Life cycle impact assessment of the environmental infrastructures in operation phase: Case of an industrial waste incineration plant

A life cycle impact assessment was applied in an industrial waste incineration plant to evaluate the direct and indirect environmental impacts based on toxicity and non-toxicity categories. The

Municipal Waste Management Strategy Review and Waste-to-Energy Potentials in New Zealand

Municipal waste management and Waste-to-Energy (WtE) potentials in New Zealand are discussed. The existing main waste management strategy of New Zealand is to reduce, reuse and recycle waste. Most of

The model was used to quantify the environmental performance of the incineration plant in Aarhus, Denmark before and after its upgrading in terms of improved flue gas cleaning and energy recovery and demonstrated its usefulness in identifying the various processes and substances that contributed to environmental loadings as well as to environmental savings.

C balance, carbon dioxide emissions and global warming potentials in LCA-modelling of waste management systems

A simplified model of carbon flows is presented for the waste management system and the surrounding industries, represented by the pulp and paper manufacturing industry, the forestry industry and the energy industry, showing that criteria for assigning global warming contributions are partly linked to the system boundary conditions.

Environmental assessment of solid waste systems and technologies: EASEWASTE

The EASEWASTE model can identify the most environmentally sustainable solution, which may differ among waste materials and regions and can add valuable information about environmental achievements from each process in a solid waste management system.

The content of fossil carbon in the input waste, for example as plastic, was found to be critical for the overall level of the GHG emissions, but also the energy conversion efficiencies were essential.
