Belgian Waste and Recycling Solutions

Belgian Waste and Recycling Solutions

Over the years our country has successfully switched to more sustainable methods that are higher up in the waste hierarchy. Today, Belgian companies are European and international leaders in the processing of different waste streams, including municipal, industrial and packaging waste and discarded electrical and electronic appliances. They also developed a far-reaching expertise and know-how regarding the environmentally-friendly management of landfill or storage sites for waste and sustainable remediation techniques.

Historically, Belgium has always played an initiator’s role in the field of waste legislation and policy. This is no different today. Belgium takes up its pioneering role again and the regional authorities have planned a policy that gives priority to closing material cycles.

In the first part of the publication “Belgian Waste and Recycling Solutions” the Belgian waste sector is presented: the market in numbers, the European and national objectives, the assets of Belgium and the different players. The second part is devoted to 12 Belgian success stories, while the third part consists of a non-exhaustive list of companies who are active in the industry. The companies were divided into 4 categories (collection & sorting, waste-to-material, waste-to-energy and landfill solutions).
