New Eurostat data on Municipal Waste Treatment in the EU
New Eurostat data shows how recycling and waste-to-energy grow hand-in-hand when it comes to Municipal Waste Treatment in the EU.
A comparison between Eurostat data between 2010 and 2018 clearly shows that recycling and WasteToEnergy are growing hand-in-hand in the EU. Moreover, the analysis of the figures reveals that countries performing well with recycling prefer to send their non-recyclable waste to waste-to-energy.
Unfortunately, almost half of the EU member states still send to landfills more than 40% of their municipal waste. It’s important to stress that methane emissions by landfills are 86 times more potent than CO2 over a 20-year period!
