Why is it important?

The methodology increases the cost-effectiveness and optimizes recirculation and recycling. Profitability increases, the technology is advanced and environmental conditions improve when recirculating and recycling solid wastes and energy. The distribution-equity of such facilities is improved.


My method will constitute support tools for management of energy and other natural resources. My EUROPE model will be applied to analyze government policies for recirculation and recycling of solid wastes and energy.
