On March 13, 2017, the cabinet of the Hessian state government adopted the Integrated Climate Protection Plan 2025 (ICPP). The package of measures contained in this plan also provides for the creation of a state-wide waste avoidance strategy. The aim of the “potential study” is to provide a solid decision-making basis for the development of this waste avoidance strategy. For this purpose, the product/waste streams considered in depth in the federal waste avoidance program with the participation of the federal states II (AVP II) are analyzed for their respective climatic/environmental relevance by evaluating the volume streams in Hesse.
For the analyzed product/waste streams, both established and new AV approaches in Hesse will be determined and examined with regard to their avoidance potential, their feasibility and possible success indicators. Since the goal is a state-wide waste avoidance strategy, the focus is particularly on waste avoidance activities in which state actors are involved as initiators, multipliers or direct actors.
