Mixed Waste Sorting (MWS) is gaining attention around Europe, as on-going newer operations in countries like Sweden, Norway, Poland, Belgium and the Netherlands continue to show positive results by extracting plastics, textiles and metals for recycling.

The net impact of MWS is that these valuable European resources which are part of the
waste stream get recycled rather than incinerated, buried in landfill or residuals of biological treatment.

The conference “Mixed Waste Sorting: The next frontier for managing residual waste for maximum circularity” aims to bring together regional and national governments, MWS operators, recyclers, experts, and technology providers from countries across Europe to offer their expertise on the introduction of MSW as an additional tool for the recovery and re-circulation of Europe ́s valuable resources.

The conference is a timely response to the current revision of the Waste Framework Directive, due to be proposed by the European Commission in Q2 of 2023.

The conference will take place on March 21, 2023 in Brussels from 9 AM to 4:30 PM.
