  • Environmental analysis of management systems for organic waste

    Organic waste is generally easily degradable and has a high nutrient content. Thus the risk is large that the handling of such material will generate emissions that affect the environment.

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 ...
