Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) is a waste treatment concept that has grown into a dynamic industry on mainland Europe since the 1980s. It evolved from a need in the face of changing legislative requirements to develop a method for treating residual municipal solid waste (MSW)1 material, and thereby reduce the need for traditional landfill disposal.
The aims of this project were to:
Provide information in relation to MBT that may inform future government policy.
Identify issues that require addressing in order to establish conditions that are suitable to the environmental development of MBT facilities in Ireland.
Identify issues that require addressing in order to establish conditions that are suitable to the economic development of MBT facilities in Ireland.
Make recommendations where possible as to the means to address these issues.
