Abstract: 
Waste quantities in Austria
Weight-based figures on collection quantities are derived from data collected by the governmental authorities of the various federal provinces, data from waste management programs for specific industries, data from the Waste Data Network, and expert opinion. An overview is provided in figure 17. Especially in terms of non-hazardous waste (with the exception of waste generated in households and comparable establishments), these figures are for the most part estimates and therefore refer only to weight potentials. But they do give a realistic overview of the waste situation in Austria.
With due consideration of some 20 million tonnes of rather unproblematic excavated soil, the potential waste stream generated in Austria amounts to 46.5 million tonnes, or 54.5 million cubic meters, per year. These wastes are recovered and treated in approximately 1500 facilities, where waste from third parties is accepted.
Analyses, in which planning activities in Austria are also considered, have shown that additional incineration capacities for the treatment of 2.85 million tonnes of wastes will be required.
