ESWET is a European association representing manufacturers in the field of Waste-to-Energy Technology. The main purpose of ESWET is to foster the development and the dissemination of the Waste-to-Energy Technology, also called Energy-from-Waste. ESWET also seeks to raise the awareness of the positive implications of the technology in terms of better waste management, energy and for the environment.
ESWET Members' technology is part of a sustainable waste management chain, most commonly referred to as the waste hierarchy, introduced in the EU Waste Framework Directive. ESWET believes that Waste-to-Energy has an important role to play both on the energy recovery and on the environmental aspects of waste management.
Moreover, making a valuable contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through better waste management, ESWET believes that the Waste-to-Energy technology is a solution to multiple challenges.
