IGNIS aims at developing methods and tools for a sustainable continuous usage of waste to enhance climate and environmental protection in a megacity. Recycling techniques will be tested in pilot projects and scientifically evaluated in terms of technical, economical and social efficiency / performance. Also effects on climate and environment will be examined. The results will be included in a simulation tool, which allows both strategic planning and climate relevant calculations. The work programme covers structural and organisational activities (introduction to pilot project, fund raising etc.). The scientific technical work procedures include the compiling of guidelines, criteria check lists and databases, the analysis of the pilot projects, the application and modification of the simulation tool, as well as setting up and organising of a competence and training centre in Addis Ababa.
