Supplementary notes

The domain consists of three data sets: Generation of waste, treatment of waste and waste treatment facilities. The data set on the generation of waste is broken down into waste categories and the source of waste generation; the data set on the treatment of waste is broken down into the type of treatment and waste category. The dataset on waste treatment facilities is broken down into the measurement variable (number of facilities, capacity), the waste operation and NUTS2 regions.

Waste categories:

The data sets contain a breakdown into 51 waste categories according to the European Waste Classification for statistical purposes: EWC-Stat. It is a mainly substance oriented classification and it distinguishes hazardous and non-hazardous waste. The classification is linked to the administrative classification List of Wastes: List of wastes.

Source of waste generation:

The generation of waste is attributed to either production or consumption activities. The actor handing over the waste to the waste management system is regarded as the source. For production activities a further breakdown is supplied in 18 economic activities according to the NACE rev. 2 classification. Three of these activities are linked to the waste management and will contain secondary waste: Waste collection, treatment and disposal activities; materials recovery (division 38), Remediation activities and other waste management services (division 39) and Wholesale of waste and scrap (class 46.77). In addition to the waste generated by businesses waste is generated by households.
