Construction of complex waste management system in Sosnowiec

 

 

Project objectives:

  • fulfilment of the assumptions included in the fundamental legal act of the European Union in the field of waste management – Directive 75/442/EEC and Directive 31/99/EU,
  • organising waste management in the city by means of implementation of a comprehensive waste management system,
  • reducing the amount of waste going to landfills,
  • including the inhabitants in the selective waste collection system,
  • improving the city inhabitants’ living conditions.

 

Quantitative (measurable) objectives:

 

  • reducing the waste mass going to landfills from 93,429 tons in 2009 to 50,839 tons after 12 months from completion of the investment; The quotient of waste-mass, which will be generated in the municipal waste processing process and will go to landfills, and of waste mass, which was sent to waste management plants after 12 months from completion of the investment, will amount to 54%,
  • reducing the amount of biodegradable waste sent to landfills. In 2008, 100% of biodegradable waste were sent to landfills. In 2013, it is anticipated that the amount of biodegradable waste sent to landfills will be reduced by 82% (the quotient of the amount of biodegradable waste subject to composting and the amount of generated biodegradable waste),
  • increasing the number of inhabitants covered by the selective collection system to 100%.

 

Material scope

 

The Project entitled “Development of a comprehensive waste management system in Sosnowiec” includes implementation of technical facilities and devices to process and utilise municipal waste in the area of Sosnowiec.

The Infrastructure and Environment Operational Programme

 

EU membership is both an opportunity and a challenge to Poland. Participation in the community cohesion policy provides an opportunity to reduce the development gap between Poland and the “old” EU Member States. Development lags concern mainly infrastructure and prevent optimum use of national resources and to a great extent block the existing potential. Overcoming the gap is the precondition of increased competitiveness and improved investment attractiveness.

 

The Infrastructure and Environment Operational Programme (IEOP) is a response to the opportunities and challenges brought about by the membership in the European Union. The Programme's objective is to improve the country's investment attractiveness. The implementation of the Programme as well as achieving the said objective require adequate preparation of the public administration and beneficiaries for the best possible use of the Programme's funds.

 

The Infrastructure and Environment Operational Programme, pursuant to the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF), approved on 7 May 2007 by the European Commission, forms one of operational programmes used as the fundamental tool of achievement its assumed objectives using funds of the Cohesion Fund and the European Regional Development Fund. A characteristic feature of the Infrastructure and Environment OP is an integral perspective on problems of the basic infrastructure which includes technical infrastructure and principal elements of the social infrastructure. The starting point for thus specified scope of the programme is the principle of maximising development effects, which is conditional upon a complementary treatment of the technical and social sphere in a single programme and implementation stream. 1
