2 Background Energy from waste is not a sustainable solution. Clean technology and environmental business are growing annually 10 %. Clean technology comprises of  renewable energy sources  material recycling  recovery of wasted materials  material-friendly processes  water treatment The SME sector in clean technology is scattered and operates locally; therefore, it needs strengthening and international cooperation to develop further.

3 Rationale A new paradigm: the change from traditional waste treatment to more positive recycling, recovery, life cycle and material saving technology.

4 Objectives Objective 1  to examine existing and future business activities around material recovery and recycling in different peripheral areas, and  to create a databank of best practices and new ideas by combining the findings from different areas.
