How come Germany’s waste management and recycling sector is ahead of the others? What role has the private sector played in this development? The answers to these and other questions can be found in the new book, “Solid Waste Management”.
The book looks back at the development of the German waste management sector over the last 100 years or so and takes a look ahead at the global challenges that will have to be faced in the future. This 200-page book has been published by SASE, an Iserlohn-based company whose primary objective is to share its knowledge with others.
Full of photos and images, the new book gives an interesting insight into how the industry has developed over the past decades. Subjects range from the first attempts to organise town cleaning operations all the way through to the country’s ever more complex waste management and raw material activities. A close look is taken at the period after the German Waste Law was introduced in 1972, i.e. when national regulations were in place regulating the disposal of waste. A number of subjects have grown in importance since this law came into force such as waste avoidance, waste management in general, recycling and the circular economy.
SASE has also published three books in German about urban environmental protection.
The section covering today’s waste management industry includes a number of practical examples to demonstrate what private sector companies, such as REMONDIS, have been focusing on in the 21st Century: namely to turn waste into a source of raw materials to help guarantee supplies, protect the environment and curb climate change. By the way, the foreword was written by Ludger Rethmann. It was his grandfather who laid the foundations for today’s REMONDIS Group back in 1934.
