National capacities of waste disposal: Where do we stand?

The constant growth of our population goes hand in hand with an increase of waste that local authorities need to dispose of. In this context, the DP deputies Carole Hartmann and Gilles Baum asked the Minister of the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development if the capacity of the incinerator in Leudelingen and the landfill Muertendall are to be expanded any time soon.

« Am Sënn vun der Kreeslafwirtschaft an dem Schounen vun de Ressourcen soll iwwer déi nächst Joren den Undeel un Offall, dee muss verbrannt ginn oder an eng Décharge kommen, sou wäit et geet reduzéiert ginn. Trotzdeem ka kaum dovun ausgaange ginn, dass dës Fraktioun an noer Zukunft op Null erof wäert goen.

An deem Kader wollte mir der Madamm Ministesch fir Ëmwelt, Klima an nohalteg Entwécklung folgend Froe stellen:

  • Wéi vill Tonnen Offall vun de Kategorien « déchets ménagers, assimilés et encombrants » sinn an de leschte fënnef Joer pro Joer verbrannt ginn, an eng Décharge komm oder hu missen exportéiert ginn?
  • Fir de Fall, dass Offall vun de Kategorien « déchets ménagers, assimilés et encombrants » exportéiert ginn ass, fir am Ausland eliminéiert ze ginn, wat waren d’Grënn heifir?
  • Wéi vill Tonnen Offall vun de Kategorien « déchets ménagers, assimilés et encombrants » sinn an de leschte fënnef Joer pro Joer ugefall, déi net kënne verbrannt ginn, mee mussen an eng Décharge kommen?
  • Wéi schätzt d’Madamm Ministesch d’Evolutioun vun de Quantitéite Offall vun de Kategorien « déchets ménagers, assimilés et encombrants », déi all Joer ufalen, iwwer déi nächst 10 Joer an?
  • Ginn déi aktuell Kapazitéiten vun der Verbrennungsanlag zu Leideleng an der Décharge Muertendall duer, fir den Offall vun de Kategorien « déchets ménagers, assimilés et encombrants » vun den nächste Joren ze behandelen?
  • Et ass ons zu Ouere komm, dass de Gemengesyndikat SIGRE seng Décharge wäert ausbauen, kann d’Madamm Ministesch dat confirméieren?
  • Wéi vill nei Kapazitéiten wäerte sou geschaf ginn? Fir wéi laang gëtt geschat, dass déi zousätzlech Kapazitéiten duerginn?
  • Wat ass de Käschtepunkt vun dësen Aarbechten? Wéi vill Subsiden ginn an deem Kader iwwer den Ëmweltfong ausbezuelt?
  • Sollen d’Kapazitéiten vun der SIDOR och an den nächste Joren erhéicht ginn? »

Operations on intersex children – will they also be banned in Luxembourg?

Operations on intersex children are not uncommon. Intersexuality is often seen as a medical problem that needs to be addressed.

In Germany, a law is currently being discussed prohibiting this practice and aiming to strengthen intersex children in their self-determination. Such a law is planned for Luxembourg. What is the latest stand on this law and when should this law be submitted? Our deputies Carole Hartmann and Max Hahn have inquired with the respective ministries.
