In the framework of the Tunisian-German cooperation (Bavarian State) and in partnership with the Ministry of Local Affairs and Environment and the National Agency of Waste Management ANGED, a pilot project of selective sorting of solid waste at the ecological space "Ile de propreté" related to the municipality of Siliana was inaugurated by ANGED in the presence of the civil society, and the actors of the environment:

"Together for an integrated waste management" is a project financed by the Free State of Bavaria and is implemented by a consortium of various partners led by the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT. This institute is part of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, which comprises 75 research institutes in applied sciences.

The EGIDD project is part of the support to the national strategy for sustainable and integrated waste management. It aims to raise citizens' awareness and involve them in the approach to environmental preservation and learning the culture of SORTING.

The EGIDD project is a kind of behavioral change for citizens through awareness and communication campaigns. In this context, we interviewed Mr. WERNER P. BAUER, Vice President GWC, and Managing Director of the WtERT Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council.
