1. News from the President

Dear Friends, Colleagues and ISWA Members,

With electronic communications, no-one has real holidays anymore! I suppose, it makes returning to the office easier, but oh for those days, as in the 1980s, when being on holiday meant being totally out of contact with the real world.

This summer, during my holiday in Sardinia, Italy, I reflected upon several questions.

For one, I thought about the China Green Fence policy. ISWA gave its views in an interview with The Guardian newspaper in the UK, reflecting upon the need to raise quality standards of source separate collection schemes to ensure a real market for recovery. The Green Fence policy, which rejects sub-standard materials (without an apparently clear definition of what these are), is good for China and good for recycling, but will require urgent adjustment. In the short term, some players will suffer. The question is: will Europe, Japan and the USA, the main exporters to China of secondary raw materials, raise their levels to ensure a long term export market? And what will happen to the lower quality materials? Does this mean more incineration? And is the Chinese market sustainable long-term once the Chinese start their own high quality collection schemes? The uncertainty this new policy creates is bound to be a major issue during ISWA’s Chinese National Member CAUES annual conference in September – that’s just one good reason to be there.

Best wishes
David Newman
President, ISWA

3. ISWA/WMAA Landfill & Transfer Stations Conference

Landfills are the predominant waste management option and are viewed in Australia as an essential infrastructure for now and into the future.

From the 7-9 August 2013, around 400 participants – mostly representing either industry or local government – gathered on the sunny Gold Coast of Australia for a full programme of site visits, trade exhibition and engaging presentations on Landfills

and Transfer stations. The event was hosted by the Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA) with the support of ISWA.

A major theme of the Conference was the contentious carbon tax, which is currently placed on industry in Australia responsible for emitting GHGs, including landfills that emit 25,000 tonnes or more of CO2 per year. To encourage methane abatement and also as a means to offset part of the high costs imposed by carbon tax, operators can to some extent gain revenue by registering projects that according to strict methodologies and protocols can prove methane abatement through landfill gas capture known as the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI). The challenges and experiences dealing with this new CFI were openly and frankly shared amongst speakers and participants.

Other interesting themes of the Conference were the experience of Landfill and Transfer Station Operators dealing with extreme weather events; and new innovations in design and operations. Two of the three Key Note speeches were given by the ISWA representatives, Derek Greedy Chair of WG on Landfill and Luis Marinheiro, WG on Landfill.

4. 2nd ISWA Summer School

2nd ISWA Summer School, 12-23 August 2013 in cooperation with the University of Malaya – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Solid Waste Management in countries with developing economies: Landfill

The second ISWA Summer School just ended in the vibrant city of Kuala Lumpur. Distinguished academics and practitioners from the region introduced 25 participants from 14 countries to everything there is to know about landfilling in developing economies

with a tropical climate. The participants were a lively mix of students and practitioners from countries from the Asian and African region, who learnt as much from each other as from the lecturers.

The programme gave an overall introduction on all stages of the lifecycle of landfills – from landfill siting, design and construction to operation, leachate treatment to closure, post-closure and monitoring. In addition, the emphasis was on handling and transformation of (open) dumps to sanitary landfills. The social and environmental impact of landfilling was covered too by lectures on the informal sector and landfill gas.

The Summer School, however, was not only work. It was also play. Participants made a day trip to the historic city of Malacca situated at the beautiful Strait of Malacca infamous for its piracy. But none succumbed to the charms of a lawless life at sea and all returned safely to the tranquil campus of the University of Malaya.

We are excited about what the 3rd ISWA Summer School holds in store, and will keep you posted about new developments.

5. Two fully booked ISWA Study Tours on Waste-to-Energy
The two fully booked ISWA Study Tours on Waste-to-Energy (June 24 to 28 and July 1 to 5) took participants to Austria, Italy and Germany, have been a great success and received very good feedback.
The 48 participants from all over the world — Australia, Africa, Asia, Central America and Europe — got an in-depth impression of 8 different state-of-the-art WtE facilities and learned about the most remarkable technologies and installations for WtE based on BAT, Best Available Techniques, in Europe.

With participants from South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria and Egypt we had prominent representation from the African region which built ISWA’s confidence to be more present there in the future.

6. Recycling in South East Europe
The ISWA funded project Opportunities & Barriers of Recycling in Balkan Countries; The Cases of Greece and Serbia conducted by the ISWA National Members HSWMA and SeSWA, has recently been completed, resulting in two well attended workshops and the development of a comprehensive report.

The report focuses on the following areas:

  • Analysis of Policies and Legal Framework
  • Performance targets and current results in recycling
  • Identification of the relative recycling markets and stakeholders
  • Challenges, Problems, Gaps and Barriers of Recycling in the countries
  • Opportunities and Recommendations
  • Successful applications and case studies

The study reveals that despite some improvements in the past years, there is room for both countries to improve their recycling efforts, particularly Serbia. The latest results of recycling systems in Greece (particularly the 9 largest schemes), demonstrate that targets have been achieved for most material streams regulated under EPR policies. Serbia, however, achieves only low levels of recycling for a number of reasons, including a lack of an organised separate collection system.

