Industrial demand analysis

The overcoming of non technical barriers is a major step forwards in applying any technology. Non technical barriers exist such as perception of odour, noise, pollution generation, public opinion, aesthetics, legal drivers and emission regulations.

Assessments have been made of member states in the first instance, followed by EEA states, to assess the legislative positions and general perception of thermal technology applications within each country. As opinions vary widely across the EU this as helped to establish the location of the key centres that should be targeted for implementation.

The results of this study have been matched with the technical database information, to ensure that the non technical barries have not only been identified, but that the technical means to overcome them are in place.

Part of carrying out these assessments has been to travel to meet representatives of leather industry / waste regulators / legislative enforcement agencies in EU Member States and some EU Associated States such as Slovakia and Norway.
