Press release from: WUSME World Union of SMEs



Participants in the Waste to Energy Workshop in San Marino on 6th September 2014 were delegates from China, India, Africa and European Countries. The Conference has been opened by H.E. Mrs. Antonella Mularoni, State Secretary in charge of territory, environment, International relations and waste management for the Republic of San Marino. She offered the active cooperation of the RSM Government in all further endeavors of WUSME to help solving environmental and waste problems in San Marino and in the Adriatic Italian region.
Results: WUSME President Gian Franco Terenzi convened in cooperation with WUSME Vice Presidents from France and India this Workshop bearing in mind that WASTE is part of the global economy, as more than 4 billion metric tons of waste are been worldwide produced every year, containing either garbage or “gold”.
It is possible with modern technologies to convert such garbage in valuable commodities with a market price like crude oil, gas and electricity. More than 90 % of all SMEs and Crafts are actively involved in waste management and new waste technologies, such as recycling of valuable raw materials and the use of organic waste from household and industry which can nowadays be converted to commodities such as oil, gas, organic fertilizers and building materials. The workshop heard statements from WUSME Vice President J.S. Juneja, from Chinese delegates, from experts from Canada, Germany, Hungary and Austria. The Secretary General of WUSME Norbert Knoll von Dornhoff mentioned that the World Bank recently issued a report regarding the environmental situation of the Adriatic Countries. Therein Rimini and other cities at the Adria are being marked as so called HOT SPOTS which means that these regions already heavily suffering from pollution of various sources, particularly from plastic waste and chemical fertilizers from agriculture. With a view at recent programs initiated by the European Union such as the 2014 Adriatic Environmental Strategy and initiatives of the United Nations it is now the best time to start in the region of San Marino and Italy a project as a model for advanced technology waste to energy. It is assumed that in this region 500.000 inhabitants, including tourists, each person producing 600 kg waste a year would generate 300.000 metric tons of organic waste every year. A Canadian German- Switzerland based company offered to deliver a low temperature catalytic conversion plant in this region capable of processing a minimum of 150.000 tons of communal and industrial waste to high quality petrol, electricity and other valuable commodities. This Company would finance this plant with a value of 200 million euros as an own investment, provided that they could get a license for such a plant and the guarantee that the waste would be delivered to the plant. Also Hungarian companies have developed similar plants for smaller amounts of waste which would be suitable for implementation in San Marino. All these technologies cause no pollution neither to water nor air. The Chinese delegate Mr. Dai Jian, director of one of the biggest industry parks in China for SMEs, proposed that WUSME shall with their assistance open an own office in this industry park and convene early next year a workshop for presenting innovative technologies in China.
WUSME President Terenzi expressed his active support in forming a Permanent Commission Waste to Energy with the task to work out a detailed program to the consideration of Governments of Adriatic Countries and the Republic of San Marino.
