ressourcenverbrauch, Klimawandel oder die wirtschaftliche Entwicklung in Schwellenländern sind nur einige davon. Wie sich diese Trends in ihrer Gesamtheit in Zukunft entwickeln könnten, ist wesentlich für die langfristige Ausrichtung der Abfallwirtschaftspolitik, aber auch für eine strategische Planung in der von Abfallfragen betroffenen Wirtschaft. Strategischen Entscheidungen liegen aber häufig persönliche Präferenzen und ein verengter Blick auf Tagesthemen zugrunde. Eine gute Basis für eine langfristige Planung kann daher nur durch systematisches und methodisch fundiertes Vorgehen geschaffen werden.

Optimisation of the aerobic maturation process of the MSW digestate on Montpellier ametyst plant
© European Compost Network ECN e.V. (6/2012)
Due to an increasing environmental pressure affecting regulation of waste treatment in developed countries, new solutions of collection, specific treatment and recycling of organic waste appear in many countries in order to lower the quantities of organic waste that directly sent towards land filling or incineration. The growing scarcity and increasing price of fossil energy leads towards the more and more systematic integration of an anaerobic digestion stage in the biological treatment of bio waste or mixed waste.

Life cycle assessment as a decision tool in local waste management? A french case study
© European Compost Network ECN e.V. (6/2012)
It is now a bit more than a decade that LCA is being used as a decision making tool in waste management, in France and other European countries. Among the different tools available for environmental assessment, LCA is expected to fit particularly well the demand for global and exhaustive environmental evaluation of waste management scenarios. While specialised waste LCA tools already exist on the market, the adequate adaptation of the methodology to this particular field is still under discussion. Further Authors: K.
