The worldwide demand for recycling and disposal technologies is large and will continue to grow. This is also due to the fact that raw materials are becoming scarcer and that emerging economies are showing an increasing environmental awareness. Low-waste production and environmentally sound recycling processes are suitable methods to limit the increase in waste volumes, to use raw materials economically and to minimize the disposal costs or follow-up costs arising from illegal dumping. Recycling and waste disposal technologies can limit environmental degradation and negative social impacts and contribute to a more efficient use of resources. Owing to stringent national environmental requirements, the German recycling and waste disposal industry is extremely well set up to meet this global demand. German companies already hold a considerable international market share of about 25% in this sector. This level of performance must be maintained and expanded.
