  • German incineration

    German incineration facilities suffer from a very low degree of capacity utilization. During the second half of the 90'ies, they were heavily subsidized, so the country-wide capacity got too big. As far as I know, Germany imports potentially hazardous waste (i.e. disposable diapers or medical equipment) from all over the EU. I didn't know they would go so far as to import waste from India.

    Sadly, it is not "Germany" that has the incineration technolgy. Its the companies, and they will not give it away for free. Maybe the leading German technical universities are a better contact?

    The GIZ (former GTZ) is a development organization only by name in my opinion. Considering former projects of the GIZ, like reimporting electronic parts from India after they were repaired from highly skilled but lowly paid (from a German viewpoint) Indian workers, shows that they organize profitable joint-ventures, mostly profitable for German companies of course.
