Waste management in Province of Torino is going through a difficult period because of two main aspects: the start-up of the first incinerator, with a nominal capacity of 421000 tons/year, which will dispose of more than 35% of produced municipal solid waste (MSW), and the Regional directive which imposes that source separation have to reach the value of 50% at the start-up of the incinerator itself. The Provincial directive in force (Programma Provinciale di Gestione dei Rifiuti, PPGR2005) foresees also the realization of another incinerator with a nominal capacity of 274000 tons/year; when this plant will be realized, the sum of the separately collected waste destined to reuse and recycling, and the potentiality of the incinerators for power recovery will exceed the amount of produced waste; this will offer exhaustive guarantee for a satisfactory management notwithstanding eventual technical drawbacks.

Waste management system in the Province of Torino will change when, in 2011, a new incinerator will be fully operative. Considering the scarce residual capacity of landfills, the Piemonte Region has imposed to reach the 50% of source separation by 2011 in order to cover the needs until the start up of the incinerator. As it has been already registered in some cases, the target can be reached only with a door to door modality of source separation. By this way the separately collected organic fraction will increase and this implies the improvement of biological plants system; besides unavoidable quality changes will cause time lengthening in biological treatments with a resulting plants potentiality reduction.

Development of local municipal solid waste management in the Western Transdanubia region of Hungary

Hungarian municipal solid wastes (MSW) management has developed tremendously over the past 15 years. More than 3,000 landfills and dumps had been closed, just to mention one improvement. However, still, lots of work is necessary to accomplish the EU’s ambitious aim of decreasing landfilling and increasing recycling and composting.

Municipal Solid Waste includes commercial and residential wastes generated in municipal or notified areas, in either solid or semi-solid form excluding industrial hazardous wastes, but including treated bio-medical wastes (MoEF, 2000). The quality and quantity of MSW generated by a particular community will vary according to their socio-economic status, cultural habits, urban structure, population and commercial activities. Asian countries are facing MSWM problems due to the rapid growth in MSW generation rate. The total quantity of waste generated by 23 metro cities in India was 30,000 tpd in 1999, which has increased considerably to about 52,000 tpd (Inance et al, 2004).

Products with good environmental performance are an attractive proposition to consumers seeking to exert their purchasing power for environmental benefit. One way of enhancing a product’s environmental performance is through consideration of the packaging. Plastic is widely used as a packaging material, particularly in the fast moving consumer goods sector. This is because it is a versatile material with a range of characteristics (Box 1) which enable it to provide different packaging functions (containerisation, protection, preservation, handling and dosing, labelling and presentation). It is estimated that the overall use of plastics in Western Europe in 2004 was 43.5 million tonnes (APME, 2007) and consumption of plastics is expected to increase at a rate of about 5% each year (IBAW, 2007). The biggest single user of plastic in Western Europe is the packaging sector, accounting for 37% of total plastic (APME, 2007). (Session A15: LCA in waste management)

In the bifa Text No 64, the collection of biowaste without biowaste bags was compared to collection in paper bags, PE bags and biowaste bags made of the compostable plastic ecovio.
