Waste is generated exclusively by human activity and waste management is a first-rate economic issue. The waste is inadequate for further use without additional treatment and processing procedures, which requires the application of new methods of treatment and new technology.
Climate change is increasingly affecting the safety, health and lives of people, property and the environment, economic stability and the functioning of the community. It is very likely that the cause of warming largely lies in the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations, which is the result of human activities. The EU has adopted a new target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions: to reduce emissions by 20% by 2020 compared to 1990 levels.
Energy is an economic activity that deals with the use of various energy sources and electricity production. Energy is important for the development of the whole society because in the modern world the economic development of a country almost entirely depends on the available energy sources, their utilization and application in production and consumption. In an effort to achieve the highest possible degree of energy self-sufficiency, the EU, in addition to conventional energy sources, encourages the development and use of renewable energy sources.
