The classic definition of the concepts of sustainability and sustainable development lies in the Brundtland Report of the United Nations,1987, which defines sustainable development as development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Based on this definition, current economic growth is not sustainable, because it follows a linear production model with finite resources and a limited capacity to absorb waste. The ability of future generations to meet their needs on the planet is therefore severely limited by the depletion of natural resources on the one hand and the excessive accumulation of waste on the other.
The circular economy provides a potential solution to this predicament. It is a technology-focused model that generates economic growth while reducing pressure on the environment. It is premised on three principles, namely the elimination of waste and pollution, the circulation of products and materials and the regeneration of the environment.
The first step in the valorization of wet waste is the dewatering of the viscous mixture, seperating it into liquid and solid fractions. We selected the appropriate high-quality, innovative, eco-friendly technology to dewater the wet waste. Next, we treat and transform these waste products.
