Current State of Biowaste Management in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic currently strives to comply with its obligations towards EU biowaste management requirements. The decisive Council Directive 1999/31/EC on the landfill of waste obliges all the EU member states, including the Czech Republic, to drastically reduce landfilling of biodegradable wastes or biodegradable municipal waste.

In line with the declared strategy of waste management in the countries of the European Union (EU), which was also incorporated in the legislation of the Czech Republic (CR), by 2025 municipal waste landfills are to be minimised or closed down completely, which also concerns biodegradable waste. This implies that there is a topical need to find alternatives to landfilling for the management of biodegradable municipal waste (BMW). There are several options how to process such waste, for example composting and anaerobic digestion. The paper states the data on the biowaste production in the CR and its processing methods, including further developments for its disposal.
