Submitter: Ministry of Environment of the Czech Republic

Duration: 6/2008–12/2009


Project description: To implement the project a team of experts from the company IREAS, Institute for Structural Policy, Institute of Environmental Engineering VSB – Technical University of Ostrava and other external experts were created. Within the initial descriptive part, the legislation of the biodegradable municipal waste (BMW) management in the Czech Republic was analyzed, existing facilities used to process BMW were identified, a detailed specification of the region (Moravian-Silesian region) was carried out with respect to the biowaste management and foreign experience was evaluated. In the analytical part the summary and evaluation of pilot projects of separate biowaste collection in municipalities in the Czech Republic and abroad were carried out; the logistics of biowaste were analysed from producers to processors in the Moravian-Silesian Region; an economic analysis of the biowaste management in the Czech Republic and analysis of technologies used in the Czech Republic and abroad were carried out. In the last phase of the project layouts of the BMW management system were designed in the Moravian-Silesian region; recommendations were aggregated for other regions and a counselling center about the issue of BMW was created.


The main goal of the project was to create a proposal of the biodegradable municipal waste management system within the selected region (Moravian-Silesian region). This proposal should have indicated how to meet the targets set out in Directive 1999/31/EC on the Landfill of Waste within this region. The project outputs are formulated to become an amenable guide to use the experience also in other regions of the Czech Republic.
