RRE said that it would focus on the sales, marketing and project development of waste processing facilities in Poland and Croatia using WtEC’s proprietary waste to energy technology.According to Rank, a special purpose entity will be formed for the construction of each facility. The parties to the joint venture agreement will provide these entities with services relating to administrative procedures, design and execution, technology and know-how in managing and recycling waste.Rank added that a group of the entities will be supervised by a holding company which will handle commercialisation and promotion of the WtEC technology, management of individual projects as well as offering the technology licence to other interested business entities.Waste management in Poland follows a National Waste Management Plan that follows the EU Waste Framework Directive (Directive 2008/98/EC), but the country has traditionally relied on landfill.The changes in legislation require that waste is now processed which means the building of new facilities and an investment in processing equipment.