It is hoped that the entities responsible for waste management are able to take advantage of the opportunities presented in the study and overcome the identified barriers, resulting in a markedly improved recycling situation in this part of the world.

The full report is available in the ISWA Knowledge Base and can be accessed by the following hyperlink: OPPORTUNITIES & BARRIERS OF RECYCLING IN BALKAN COUNTRIES: THE CASES OF GREECE AND SERBIA

7. Global Waste Outlook

ISWA and UNEP, in consultation with the world’s leading institutions and experts in waste management, plan to establish for the first time a Global Waste Outlook.

The Global Waste Outlook will provide an authoritative overview and analysis of policy instruments; the

business case for investing in waste technologies, and recommendations for action. The Outlook will not only complement and build on already existing publications, but will offer something above and beyond.

This unique and exciting project has been given the mandate by the UN Governing Council and has been set in motion by the first consultation meeting held on the 8 & 9 July at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. In addition to representatives from ISWA and UNEP, among those present were high level representatives from the USA, Austria, Japan and Singapore Governments; the European Commission; OECD; a number of NGOs, private sector players such as Remondis, Veolia and Hitachi; and several reputable academics.

The report will draw on global experiences that not only illustrate the challenges, but also the positive attributes that waste management has to play in creating a circular economy; food security; access to scarce materials; resource efficiency; climate changes, energy; job creation and green growth etc. This will be no easy task, so ISWA and UNEP will be consulting widely with governments and leading experts and institutions involved in waste management to draw out the most critical aspects.

9. Copenhagen wins ISWA Communication Award 2013

This year, we had another record number of entries for the ISWA Communication Award. The judging panel had a difficult task and a lot of work in evaluating the 48 nominations received from 27 different countries. In the end, the members of the jury came to a clear decision.

The overall winner of the award is the communications campaign “Recycling is Gold” run by The Technical and Environmental Administration in Copenhagen from Denmark.

The jury deemed this campaign the best project due to its strengths on all fundamental elements that make communication and social marketing plans effective. The judging panel was particularly impressed by the quality of planning in which a clear strategy with detailed and measurable goals was outlined.

“3D Ecobus” by ECOPACK, Bulgaria, won second place; and Spain provided our third winner with Empresa Municipal de Servicios de Medioambiente Urbano de Gijon’s ambitious initiative “Gijon green is the way we like it. Citizen Environmental Awareness Campaign”.

Congratulations to the winners, and a big thank you for their efforts to the members of the judging panel: Ms Moira O'Brien-Malone, Ms Ulli Volk, Mr Helmut Stadler and Mr Marcel Hoenderdos.

The award presentation ceremony will take place on 7 October at this year’s ISWA World Congress in Vienna, Austria.

10. And the ISWA Publications Award 2013 goes to ...

The ISWA Publication Award has been designed to honour a publication, article or book, which is deemed to be exceptional in its contribution to the field of Solid Waste Management.

There were 10 nominations for the ISWA Publication Award 2013, and the judges found great difficulty in determining an overall winner due to the top-class level and wide variety of subject matter covered by these submissions. A clear winner emerged, however, when the panel was forced to make its overall choice. The winner is:

"An analytical framework and tool (‘InteRa’) for integrating the informal recycling  sector in waste and resource management systems in developing countries” by Costas Velis et al, published in WM&R, 30(9) Supplement, pages 43-66, Sept. 2012.

Congratulations to the winners!

The panel believed that this paper addressed an important area of waste management in developing countries, that is, the informal recycling sector; and that it offered a practical framework for designing successful initiatives to integrate the informal sector into formal waste management systems.

A big thank you for their efforts goes to the members of the judging panel: Mr Antonis Mavropoulos, Mr Goran Vujic and Mr Rodrigo Navia.

The award presentation ceremony will take place on 7 October at this year’s ISWA World Congress in Vienna, Austria.

12. New ISWA Platinum Member: EXPRA

ISWA is happy to welcome and present a new Platinum Member!

EXPRA (Extended Producers Responsibility Alliance), founded in 2013, is the umbrella organisation for packaging and packaging waste recovery and recycling systems, which are owned by obliged industry and work

on a not-for-profit basis. EXPRA acts as the authoritative voice and common policy platform representing the interests of all its member packaging recovery and recycling organisations founded and run by or on behalf of obliged industry.

These national recovery organisations are pursuing similar goals, essentially finding themselves and their stakeholders in a similar situation. They have set themselves the task of relieving industrial companies and commercial enterprises of their individual obligation to take back used sales packaging through the operation of a scheme which fulfills these obligations on a nation-wide basis on behalf of their member companies.

The aim is to ensure the recovery and recycling of packaging waste in the most economically efficient and ecologically sound manner. The members of EXPRA wish to demonstrate that the recycling of used packaging is an important step on the path towards the sustainable development that is necessary to safeguard our planet for future generations.

18. EUROPE: European EfW market soon to 'peak' as UK reaches saturation point

The waste-to-energy market is slowing down according to new research, which suggests that the commissioning of new capacity will decrease in the UK and across Europe from 2015 onwards.

