Waste in all its forms, whether municipal, industrial, commercial or agricultural, is one of the most flagrant factors affecting our lives and environment today. People and societies are suffering the ill effects of waste because of insufficient regulation, processes, resources and investments in waste management.
Littering of the natural habitat and oceans is threatening people’s livelihoods, which in turn causes far-reaching social issues, such as urbanization and migratory waves.
However, waste should not be regarded as a threat, but rather as an opportunity for developing more resource-savvy and recycling-oriented communities. The wasteWOIMA® power plant ensures a cleaner environment, offers job and training opportunities and generates locally available energy to support local SMEs. Waste as a resource can substitute virgin raw materials and fossil fuels thus creating a positive spiral towards more egalitarian societies.
