gEsTABOUES a desision tool to assess greenhouse gases of sewage sludge treatment and disposal routes

Sewage sludge production increases continously reaching almost 20% (946 700 tons of dry matters in 2003 to 1 118 795 tons of dry matters in 2007) during the last decade.

In 2007, 70% of the produced sewage sludge was spread (directly or after composting). The remaining 30% was incinerated (with or without household wastes) or landfilled. Nowadays, sludge reduction is a major concern. This activity has to become more sustainable and stakeholders have to be carful to the environmental impacts of sludge treatment and disposal routes.

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).

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.

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)

Umstellung der MBA Gescher auf die kombinierte Restmüll und Bioabfallbehandlung
© Wasteconsult International (5/2015)
Die Entsorgungs-Gesellschaft Westmünsterland mbH (EGW) hat 2000 ihre Mechanisch Biologische Restmüllbehandlungsanlage (MBA) zur Konditionierung von Restmüll für die Ablagerung auf Deponien in Betrieb genommen. Die MBA wurde 2005 an die neuen gesetzlichen Anforderungen angepasst. Zur Abluftbehandlung wurde der Biofilter durch eine Regenerative Thermische Oxidationsanlage (RTO) ergänzt. Die Tunnelkompostierung wurde um eine belüftete Tafelmietenkompostierung ergänzt. Seit 2012 wurde die MBA auf die biologische Behandlung von Bioabfällen umgestellt.
