Experience from municipalities in the Czech Republic and abroad with biodegradable municipal waste management as a basis for the design of a new system.

In the opening descriptive part, the legislation on 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 biowaste management and foreign experience was evaluated. In the analytical part, a summary and evaluation of pilot projects of separate biowaste collection in municipalities in the Czech Republic and abroad were carried out, the biowaste logistics were analysed from producers to processors in the Moravian-Silesian Region, and an economic analysis of biowaste management in the Czech Republic and an analysis of technologies used in the Czech Republic and abroad were carried out. In the last phase of the project, layouts of a BMW management system for the Moravian-Silesian Region were designed, recommendations were aggregated for other regions and a counselling centre on BMW issues was created.

Conclusions of the project:

The main goal of the project was to create a proposal for a biodegradable municipal waste management system for a selected region (Moravian-Silesian Region). The proposal was expected to indicate how to meet the targets set out in Directive 1999/31/EC on the Landfill of Waste in the region. The project outputs are formulated to become a helpful guide for using the experience in other regions of the Czech Republic.
