  • Sustainable Waste Management Research and Development A Successful Use of Landfill Tax Credit Funds?

     The UK Government in October 1996 introduced the Landfill Tax to ensure that landfill waste disposal reflects its environmental cost whilst promoting a more sustainable approach to waste management. The Landfill Tax Credits system is a means of enabling some of the tax raised to be invested to promote sustainable waste management, but this paper argues that this system is inadequately ...


  • Enhanced waste-management practices reduce carbon emissions and support lower landfill taxes

    Landfill taxes and ‘enhanced waste management’ practices have been introduced to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill and to convert waste into useful products. This study investigated the interplay of these two policy options in Belgium, generating findings that could help Europe move towards a resource-efficient, circular economy. Landfill taxes and ‘enhanced waste ...

  • Cutting landfill costs - not capabilities

    The garbage business is generally a good indicator of the economy’s strength. And while the bad news is that waste tonnage is down at most landfills, the good news is that there is a bottom. Most of the drop is due to a slumping construction industry, compounded by less consumer buying. But the garbage business—like taxes and death—is relatively constant. Some landfills are ...

  • Landfills Expand Energy Output

    HIGH fossil fuel prices and growing concern about global climate change are creating favorable conditions for landfill gas energy (LFGE) projects. Notably, endorsement of LFGE by Federal agencies and many states as a form of “green” power has enabled LFGE developers to earn premiums for electricity marketed through green power programs, and to benefit from expanded federal tax credits for ...

  • Solar energy landfill caps

    Things weren’t going well at the Erewhon Landfill. It was time to close the facility, and there was no soil left onsite for construction of the cap. Erewhon was a County facility, and the money available for 30 years of post-closure gas monitoring, groundwater sampling and reporting, erosion repairs and maintenance of a grass cover was sorely needed elsewhere. The landfill manager recalled ...

  • Carbon tax a sensible first step, but for how long: Australia

    The Carbon Tax is a good first step in addressing Australia's high carbon emissions but we really need to introduce the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) in 2015 for the carbon price to be an effective pollution deterrent according to one of Australia's most senior economists. "Many economists agree that carbon pricing is the most efficient method of reducing greenhouse gases, and that the carbon ...

  • Landfill Gas Use Trends In The United States

    MOST PEOPLE think of landfills as a necessary evil at best, but our current primary method of waste management generates a by-product with significant energy value - landfill gas (LFG). Collection and control of LFG results in significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. With the greater focus on climate change, a burgeoning market for GHG emission offsets is emerging and landfills ...

In part, this change has been due to the introduction of landfill taxes by the government, implemented to encourage companies to look at suitable and sustainable alternatives. This case study examines the application of key performance indicators (KPI) to monitor SMEs spent ...

  • Europe’s objective: recycle more waste and send less to landfills

    Is waste a problem or a resource? Waste is both, depending on what we do with it. It is a problem because it can affect people’s health and the environment. For example, landfills are an important source of methane emissions, which is a powerful greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. Run off from landfills can contaminate ground waters and soil, which can then enter the food ...

  • Feasibility of landfill gas as a liquefied natural gas fuel source for refuse trucks

    The purpose of this paper is to develop a methodology to evaluate the feasibility of using landfill gas (LFG) as a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel source for heavy-duty refuse trucks operating on landfills. Using LFG as a vehicle fuel can make the landfills more self-sustaining, reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, and reduce emissions and greenhouse gases. Acrion Technologies Inc. in ...

  • Recycling Vs. Landfills and Incinerators – Do Benefits of One Outweigh the Other?

    Believing the 2011 survey results of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American nationals generate more than 240 million tons of waste every year. Often referred to as Municipal Solid Waste, this waste originates from households, schools, hospitals, and business establishments.

  • 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 ...
