ESWET - European Suppliers of Waste to Energy Technology
ESWET is the association grouping the European Suppliers of Waste-to-Energy Technology. Our main purpose is to foster the development and dissemination of Waste-to-Energy.
Waste-to-Energy (also called Energy-from-Waste) has an important role to play both on the energy recovery and on the environmental aspects of managing waste that is not suitable for recycling. Waste-to-Energy is an integral part of sustainable waste management, as reflected by its role in the Waste Hierarchy of the EU’s Waste Framework Directive, acting in complement to recycling while enabling landfilling minimisation. Making a valuable contribution to the reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions through better waste management and cleaner energy, Waste-to-Energy is a solution to multiple challenges.
