Islands have particular characteristics as regards energy supply and waste disposal that distinguish them from mainland areas. Land filling of waste is not favoured, due to land use and environmental implications and energy production costs are high. Modern waste-to-energy technologies have proven to address both issues; however their applications are still scarce on islands.
The project aims at facilitating their penetration by: providing islands with sustainable, indigenous & renewable energy supply options based on waste management practices, in line with guidelines set by EC Waste Directives; disseminating proven methods of using solid waste as an energy supply source; integrating clean and renewable energy produced from waste into the energy supply system of islands; dealing with the waste problem of islands. The main result will be a dedicated strategy for the promotion of appropriate waste-to-energy technologies in EU Islands, in line with the sustainable development principle.
