The Nature And Biodiversity Conservation Union published a study assessing the costs of renovating waste incineration plants. Thanks to a closed-loop economy these plants can be unburdened and greenhouse gas emissions can be avoided. The advantages of a closed-loop economy with regard to climate protection were discussed at a parliamentary evening in Berlin.
The use of resources is increasing worldwide, especially in the industrialised countries, and it is causing ever more severe ecological and economic problems. In order to secure the well-being of future generations, today’s production and consumption patterns must become more sustainable and resources must be used more efficiently. A closed-loop economy is one way of decoupling growth from the consumption of non-renewable raw materials. Intelligent recycling processes can also make a valuable contribution towards saving resources. In Brandenburg, there are numerous institutions and companies offering suitable solutions to these issues. You can find more information under “Innovations”. Just click on “Plastics Recycling”.
