The problem of the waste management is affecting all European countries with an ever increasing intensity. The EU is continuously putting forward a series of Directives in order to address this problem. In order to support these efforts, the JRC has set-up and is currently operating at Ispra, Italy a European reference laboratory on Waste Industry emissions (WIND). The WIND project is planned to gove technical/scientific support in the preparation and verification of new EU Directives on waste incineration. A brief description of the plant and its objectives is presented along with the first experiments performed in 1999.
