Many developing and emerging countries are facing the challenge of improving their inefficient waste management systems. At the same time, waste in industrialised countries is increasingly being used to produce both materials and energy. If recycling is executed properly, it can save more greenhouses gases than it generates.

The following pages provide information on German providers of products and services in the various technology areas:

Planning and implementation of returnable systems
Planning and implementation of waste prevention consulting
Landfill gas capture
Waste sorting plants
Waste segregation concepts
Low-emission waste incineration
Composting and biogas plants
Planning of regional recycling concepts
Implementation of specific approaches to recycling, e.g. for electric waste and waste oil

Agriculture is a major emitter of greenhouse gases, but concurrently offers great potential to mitigate climate change. Climate-friendly agricultural technologies focus on increasing the carbon content in soil, minimizing the need for chemical fertilizers which are responsible for nitrous oxide emission, and managing livestock farming and breeding in order to reduce methane emissions. This includes conservation agriculture, agroecology and organic farming. Conserving and restoring forests and grasslands is another crucial factor.
