The proposed project proposes a scheme that achieves almost total recycling of MSW and its non-recyclable by-product. In this way, one of the more crucial problems, actually the sustainable “disposal” of difficult side products of the entire recycling industry is achieved in a sustainable way. Taking into consideration the high biogenic fraction of these by-products (more than 65%), it is further concluded that important EC goals (such as the increased penetration of RES in Europe’s energy balance) are well served. The main results of the proposed project include:

- Energy exploitation of non-recyclable waste fraction through an effective logistics management scheme that will be implemented by EPANA with the technical assistance of CERTH/ISFTA.
- Design and implementation of a gasification unit of SRF for electricity generation. The unit is considered as renewable energy source and will be tested over a long period of time.
- Demonstration of the environmental benefits of waste energy exploitation through the quantification of CO2 emissions avoided from the exploitation of the non-recyclable fraction.
- Study of the gasification project sustainability in order to promote the proposed approach, maximise the environmental benefits, and guarantee the continuation of the scheme after the project execution.

Considering the above, the proposed concept is also expected to lead to high replication potential of this approach throughout Greece and Europe.

The main achievements from the proposed integrated approach are summarised below:

  • Reduction of the environmental impact from the energy exploitation of urban waste fraction, which nowadays remains unavailable and is deposited in a nearby land filling site.
  • Increase of public awareness on the energy exploitation of urban waste in an environmental friendly way, which is widely applied abroad, but meets serious application difficulties in Greece.
  • Development of a pilot unit aiming to set an example for further applications in different cities and municipalities
  • To increase the energy produced from RES (biomass and waste) in Greece
  • To create job opportunities from new waste treatment factories
  • To alleviate the environmental impacts of waste disposal and CO2 emissions from fossil fuels
