1.        Background

This project seeks the construction of an Organic Processing Plant (OPP) for the treatment of organic waste mainly collected from household and commercial entities all over the Maltese Islands. The project therefore aims at improving waste management in Malta by reducing the amount of biodegradable waste sent to landfill to achieve the targets set by the Waste Framework Directive (WFD) by 2035.

The proposal requires an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as per Schedule I, Category II, Section and of the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations (S.L. 549.46).
