Abstract: The scope of this study is to make a summary presentation of the as­pects concerning the Romanian regulation on the recovery of municipal and similar waste in energy recovery incineration plants. The authors underline that, just like the European legislation, Romanian national legislation supports and encourages recovery operations, so that the waste is used as much as pos­sible, including for obtaining electricity and/or thermal energy, and the quanti­ty of municipal waste disposed in waste storage facilities is reduced as much as possible. One of the targets required by the Romanian National Waste Manage­ment Plan, was that the quantity of stored municipal waste to be reduced to a maximum of 10%, until 2030, Romania being granted the opportunity to bene­fit from an additional five-year term, provided that all measures required in or­der to reduce the quantity of stored municipal waste to 20% of the total quan­tity of generated waste are implemented until 2030. NWMP also provides that one of the priorities of Romania in what concerns waste management and pre­vention is encouraging the production of energy from waste that cannot be re­cycled, by providing at the same time that the incineration of municipal waste with energy recovery is a very used and well-known technology.
