SOER Common environmental theme from Luxembourg - waste
Topic
Waste Waste
Published: 26 Nov 2010 Modified: 23 Nov 2010

As indicated in the ‘Why care?’ section, the main driver and pressure for waste streams and composition is the economic development of the country that gradually shifted from a rural economy to an industrial one (with the steel industry) and, finally, to a service and financial centre. The latter development was accompanied by a remarkable population growth and by an ever increasing number of cross-border commuters – see country profile.
