  1. 1. A Systems Engineering Approach to National Waste Management

    Author : Maria Ljunggren Söderman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; waste management planning; biological treatment; district heating; global warming potential; environmental impact; material recovery; systems engineering; energy recovery; modelling; waste management;

    Abstract : During recent decades, waste management has gradually shifted focus, from waste disposal to integrated waste management of potentially valuable resources and residues. The number and variety of waste streams to handle is large, as well as the diversity of treatment options available. READ MORE

  2. 2. Improving Model-Based Systems Analysis of Waste Management

    Author : Mattias Olofsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : material recycling; modelling; import; energy recovery; greenhouse gas emissions; export; systems analysis; scrap markets; waste prevention; waste management;

    Abstract : Model-based systems analysis is a tool to support decision-makers in the field of waste management. Of special concern in this thesis is the development of mathematical models for the analysis of the technological system. The aim of the models (here denoted WMS models) is to address whole waste management systems, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Solid waste management based on cost-benefit analysis using the WAMED model

    Author : Viacheslav Mutavchi; Jan Stenis; William Hogland; Torleif Bramryd; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Economic models; economic incentives; solid waste management SWM schemes; baling economics; municipal solid waste MSW management; ecological– economic efficiency ECO-EE ; cost-benefit analysis CBA ; full cost accounting FCA analysis; the WAMED model; the COSTBUSTER model; the EUROPE model.; Environmental technology; Miljöteknik; Business administration; Företagsekonomi;

    Abstract : Efficient waste management enables the protection of human health, reducing environmental pollution, saving of natural resources, and achieving sustainable and profitable management of energy. In many countries, the general guidelines for waste management are set by national or local waste management plans. READ MORE

  4. 4. System Expansion and Allocation in Life Cycle Assessment With Implications for Wastepaper Management

    Author : Tomas Ekvall; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; allocation; system expansion; LCI methodology; waste incineration; waste management; system boundaries; life cycle inventory analysis; paper recycling; environmental life cycle assessment; modelling;

    Abstract : The choice of system boundaries and allocation methods can have decisive effects on the results and conclusions of a life cycle assessment (LCA). System expansion makes it possible to model the indirect effects of a decision; however, this modelling is often based on inaccurate assumptions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards sustainable solid waste management in Jordan

    Author : Mohammad Aljaradin; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []

    Abstract : Jordan is a country with a growing population that is undergoing rapid modernization. The increased volume of solid waste and associated logistical difficulties, the steady growth in the cost of waste management and the risk to human health are sources of concern. READ MORE
