ESWET – European Suppliers of Waste-to-Energy Technology

ESWET (European Suppliers of Waste-to-Energy Technology) is the European association representing manufacturers in the field of Waste-to-Energy Technology.

The purpose of ESWET is to raise awareness of the positive implications of the technology in terms of better waste management, energy and the environment and, thus, to foster the development and the dissemination of Waste-to-Energy technology at the European level.

Technology from ESWET members is the heart in most of the Waste-to-Energy plants in Europe, treating non-recyclable municipal solid waste. This technology is also used by most plants worldwide.

GLOBAL RECYCLING – The Magazine for Business Opportunities & International Markets

The English-speaking GLOBAL RECYCLING Magazine is dedicated to business opportunities in the recycling industry and informs the readership about the international recycling market.

Thus, the magazine focuses on editorial coverage from the areas of international waste management, circular economy, and recycling industry. Nevertheless, the magazine does not disregard other topics such as waste paper, plastics as well as scrap and metal recycling. Additionally, every issue presents recycling processes, methods, and machinery.

Another of the magazine’s aims is to give more people access to these topics. Therefore, we attach great importance to distributing our publication at numerous international fairs, congresses, and conferences.

Apart from the visitors of these fairs, the readership of GLOBAL RECYCLING is made up of business owners, heads of departments, consultants, public authorities, and municipalities. These readers especially appreciate the various topics, which are touched upon in every issue by us.
