UFO Plan Study Amendment of the Waste Wood Ordinance
The study “Evaluation of the Waste Wood Ordinance in view of a necessary amendment” is carried out by the IWARU – Institute for Infrastructure – Water – Resources – Environment under the direction of Prof. Dr. Sabine Flamme. The project is scheduled to take 15 months from the date the contract is awarded. The final report is to be published in mid-2019.
Subject of the research project:
Within the framework of the research project, the existing waste wood ordinance will be reviewed. Where are the implementation deficits of the current regulation? Which changes due to technical and analytical progress have to be taken into account? How is the monitoring of exports and imports of scrap wood carried out and where are there deficits? From this, recommendations for action are developed. A material flow analysis of the waste wood material flows will also be prepared in order to estimate possible effects of the proposed solutions on the material flows.
