The Role of Risk Assessment in Investment Costs Management, Based on the Example of Waste Treatment (Gasification) Facility in the City of Konin

Chapter

Abstract

The technology behind converting, disposal, and destruction of waste is constantly being modernised. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sponsors competitions and finances a considerable number of innovative scientific-research studies in this field. As a result, various project ideas can be realised and the most interesting solutions can be turned into real technology, thanks to EPA funding. In Poland, the Article 1 of the Waste Management Act of 27 April (Official Journal ‘Dz. U.’ No. 62 2001) and the Directives 91/156/EEC, 91/689/EEC, and 94/67/EEC of the European Parliament and of the Council (Dyrektywa 2010), state the rules regarding waste procedures which ensure human life and health safety, as well as environmental protection, in accordance with the rules of sustainable development, and especially the rules establishing how waste production can be avoided, or rules limiting the amount of waste and its negative impact on the environment, as well as the waste recovery or waste neutralisation rules.
