1 SWEDISH EXPORT POSSIBILITIES WHITIN CIRCULAR MATERIALS ECONOMY Thomas Nylund CEO, Gästrike återvinnare Chair of Export Working Group, Waste Management Sweden

2 The Swedish Waste Management System

3 Part 1 Sweden Avfall Sverige Swedish Waste Management

4 Avfall Sverige Swedish Waste Management An organisation in the Waste Management and Recycling Sector 400 members, primarily within the public sector, but also private enterprises Through our members, we represent 99,9 % of the Swedish population Our primary task is to represent and develop members by creating networks, providing information and training, and influencing decision-makers Member of Cewep, ECN, ISWA and Municipal Waste Europe

5 Avfall Sverige Swedish Waste Management Our members are responsible for municipal waste management provide services for other waste categories represent an important part of the infrastructure in the society We together - are aiming towards an environmentally correct and sustainable waste management, for the benefit of society

6 Part 2 Waste a Resource The Development Responsibilities Operations

7 Waste - a resource Treatment of household waste in Sweden, 2011 (%) Landfill Energy recovery Biological treatment Recycling (material)

8 Waste hierarchy

9 Unique results Recycling (material) Biological treatment Energy recovery Landfill Sweden 2010 EU 2010 USA 2010

10 The development

11 Important steps of development Household waste to landfill per year (tonnes) Producers responsibility introduced Municipal waste planning compulsory Landfill tax introduced Ban on landfill of combustible waste Ban on landfill of organic waste and national target on food waste On-going national overview 0

12 Clear division of responsibilities Municipalities: Collection and treatment of municipal waste Information to households Parliament/Government Supervisory Authorities Producers: Collection and treatment of waste within the Producers Responsibility Waste generator: Citizens/households: Separation and leave/transport waste at indicated collection points Companies/Industries: Handling of own generated waste

13 Operations Municipalities deal with their responsibility in different ways and design their own waste management organisation Administration: Almost 50% have formed municipal waste management companies Collection of municipal waste: 30% inhouse operation 70% contract to private operators Treatment of municipal waste: 35% inhouse operation 65% contract to other operators, mainly municipally owned

14 Co-operation Co-operation the solution to an increasingly complex waste management: Optimizing environmental and social benifit Handle the waste in a costeffecient way Securing competence

15 Part 3 Overview Model Infrastructure Collection Recovery and Recycling

16 Overview model Housholds or companies Waste prevention New products: Biogas, new materials, district heating, electricity, bio-fertilizer Collection and transport Recycling stations Recycling centers Curbside collection Materialrecycling Biological recycling Energy recovery Landfill

17 Public awarness - a success factor Key messages and tools for motivation and to facilitate collaboration: Communication Development of self instructive systems Feed back of the results and that what I do matters Emphasize on the waste holders responsibility and participation

18 Waste prevention in Sweden 99 % material recycling or energy recovery today more focus on waste prevention Information, knowledge and behaviour success factors Long tradition of reuse through flymarkets, second hand, collection at recycling parks, etc Largest challenge: decoupling between generated waste and economic growth Generated household waste in Sweden is predicted to double (Swedish EPA) Generated waste world wide is predicted to rise with 72 % (What a Waste-A global review of Solid Waste Management, mars 2012, World Bank Group)

19 Infrastructure Collection of waste from households based on source separation Curb side collection 630 manned drop-off recycling centers unmanned recycling drop-off stations Treatment and recycling of waste based on the charcter of the waste 58 organic waste facilities 32 waste to energy plants 79 landfills

20 Recycling centers

21 Recycling and treatment Different treatment methods depending on the character of the waste, makes it possible to use the waste as a resource Materials Food waste Combustible waste New products Biogas Biofertilizer District heating Electricity

22 Production of biogas and bio-fertilizer The most increasing treatment method Energy recovery by the production of biogas used as a vehicle-fuel Recycling of nutritions to farming-land by the production of bio-fertilizer Source separation and quality assurance key words During 2011, 322 GWh vehicle-fuel was produced from foodwaste replacing about 30 millions liters of petrol. 600,000 tonnes fertilizer is replaced with biofertilizer yearly in Sweden.

23 Generation of district heating and electricity Covers around 20 % of the total district heating in Sweden, equals the needs of homes Produces electricity corresponding to the needs of homes Advanced and secure flue gas treatment Most of the rest-products can be recycled Total energy production 2011: District heating: 13,5 TWh Electricity: 2 TWh (including industral waste)

24 Efficient and clean waste incineration

25 An integrated part of a holistic system Products Material recycling Households Sewage water cleaning Farms Biosolids Waste Anaerobic digestion Vehicle fuel Incineration Landfill Biogas Cooling/ heating production Other fuels Electricity production

26 Part 4 Waste Economy Means of Control Success Factors Vision and Long Term Goals

27 Waste economy Municipal waste: All costs covered by municipal waste fees (not by taxes) Tariffs decided by each municipal board Non-profit Allowed to be differentiated to encourage source separation for recycling Municipal waste within producers responsibility: Costs covered by a fee added to the price of every product

28 Waste fee Average yearly fee per household 2011: Houses: 240 EUR Flats: 150 EUR Average daily fee per household

29 Means of control Environmental objectives Government regulations, bans, and taxes, for example: Tax on landfilling (since 2000) Ban on landfilling of combustible waste since 2002 Ban on landfilling of organic waste since 2005 Differentiated municipal waste tariffs Municipal waste planning and regulations Information and communication

30 Important success factors Waste management is a public service Clear division of roles and responsibilities enable necessary investments Clear national environmental targets showing the direction Long-term regulations and economical steering instruments Co-operation between municipalities Co-operation within municipalites (Waste-, Energy-, Water-, Urbanplanning-, etc departements) Collaboration between public and private sectors Focus on communication and public engagement

31 Avfall Sverige s vision Zero waste! Long-term goals until 2020: Decoupling between generated waste and economic growth Strong upward movement in waste hierarchy Economic growth Generated waste BN P

32 Part 5 Waste Management on Export A new Swedish Platform

33 Aim with the new platform To facilitate the export of Swedish knowledge about waste management, products and services within the waste sector, through cooperation among municipalities, municipal companies and the private sector.

34 A strategy based on cooperation Swedish waste management - municipalities - municipal companies - private companies (technology suppliers and knowledge suppliers) One strong platform with a unique combination of competences

35 What we are doing Defining offers to form a product catalogue Making an inventory of resources matching the offers Developing business models for co-operation between municipalities and companies in order to be able to form the strongest offer Preparing a routine for canalize and asset incoming requests Taking part in pilot projects in different countries to be able to further develop our models and routines

36 Offers Questions Matching offers 1. How do we find the form/organisation to achieve what we want with our waste management system? 2. How should we form our waste management system on an overview level? 3. We are in the need of treatment capacity, but we do not have the funds or time to prioritize to build up all capacity right now Management on local, regional and cluster level: Co-operation, organization, waste economy, waste fee construction, etc Waste management in sustainable urban development: System design, waste planning, solutions for collection- and sorting systems Providing treatment capacity (incluing solutions for logistics) as a transfer solution.

37 Offers Questions 4. We know what we want to build, but we need support in setting up the plant/facility. 5. We have got a plant/ facility. But we want to improve in running and maintain it, and get the most out of it. 6. We want to reach the public, the decision makers or other stakeholders with our message. 7. We want to train our personnel. Matching offers Setting up different waste facilities: Financing possibilities, feasibility studies, procurement, construction, etc Operation, support and optimization of different waste facilities Communication and campaigns (raise awareness) Training courses overseas or in Sweden, offer internship possibilities.
