1st International Symposium MBT
Conference- Exhibition – Site visits
23th - 24th of November 2005
Mechanical-biological waste treatment (MBT)
Mechanical-biological waste treatment (MBT) is an efficient and comparatively cheap way to recycle parts of the residual waste and to reduce organic input into landfill. In Germany more than 50 MBT plants with an annual treatment capacity of more than 5,600,000 t per year will be in operation 2005. In Austria and Italy MBT is a wide spread technique too and many other European countries already have several MBT plants.
To connect the knowledge in the different countries and create an information pool for persons and organisations which are interested in MBT, Wasteconsult international organised an international, bilingual (English, German) MBT-conference with simultaneous translation.
One of the conference days included an excursion to MBT-plants. The conference was accompanied by an exhibition.

In Austria and Italy MBT is also a wide spread technique and it is going to become a very important waste management option in many other countries. In a time of strongly increasing demand for material resources, extraction of recyclable materials from waste is becoming more and more important.
