1.Background for the projections
What information did we use to estimate CH4 generation from landfills?
2. Key parameters
3. Future work
The reason: An econometric model has been developed in the ETC/RWM, but for MSW only
In MSW (contains 20-50% biowaste and 10-25%paper)
Recycling (incl. composting)
Source - Separated fractions:
Markets, commerce and offices

1999: Directive enters into force
OBS!: Only MUNICIPAL biodegradable waste: no sludge, no industrial wasteThe Landfill Directive targets
MSW generation and BMW landfilling trend in the EU15
Are MS on the way to meet the LD targets?
