Organisation and facilitation of a multi-stakeholder process, scenario development with quantitative modelling (economic growth, commodities markets, patterns of consumption, waste processing technology)

How much waste will be produced in future? And what does that mean for waste management? The concerns with which the UK’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) approached Z_punkt can be broken down into these questions. Z_punkt suggested a dual-track approach: a qualitative scenario process will be accompanied by precise modelling of the future development of national waste streams. Z_punkt is modelling future waste, differentiated according to materials for private households, business and construction companies and depending on future patterns of consumption. Specific planning targets and recommendations for waste management are being deduced in close collaboration with the client.
