Example of a waste stream


Data collection for solid waste treatment and disposal1
Data Collection for solid waste treatment and disposal methodologies for the Waste Sector

  • Waste composition - waste fractions

    • paper/cardboard • garden/parkwaste

    • textiles • wood

    • rubber/leather • food waste

    • plastic • ash, inerts, other

    • metal

    • glass


Data collection for solid waste treatment and disposal2
Data Collection for solid waste treatment and disposal methodologies for the Waste Sector

  • Updated values for degradable organic content in the waste fractions (default in wet and dry waste, ranges)

  • data also on industrial waste generation in some countries

    • a table with default values for composition and carbon content in industrial waste by industry type to be developed in Second Order Draft

      Activity data collection addressed both under solid waste treatment and disposal (general) and the management/treatment options (specific)


Solid waste disposal sites landfills
Solid waste disposal sites (landfills) methodologies for the Waste Sector

  • Methodological issues for estimation of CH4 emissions

    • use of the mass balance method discouraged

    • Tier 1 First order decay method developed

      • equation in GPG2000 improved (more precise and easy to use: step by step guidance and spreadsheets provided)

      • provides also an estimate on carbon stored in the landfill (check for HWP)

      • Tier 1a - waste composition FOD model

      • Tier 1b - site-type dependent FOD model


Solid waste disposal sites landfills1
Solid waste disposal sites (landfills) methodologies for the Waste Sector

  • Tier 2 - as Tier 1 but using key country-specific data (waste disposal data for at least 10 years, DOC or Lo)

  • Tier 3 - typically based on high-quality site-specific measurements or modelling


Solid waste disposal sites landfills2
Solid waste disposal sites (landfills) methodologies for the Waste Sector

Choice of activity data

  • historical data for more than 50 years (default)

    • extrapolation using population data, economic or other indicators drivers

    • MSW - default population or urban population, depending on availability of data

    • Industrial waste - industrial production by industry type, or GDP, depending on availability of data

      Reference to statistics with population and GDP data given


Solid waste disposal sites landfills3
Solid waste disposal sites (landfills) methodologies for the Waste Sector

Parameters:

  • improved guidance and/or updated values

  • methane correction factor - default also for semi-aerobic sites

  • half-life (instead of decay rate) - more transparent and easy to understand

    • by climate zone (dry and wet climates separately) and by waste compostion or site type (managed - unmanaged deep - unmanaged shallow)


Biological treatment
Biological treatment methodologies for the Waste Sector

  • Methodology for CH4 and N2O emissions

  • composting and anaerobic digestion (with energy recovery to be reported in the Energy Sector

    Simple equation

    CH4 or N2O Emissions =  Mi  EFij

  • default emission factors derived from a limited number of literature (to be improved in the SOD)

  • MB treatment - emissions depending on application (no default method or EFs) - assumes no emissions during separation


Incineration and open burning of waste
Incineration and open burning of waste methodologies for the Waste Sector

  • CO2 (from fossil carbon in waste), N2O and CH4 from incineration and open burning of waste

  • Tiers - consistent with other sources

  • Waste composition and fossil carbon content

  • EFs for both wet and dry weight


Incineration and open burning of waste1
Incineration and open burning of waste methodologies for the Waste Sector

  • open burning - important in developing countries (developed countries?)

    • default: population whose waste is not collected is assumed to burn their waste (rural population)

    • in a region where urban population exceeds 80% - assumtion that no open burning of waste occurs


Incineration and open burning of waste2
Incineration and open burning of waste methodologies for the Waste Sector

  • N2O and CH4 emissions - dependent on technology and combustion/burning conditions

  • CH4 - usually small or negligible in incineration - included for completeness and consistency with the Energy Sector

    • open burning of waste - more significant emissions

  • N2O - temperature, N-content of fuels,


Waste water treatment and discharge disposal
Waste water treatment and discharge (disposal) methodologies for the Waste Sector

  • CH4 and N2O emissions from domestic (municipal) and industrial waste water

  • simplified methodology - wastewater and sludge together in the methodology (sludge removed subtracted - guidance on emissions from disposal or use in agriculture addressed under these sector/categories)

  • improved tier-structure for CH4 emissions

  • CH4 only from main industrial sectors

  • updated default parameters

  • examples how to estimate emissions


General for all sectors indirect co 2 and n 2 o emissions
General for all sectors - indirect CO methodologies for the Waste Sector2 and N2O emissions

  • Indirect CO2 - from NMVOC and CH4 emissions from fossil sources (combustion - oxidation factors include also indirect CO2) => not relevant for the waste sector (incomplete combustion especially for open burning of waste)?

  • NOx and NH3 emissions - source of indirect N2O emissions due from nitrogen deposition => some emissions from biological treatment, wastewater and SWDSs (importance small; methodology for the NOx and NH3 emissions in CORAIR Guidebook )


Summary
Summary methodologies for the Waste Sector

  • Evolution - not revolution: methodological improvements and better default data

    • SWDS - FOD method to be used by all - improved comparability and user-friendliness

    • Biological treatment - complements the guidance, emissions estimated to be small

    • Open burning of waste - important for especially for developing countriess

      First Order Draft on the Waste Volume in 2006 GLs - needs still improvements (e.g. default values and consistency among the chapters)


2006 gls next steps
