What are the societal, technological and market challenges arising from the management of inert waste? How to overcome them? The INERTWASTE partners spent two days in Maribor, Slovenia, for their second meeting focused on these tough questions. They discussed about the difficulty to find right economic models or adequate support (financial challenges), how to optimize recycled materials and find land (technological challenges), or some specific societal challenges like the lack of awareness, the lack of communication between companies and research centers and the “not in my backyard” attitude. The presentations of various good practices from partner regions, contributing to tackling these issues in a positive way, were completed by a study visit to a collection and recycling facility and a brainstorming session to dive into the root causes of identified challenges. This second Transnational Learning Journey also focused on the policy instrument and territorial challenges of the regional host, the Regional Development Agency of Podravje – Maribor.  

Presentations from the TLJ are all available on the event page.
