In the district of Leoben, about 12 300 tons of municipal waste were buried without any energy recovery until 2003. Since 2004, landfill regulations prescribe a pre-treatment of waste before landfill deposit and a new scheme for waste management with multiple treatment options allowed a reduction of municipal waste to a quarter and the production of heat and electricity for local use.
