  • Dangerous Substances in Waste

    Abstract The report focuses specifically on environmental risks associated with the main final disposal technologies, landfilling and incineration. The main objective of the report is the analysis of these technologies and the description of the related emissions, the ranking of dangerous substances and a selection of relevant waste streams, for further studies, which are responsible for the ...

  • Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of PET bottles and comparative LCA of three disposal options in Mauritius

    Disposal of the increasing volume of used Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) bottles has been a cause for concern for the Mauritian Government. To assist Government in decision-making, a study on PET bottles and its disposal was undertaken using the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tool. Three disposal scenarios, namely (100%) landfilling; (100%) incineration; and 50% landfilling and 50% incineration ...

  • Hazardous waste cleans up its act - Case Study

    Instead of landfill, incineration is being used increasingly in the UK to dispose of waste while recovering energy. The processes for controlling air pollution at these facilities creates a hazardous waste that represents approximately 3.5% of the original waste input by mass. Around 170,000 tonnes of Air Pollution Control (APC) residue, the hazardous by-product of incineration, is created every ...

  • Battery recycling: the EU and Switzerland power ahead

    In battery land, and especially in battery recycling land, legislation is currently a point of focus given that the new EU Battery Directive - which includes collection and reprocessing targets for portable batteries - is scheduled to come into force on September 25 next year. At the 12th annual International Congress of Battery Recycling (ICBR), delegates shared their experiences and differing ...

  • Diverting waste from landfill - effectiveness of EU waste-management policies

    With landfill at the bottom of the European waste hierarchy, policies to divert waste from landfill play a very important role within European and national waste policies. This report analyses the effectiveness of implemented policies on the diversion of total municipal waste and biodegradable municipal waste from landfill in the context of the 1999 EU Landfill Directive and other relevant ...

  • Innovation in municipal solid waste management in England: policy, practice and sustainability

    This paper identifies influences on the design of the innovative statutory framework now driving change in waste management practice in England. The framework employs a mix of policy instruments, including a landfill allowance-trading scheme that is the first-ever economy-wide permit trading scheme and mandatory recycling targets. Despite intensive stakeholder scrutiny of the framework, concerns ...

  • Waste in The EU at the Turn of the Century

    Abstract The major part of waste in the EU ends up at landfills. In the EU waste strategy, a hierarchy for waste management has been set up: minimisation, material recovery, energy recovery and, only as the last resort, landfilling. This hierarchy is not reflected in real life. In a discussion of how to reduce amounts of waste going to landfill it is important to look at the factors ...

  • Sustainable sludge handling for the 21st Century

    Purification of municipal and industrial waste waters leads to the generation of a residue-called “excess sludge”. This material when mechanically dewatered is typically 75-90% water. The balance of the dewatered sludge consists of organic compounds (solid waste, biomass) and inert materials (sand, salts, and metals). These sludges have been to date dehydrated to reduce the aqueous fraction using ...

  • The first supermarket in Portugal Case Study

    Biowaste production is estimated to be 120 million tonnes per year in the EU alone, increasing by 10% each year. At least 40% of this is landfilled or incinerated with only 25% energy recovery, due to a lack of alternatives. When the Portuguese supermarket chain Continente looked for ways of reducing their operating costs and tackling their carbon footprint, SEaB Energy’s Flexibuster™ ...

  • Greenhouse gas emissions from waste management-assessment of quantification methods

    Of the many sources of urban greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, solid waste is the only one for which management decisions are undertaken primarily by municipal governments themselves and is hence often the largest component of cities’ corporate inventories. It is essential that decision-makers select an appropriate quantification methodology and have an appreciation of methodological ...
