In recent years a number of issues prompted increased use of waste as a source of fuel (recovery of energy) or material (recycling). Societal challenges such as waste management, climate change, and environmental concerns regarding pollution and human health as well as diminishing fossil resources represent some of the most important issues to be tackled by our civilization now and in the (near) future. Exploiting waste, as often unwanted and always locally available substance, offers itself as a way to at least partially alleviate these issues. Many countries have realized the importance of treating waste as a resource and have set regulations that help give a ‘second life’ to waste. For example, the EU imposed a gradual phase out on landfilling of biodegradable waste and defined a share of the municipal solid waste that should be recycled ; there is legislation on limiting methane emissions from landfills and a number of other regulations and schemes regarding waste that are aimed at reducing pollution and emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs).
