Communication between policymakers and practitioners: European representative organisations visit Dutch Waste sector
Dutch Waste Management Association (DWMA) – 20 December 2022 – Practice-based knowledge is essential for effective policy. Two European delegations visited leading Dutch waste companies to get an impression of how the Dutch waste sector works. Working visits like these are an important way of learning from each other. ‘Seeing how things work in practice tells you much more than reading about them.’
Last summer two European representative organisations visited the Dutch waste sector: a team from the European Waste Management Association (FEAD) with secretary-general Valerie Plainemaison, and three representatives of the Confederation of European Waste-to-Energy Plants (CEWEP), including Fabio Poretti, its technical and scientific officer.
