Total mercury and methylmercury concentrations were measured in brain, kidney, liver, and fur from several mink and otter collected in south-central Ontario. There was a large range in concentrations of both total and methylmercury. The percentage of the total mercury present as methylmercury varied among the various tissues; however, the percentage mercury(More)
UNLABELLED GOAL AND SCOPE: The life cycle inventory of landfill emissions is a key point in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of waste management options and is highly subject to discussion. Result sensitivity to data inventory is accounted for through the implementation of scenarios that help examine how waste landfilling should be modeled in LCA. METHOD Four(More)
This paper presents an analysis, using process simulation, of the waste management system applied in a collection basin located in the south of Paris (France). The study was conducted in close cooperation with the "SYCTOM of Paris agglomeration", an operator in charge of managing 2.5 milliontons/yr of municipal solid waste in the Paris area. The analysis(More)
The environmental performance of mechanical biological pre-treatment (MBT) of Municipal Solid Waste is quantified using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), considering one of the 57 French plants currently in operation as a case study. The inventory is mostly based on plant-specific data, extrapolated from on-site measurements regarding mechanical and biological(More)
Hair samples were collected from otter (Lutra canadensis) trapped in several parts of south-central Ontario, Canada. The concentrations of total Hg in hair were compared with methyl mercury concentrations in liver tissues from the same individuals to determine if hair is a suitable monitoring tissue. Hg in the two tissues was significantly correlated. Hair(More)
In a context of waste management policies aimed at promoting waste prevention and recycling and, conversely, reducing waste landfilling, this study investigates how waste is generated and treated in a consumption perspective. A Waste Input-Output Analysis is implemented that considers 14 waste fractions and four waste management techniques. Input-Output(More)
Incineration is the main option for residual Municipal Solid Waste treatment in France. This study compares the environmental performances of 110 French incinerators (i.e., 85% of the total number of plants currently in activity in France) in a Life Cycle Assessment perspective, considering 5 non-toxic impact categories: climate change, photochemical(More)
