Cooperation announced at WTERT's biannual conference

The Global Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council (WTERT) and D-WASTE (a global initiative that aims to make waste management easily accessible for everyone) , announced their cooperation in order to map Solid Waste Management facilities worldwide using the web and mobile application D-Waste Atlas www.atlas.d-waste.com . The announcement was made at the WTERT conference held at Columbia University in the City of New York, October 18-19, 2012.

D-Waste has developed the unique D-Waste Atlas, an internet and mobile open data map that visualizes municipal solid waste management data. D-Waste Atlas is a free, non-commercial database with waste data across the world, for comparison and benchmarking purposes, and it is based on the contribution of hundreds of scientists from different countries. D-Waste Atlas will soon be supported by InfraWaste, a crowdsourcing mobile application for data collection.

WTERT's contribution will be mainly to identify waste to energy facilities and their characteristics using its valuable scientific and technical resources as well as its broad expertise in waste to energy.

On behalf of WTERT, Professor Themelis, mentioned that with this cooperation, WTERT aims to make reliable data about waste to energy facilities easily available for every decision maker in the world. According to the CEO of D-WASTE, Antonis Mavropoulos, very soon other organizations will support the Atlas initiative as everyone recognizes the value that Atlas brings to waste management scientists and decision makers.

WTERT has already shared their master list of WTE plants around the world, out of which, up to 350 have already been mapped on atlas.d-waste.com.
