Germany has best waste facilities in the world

A new survey shows that Germany has some of the most reliable waste treatment facilities in the world. Juniper, a specialist waste consultancy, carried out the survey, taking a comparative look at technologies for processing waste from more than 25 countries around the world. The company assigned ratings to each waste technology supplier based on their resources, expertise and track record. On this basis Germany was given the highest star rating of 5, compared to the UKs 4 rating. Director Anne Sutcliffe said: Many German processes came out with high ratings against our criteria because these processes are more proven and robust and their systems have been proven through a wide range of reference projects over many years. In comparison, in the UK a lot of the processes have yet to prove themselves. According to Juniper, the waste technologies in countries like the USA, UK and Canada have much more of a limited record because they tend to use more modern waste solutions, such as anaerobic digestion which have yet to be fully proven as practical and robust solutions. Whereas, Germanys dominance in the list illustrates the nature of it supplying proven technologies with a long track record, such as thermal technologies. In publishing the new analysis, Juniper hope to provide an objective independent assessment for project developers struggling to select technology solutions that are practical.
