Landfill gas emissions are one of the largest anthropogenic sources of methane especially because of food waste (FW). To prevent these emissions growing with world population, future FW best management practices need to be evaluated. The objective of this paper was therefore to predict FW production for 2025 if present management practices are maintained, and then, to compare the impact of scenario 1: encouraging people to stay in rural areas and composting 75% of their FW, and; of scenario 2… Expand
Review of municipal solid waste management options in Malaysia, with an emphasis on sustainable waste-to-energy options
Abstract A beautiful and clean environment is the desire of every society. Malaysia is facing an uncontrolled increase in municipal solid waste (MSW) generation due to population growth, economicExpand
Biofuel production from food wastes
Increasing demand for diesel fuel and growing concerns over global warming and crude oil shortage have advanced the development of renewable alternative fuels with low greenhouse gas emissions.Expand

Scenario evaluation for the management of household solid waste in small Brazilian municipalities
As achieving Brazil’s National Policy on Solid Waste-based goals effectively is not simple, there are alternatives such as intermunicipal cooperation by consortium or privatization. Therefore, thisExpand
Analysing global food waste problem: pinpointing the facts and estimating the energy content
Food waste is a global problem. Each year food worth billions of dollars is wasted by the developed economies of the world. When food is wasted, the problem does not end at that point. More than 95%Expand

Analysis of Residential Solid Waste At Generation Sites
An essential preliminary step in municipal solid waste (MSW) management is the accurate determination of the quantities and composition of the wastes. The purpose of this study was to test aExpand
Methane Potential of Food Waste and Anaerobic Toxicity of Leachate Produced During Food Waste Decomposition
The objective of this study was to characterize the anaerobic biodegradation of food waste, including its methane potential and the anaerobic toxicity of leachate associated with food wasteExpand
Measurements of N2O and CH4 from the aerated composting of food waste.
TLDR
The addition of composted cattle manure increased N2O emissions not only at the beginning of composting, but also during the later period and resulted in two peak emission curves, suggesting the existence of anoxic or anaerobic microsite inside the waste particles even though ventilation was employed during the composting process.

Seasonal and Diurnal Methane Emissions From a Landfill and Their Regulation By Methane Oxidation
Rates of methane emission from a Swedish landfill, measured by chamber technique and permanent frames, ranged between 0.034 and 20 mmol CH4 m-2.h-1 on average. The emissions followed a seasonalExpand
The economics of municipal solid waste
This article examines the generation and management of municipal solid waste through the lens of economics. The authors estimate that the global burden of municipal solid waste amounted to 1.3Expand
Method for determination of methane potentials of solid organic waste.
TLDR
The determination of methane potentials is a biological method subject to relatively large variation due to the use of non-standardized inoculum and waste heterogeneity, therefore, procedures for addressing repeatability and reproducibility are suggested. Expand
Parametric sensitivity analysis of leachate transport simulations at landfills.
TLDR
Sensitivity analysis suggests that changes in partition coefficient, source strength, aquifer hydraulic conductivity, and dispersivity have the most significant impact on model output indicating that these parameters should be carefully selected when similar modeling studies are performed. Expand

TLDR
It is determined that acidogenic leachate from Odayeri landfill includes more species of chlorinated phenols at higher concentration, including 2,4-dichlorophenol at a concentration range 8-40 microg/l, which can be considered as an indication of reductive dechlorination. Expand
Chlorophenols in leachates originating from different landfills and aerobic composting plants.
Both type and concentration of organic contaminants in landfill leachates show great variation depending on many factors, such as type of wastes, rate of water application, moisture content, landfillExpand
