Partnership for recycling and recovery of shredder waste

shredderaffald 1170-400

The Innovation Partnership for Shredder Waste was established in September 2011 and attended by approx. 20 different stakeholders, including companies, knowledge institutions and authorities.

The Partnership aims to create a new platform for strategic cooperation on recycling and recovery of resources from shredder waste. Initially, the partnership has special focus on two activities:

• Preparation of the basis for developing regulations to establish requirements for handling and treatment of shredder waste that can help to ensure recycling and recovery of potential resources in the waste
• Development of technology, here including identification of needs for technology development in light of future regulatory requirements and new market opportunities.

The Partnership is established under the Ministry of the Environment's Waste Strategy '10 and implementation of the Government Environmental Technology Action Plan (2010-2011), "Environmental technology – improvement of environment and growth."

Steering committee
The steering committee for the partnership consists of representatives from the Danish Environmental Protection Agency, Confederation of Danish Industry, Technical University of Denmark, Waste Denmark, Reno Djurs, Force Technology and DHI.

Environmental technologies

Any technology, that either directly or indirectly improves the environment. It includes technologies for limiting pollution with the held of cleaning, more environmentally friendly products and production processes, more efficient energy and ressource management as well as technological systems that reduce the environmental impact.

Examples include e.g. technology flue gas cleaning, wind turbines, water treatment, enzymes for animal feed and washing powder, biofuel production, energy-efficient pumps and substitution of chemicals with more environmentally friendly solutions.
