All arising solid waste streams have to be regarded and managed as an integral part of the economic framework. Accordingly, the ultimate aim of solid waste disposal is the conservation of the environment through environmental consciousness and sustainable stewardship of our natural resources, preserving them for future generations.

In general, waste avoidance, reduction of the use of energy, and material consumption as well as the reduction of potentially hazardous emissions must be achieved in order to ease the burden on the environment. As a consequence, priority is given to waste avoidance, followed by waste recycling. Through the environmentally sound recycling as well as energy production gained through the recycling of waste material, valuable resources can be managed in a sustainable way.

Therefore, HYDROPLAN’s key activities include integrated solid waste management projects starting with the development of a concept for the collection and separation, sorting, composting, mechanical and biological treatment, and ending with the incineration and disposal in landfills. In addition, HYDROPLAN assists Ministries and other clients in assessing waste management tariffs required for a full cost recovery or socially acceptable integrated concepts.
