Aid in the management and european comparison of a municipal solid waste treatment for a global and sustainable approach (AWAST)

Objective

Municipal Solid Waste management is a major problem for all the local communities of the EU. The different involved players (political, industrial, municipalities) are faced to a lack of methodologies and software to define, evaluate, optimise or adapt their waste treatment decisions and to meet the progress targets set at the EC level. The AWAST project will answer this need by providing end-users with a flexible simulation software that, in a comprehensive approach, takes into account technical, energetic and economic aspects, and also the social and environmental aspects. It will be validated on 3 European cities displaying a wide variety of practices, performance achievement and local contexts. National environmental agencies, local communities and non-governmental associations, joined together in a Steering Committee, will guarantee that the needs of the end-users will be met and that the research results will be properly disseminated.
