Materials sent to landfill could have an annual commercial value of around €5.25 billion.
Solid-waste management and recycling industries currently have a turnover of around €137 billion which is just over 1.1% of the EU’s GDP.
These areas create over 2 million jobs.
If Member States recycled 70% of their waste, they could create at least 500.000 new jobs across EU.n
Water pollution is the leading worldwide cause of deaths and diseases.
It accounts for the deaths of more than 14,000 people daily.
Around 90% of waters in China's cities are polluted
In the United States, 45 % of assessed stream miles, 47% of assessed lake acres and 32% of assessed bays and estuarine square miles are classified as polluted.
For 1 tone of paper that is recycled, we save: 17 trees, 275 pounds of sulfur, 350 pounds of limestone, 9.000 pounds of steam, 60.000 gallons of water, 225 kilowatt hours,
3.3 cubic yards of landfill space.
Almost every hour, nearly 250.000 plastic bottles
Glass is one of the very few products that can be completely recycled again and again.
Recycling aluminum saves money, energy, and manpower because preparing aluminum products from virgin metal consumes close to 100 times the power required to recycle aluminum.
CO2 accounts for about 82% of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions from human activities. Human activities are altering the carbon cycle—both by adding more CO2 to the atmosphere and by influencing the ability of natural sinks, like forests, to remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
Greenhouse gas emissions from transportation in the US have increased by about 18% since 1990. Between 1990 and 2007, CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion increased about 21.8 %- average rate 1,3% growth yearly
Eleven of the twelve years in the period (1995–2006) rank among the top 12 warmest years in the instrumental record (since 1880)
Waste prevention, eco-design, re-use and similar measures could bring net savings of € 600 billion, or 8 % of annual turnover, for businesses in the EU, while reducing total annual greenhouse gas emissions by 2-4%.
Circular economy in smart cities links producers directly with industries avoiding costs and GHC emissions.
Almost all wastes can be re-used in industry parks that are working according the industrial symbiosis philosophy.
By turning pastry waste into electricity, converting fatty acids into biodiesel and so on, the UK economy was boosted by as much as €3 billion.
EU is spending around €400bn, yearly, to pay for our imported fossil fuels.
Growing numbers of cities, states, regions seek to transition to 100% renewable energy in either individual sectors or economy-wide.
Scotland aims to achieve a rate of renewable energy use up to 100%. In 6 years they doubled their production (40%).
Methane produced by an average municipal landfill site, if converted to energy, could provide electricity to approximately 20,000 households for a year.nn
