INFRASTRUKTUR & UMWELT Professor Böhm und Partner

INFRASTRUKTUR & UMWELT (IU) is a consulting company with its headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. Our consulting services specialise on environmental & spatial planning, energy and climate protection, climate change adaptation, flood and heavy rain risk management. IU’s main areas of work include also solid waste management (SWM) and development cooperation (DC). For more than 30 years IU has been supporting the implementation of SWM projects in various countries worldwide. Amongst other, IU conducts concept and feasibility studies, develops SWM plans on national, regional and local level and is giving support to preparation and implementation of integrated SWM systems.

The team of the SWM department of INFRASTRUKTUR & UMWELT is a compilation of young and dynamic professionals with expertise and skills of long-standing staff. For our short and long-term projects in either South-East Europe, Northern and sub-Saharan Africa or Western, Central and Southeast Asia, this mixture proves innovation and effectiveness. We see that it has creative potential to contribute to closing material cycles and protecting water, soil, climate and human health around the globe. Therefore, we seek exchange, networking and merging opportunities. We anticipate to synergise with international and local knowledge for a common goal of a circular economy.

Safe disposal used to be the most important function of waste management, but there has been a transformation in tasks. Aspects such as resource protection and efficiency gained importance and are now the priorities of circular economy. Especially in times, where climate change is one of the biggest global challenges, increased awareness of resource accessibility and its protection is needed. For INFRASTRUKTUR & UMWELT, circular economy contributes to climate change mitigation considering waste avoidance, reutilization and recycling. Hence, IU is active in the preparation and implementation of Integrated SWM systems that advocate separation at source and recycling activities.
