The AMB is participating the “WaystUp!” project, recently ratified by the European Commission. This project has the clear objective of undertaking research into innovative municipal waste recovery systems, in other words, new ways of transforming waste into resources.
As an authority with great prestige in Europe that is committed to achieving waste reduction and environmental enhancement objectives, the AMB is participating in numerous worldwide initiatives, such as the Life Methamorphosis project, devoted to generating biogas at metropolitan plants for use in vehicles. Thanks to these efforts, the AMB is now testing new processes at its proprietary facilities and “WaystUp!” is a case in point. By providing the raw materials for innovation, the AMB has put itself amongst the leading public authorities with respect to the basic concepts of sustainable waste treatment: reduction, reuse and recycling.
The “WaystUp!” project has a total budget at European level of €11,952,090 (80% of which is funded by the European Commission). The project will last three and half years and the consortium is made up of 27 entities from 10 Member States: Austria, Belgium, Spain, Finland, the United Kingdom, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Czech Republic and Serbia.
