On the 27th November 2014 Thursday the “Ecological approach in the municipal solid waste utilization” conference was held in the Ceremonial Hall of the Academic Committee of Miskolc. The reason of this event was the current 20-30% glass, plastic and paper waste recovery rate should be increased up to 80-90% until 2035 in Hungary. This gives several tasks for the future engineers. European Union funds will be available for the solutions within the framework of various operational programs (OPs).
