Waste management (Environmental legislation)
Main Aims / Objectives
EO based services (high resolution satellite and airborne, multi & hyper spectral data) for environmental monitoring of existing plants and landfills, identification and planning of suitable areas for new plants, detection of illegal discharge areas and waste deposits as well as for monitoring mine waste sites.
The market of waste management is exposed to environmental risks, civil protection and public health issues as well as illegal activities. National authorities such as Italy and Spain are under pressure to implement a harmonized waste management system to comply with European waste legislation.
Several planning authorities (Giunta Regionale di Campania (Italy), Aragon Regional Govt (Spain), Romanian Ministry of Environment (Romania)) and monitoring agencies (ARPA-Lazio (Italy), Italian Civil Protection Department (Italy)) are being involved in specifying the requirements and assessing the benefit of the service portfolio following trials in Italy, Spain and Greece.
