ICP is actively working on the deve­lop­ment of was­te pre­ven­ti­on, reduc­tion, recy­cling and eli­mi­na­ti­on, towards an eco­lo­gi­cal­ly and eco­no­mi­c­al­ly for­ward-loo­king clo­sed loop recy­cling manage­ment: we plan and moni­tor all activi­ties which are con­cer­ned both with indus­tri­al and com­mer­ci­al was­te as well as was­te from the ser­vices sec­tor, was­te from house­holds and public sec­tors was­te such as roads and parks.

In future was­te manage­ment will be more stron­gly inte­gra­ted in com­pre­hen­si­ve mate­ri­als manage­ment. We are con­vin­ced that effec­tive and long-term was­te reduc­tion by was­te pre­ven­ti­on can only be achie­ved with this type of recy­cling manage­ment. In Ger­ma­ny this pro­cess of pro­tec­tion of the envi­ron­ment and its resour­ces is exem­pla­ry. For this rea­son we see it not only as an oppor­tu­ni­ty but also as an obli­ga­ti­on to trans­fer our exten­si­ve know­ledge in this area to other coun­tries bey­ond our own bor­ders.

Sin­ce 1991 ICP has been fol­lo­wing deve­lop­ments in was­te manage­ment, which in the last few deca­des has under­go­ne drastic chan­ges. For ICP was­te manage­ment today means the ent­i­re ran­ge of all activi­ties and tasks which are con­nec­ted with the pre­ven­ti­on, reduc­tion, recy­cling and eli­mi­na­ti­on of was­te.
