TANA's speakers in the Lisbon waste management seminar gave new insights and best practices directly from the field how to meet the strict recycling and recovery targets set by the EU in the directive 2008/98/EC. For example, the seminar addressed the question how to fulfil the EU 2020 target for material recycling of municipal solid waste (MSW) that is set to 50%, and for construction and demolition waste where the target is 70%. Three speakers from TANA gave concrete examples how waste turns into value and the targets are met. This is possible with operational excellence and by being able to profitably shred and screen waste into reusable materials.
TANA has been actively doing research and development in the circular economy and has developed new innovative solutions for materials recovery and recycling. In order to enable efficient recycling and material recovery, waste must first be processed. Therefore, TANA has both developed and acquired technologies for efficient, multi-use shredding and screening machinery especially suitable for waste processing. In addition to machinery, TANA is considering and developing ways to connect both the users of waste-based materials with the producers of such materials.
The Waste management seminar Efficiency in resource usage took place March 7th, 2017 at the LNEC - Laboratório Nacional de Engenharia Civil (National Laboratory for Civil Engineering) in Lisbon, Portugal.