A study from ecoprog GmbH reveals that the UK in particular will be hit hardest as the market becomes saturated. Britain is currently the main stimulus of growth in Europe and compensated the industry when the development of incineration capacities in countries such as Germany and the Netherlands had stopped.

After 2015, however, demand from the UK is expected to slow down. The sector is already showing signs of financial woe - a recent review from Eunomia found that consented energy-from-waste plants are struggling to get finance, with the UK sitting on 21.3m tonnes of residual waste processing capacity that has not yet commenced construction.

19. EUROPE: Europe’s electronic waste has become Africa’s burden
The disposal of computers and other electronic and electrical goods, e-waste, is a growing global problem. In 2011, the world threw away 41.5m tonnes of electrical equipment, and this is expected to rise to 93.5m tonnes by 2016. This is a concern because dumped electronic consumer goods are, essentially, toxic waste. Old-style televisions and CRT monitors contain lead and phosphorous pentachloride, printed circuit boards contain arsenic, cadmium, mercury and bromides, and fridges contain CFCs.

Buried in landfill, broken up improperly or burnt, these toxins can be exposed to the air or leach out into the soil and into the water table, and this has caused a healthcare crisis.

20. AUSTRALIA: CEFC puts $75m into waste energy generation

Australia's Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) has invested $75 million in new projects generating energy from waste coal mine gas and landfill gas as well as remote hybrid renewables projects.

The investment in Energy Developments Limited (EDL), an international energy provider based in Queensland will help develop systems to capture waste coalmine gas and landfill gas and turn it into electricity.

CEFC-Oliver-Yates-CEOCEFC CEO Oliver Yates said that CEFC finance for this facility to enable EDL's waste-to-energy projects was an important demonstration of CEFC's unique role and of the way it was positively impacting across diverse economic sectors.

The CEFC has a $10 billion fund provided by the Australian government's clean energy legislation to invest in clean energy projects.

21. AUSTRALIA: Green coffee shops cut rubbish, but at what cost?

Perched atop a high shelf at Silo Cafe in Melbourne, Australia, a five-litre jar holds an entire year of the sustainable coffee shop's waste - stickers from fruit, plastic caps, and mustard seed bag.

That's little more than two large soft drink bottles worth of rubbish, even though the cafe has served thousands of cups of coffee and hundreds of lunch-time meals per month.

(...) The main attraction, which draws school groups and curious patrons, is a 360kg (394lb) waste dehydration machine that churns 100kg (220lb) of rubbish into compost every day. Bakker gives the compost to the local growers who sell the cafe its fruit and vegetables.

22. NEW ZEALAND: Councils getting picky about what they recycle

In far North (New Zealand), they are getting picky about what they will recycle.

The council has stopped accepting plastics numbered from three to seven.

It's because China has imposed restrictions on the waste materials that it will buy for recycling, which Richard Edmondson from the Far North District Council says is affecting what can be collected.

"They don't want any dirty plastics or plastics that can't be recycled," Mr Edmondson says.

It's called the green fence policy. Large amounts of rubbish were arriving in China inside what were supposed to be shipments of recyclable plastic.

Recycler Simon Millichamp says the waste had often slipped through large, mechanised sorting systems.

"You can't blame them. I mean the sort of stuff the world has been sending to them is rubbish rather than a resource," Mr Millichamp says.

23. SCOTLAND: Whisky distillery slashes carbon costs with novel AD solution

A Scottish whisky distillery has reduced its CO2 emissions by around 9,000 tonnes per year through integrating anaerobic digestion (AD) into its production process.

North British Distillery, based in Edinburgh, turned to AD to help solve a bottleneck in the back-end of its manufacturing operations.

Instead of investing in additional evaporation capacity to process the liquid by-products from the distilling process, which would have been energy intensive, the company invested £6m in a by-products plant to produce distillers dark grain pellets for animal feed.

This incorporates AD technology utilising an external circulation sludge bed from HydroThane to process a third of the post distillation liquor.

24. UK: Changes to Company Act, incorporating new narrative and mandatory carbon reporting, are now law

The Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) has introduced new regulations for all listed Companies on the London Stock Exchange that come into force on 1 October 2013.

The proposed changes to narrative reporting, including the creation of mandatory global Greenhouse Gas footprints, have passed into law.

This news means that affected Companies need to comply with the provisions of this new regulation from 1 October, 2013.

Market research by Cambium indicates that many of the affected companies are not yet ready to comply with this legislation and will need help and assistance to comply and reduce emissions.

25. TED Talks - Two young scientists break down plastics with bacteria

After a visit to a plastic-filled waste transfer station last year, students Miranda Wang and Jeanny Yao learned that much of the plastic in trash may not degrade for 5,000 years. Synthesized into plastics are phthalates, compounds that make shower curtain liners, food wraps and other products bendable but may also adversely impact human reproductive development and health. As plastics slowly break down, these phthalates would leach into the surrounding environment.

So, the two young scientists tackled the problem and ultimately discovered strains of bacteria that have the potential to naturally degrade phthalates. Their work earned a regional first place in British Columbia for the 2012 Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada, as well as a special award for the most commercial potential at the contest's finals.
