Life Cycle Assessment of Waste to Energy Processes: Incineration and Anaerobic Digestion

A Tawatsin
Municipal solid waste poses environmental and health risks to the community. In selecting methods to deal with the waste, environmental impacts considerations are important criteria. Environmentally sustainable waste management processes should also decrease greenhouse gases. Waste to energy (WtE) processes lessens the use of fossil fuels, reducing greenhouse gases. The research aims to assess the environmental impacts and energy recovery of WtE processes, specifically incineration (combustion of waste) and anaerobic digestion (AD) to select suitable...
