Mission statement: Unique & innovative ecological waste management and renewable energy solutions facilitated by its memebrs

Vision: To drive reduction in waste pollution, carbon emissions, and improve economic efficiency in key regions of Slovakia  through:

  • Facilitating an application of innovative and bespoke waste-to-energy solutions to convert non-recyclable waste materials into usable heat, electricity and fuel.
  • Increase in use of renewable energy facilities without an impact on biodiversity.

To identify opportunities that enable cluster members to innovate, educate and improve as:

  • Cluster members are gaining ability to participate in discussions about environmental challenges within related regions and then be the first to offer their unique solutions.
  •  They also get an access to information about international activities in waste-management industry which enables them to contribute and share solution ideas with international partners.

Key activities:

  • Working with regional, national, international agencies & relevant parties to identify opportunities and support joint projects in the area of eco waste management & renewable energy sources.
  • Actiovely helping members to ensure their unique solutions are prioritised and implemented while supporting cooperation to further progress their innovation activities
  • Providing Education and Sharing of key information through conferences, workshops and advertising.
  • Lobby responsible regional governments to facilitate co-operation, prioritisation of resource re-use, treatment and disposal of waste, and creation of more effective environmentally sensitive recycling strategies.  
  • Proposal of conceptual & bespoke solutions via our members to applicable organisations, with the goal to drive sustainability practises, improve environmental efficiency through eliminating waste by implementing sustainable  resource recovery practices
  • Provide an active input into and support of projects directly driving delivery of objectives outlined in the EÚ Recovery & Resiliance Facility
