Mixed Waste Technologies and Innovations


Broadly termed Alternative Waste Technology (AWT), technologies for processing mixed waste generally concentrate on separating and treating the organic (often the food) fraction. With recyclables and green waste commonly removed from the domestic waste stream, the largest remaining proportion is food waste. Concerns about greenhouse gas emissions and the rising costs of building and operating modern landfills, has pushed the development of AWT facilities which can process waste streams with high levels of putrescible content.
