  2. 2. Systems Aspects of Increased Swedish Waste Incineration

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Jenny Sahlin; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mekanisk energiteknik; Mechanical energy engineering; waste management; waste incineration; recycling; biological treatment; district heating; landfilling ban; incineration tax; MSW; waste import; value of households’ time.;

    Abstract : Abstract Recent bans on landfilling of combustible and organic waste in Sweden have resulted in an increase in alternative waste treatment, especially waste incineration with energy recovery. This thesis elucidates how the current increase in Swedish waste incineration affects and is affected by the two systems to which it belongs: the waste management and the energy systems. READ MORE
