  • Abstract This paper evaluates the environmental impacts and identifies the hotspots associated with the sub-processes of the proposed landfill extension (LFE) and advanced incineration facility (AIF) for municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal in Hong Kong using life cycle assessment methodology. On the basis of the data collected, assumptions made, and system boundary defined, results show that sub-processes of LFE that provide most burdens on human health and ecosystem quality are biological… CONTINUE READING
