Waste incinerator projects in Poland at the midpoint

Large-scale attempts at dealing with overflowing landfills across Poland stem from EU waste treatment rules. A mere 8% of waste in Poland is processed by waste incinerators, of which a scant 6% is burnt in systems burning waste with energy recovery.
The present structure of waste management exposes Poland to the risk of being fined for failure to comply with the provisions of Directive 2008/98/EC and other regulations. In view of the prevailing conditions, numerous cities have decided to go for a relatively immediate solution i.e. waste incinerators. There are around 450 incinerators in Europe, whereas Poland has only one municipal waste combustor (in Warsaw). Aside from reducing the volume of waste deposited in landfills, an additional advantage of incinerators is that they can generate electricity and heat which can be reused.
