WASTEMAN - Integrated Sustainable Waste Management Systems decreasing pollution discharges in the South Baltic area

Project description

The project addresses the needed change of the Municipal Solid Waste Management (MSWM) sector in the South Baltic from liner o circular system. The main objective of the project is to implement Integrated Sustainable Waste Management (ISWM) systems that will decrease the pollution from the waste management sector and at the same time ensure the effective recycling of municipal waste resources. The project implements ISWM systems in the MSWM sector through three main outputs that address the three basic objectives of the ISWM system:
A) Working together with multiple stakeholders,
B) Building a stable service value chain
C) Enabling sustainable value aspects.
The first output is a Design Manual for co-design of ISWM systems which supports the building of design strategies in cooperation with the municipal stakeholders of the South Baltic area. The second output is a comprehensive package of innovative User Applications for integrated, sustainable recycling of municipal waste fractions. The User Applications represents user oriented innovative solutions, integrating the value chain of collection, treatment and utilization of waste resources. The third output is a Management Toolbox which comprises management guidelines and casestories, which represents a framework for implemetation and dissemination of the ISWM model. The complete ISWM systems will be produced in a cross border cooperation ensuring a circular change in the South Baltic area. The technology and management system exchange provides added value from the partners through the cross-border cooperation.
