In Slovenia 4,5 million tons of waste material annually
Ljubljana, 5 February - The experts on ecology from Slovenia and from abroad are this week involved with the problem of storing 4,5 million tons of waste materials which Slovenia "produces" annually. The majority of these materials are used as secondary raw materials while 25.000 tons are very harmful to the environment and the people. These "radical" waste materials were the subject of an international competition. Most of them come from the chemical, automobile and wood processing industries. Their removal and storage necessitates special procedures which were proposed by the awarded projects, offered by companies from Austria, Denmark, Germany and Slovenia.
