    Waste is one of the most abundant resources on the planet, and it’s generally buried in eco-harmful landfills. The green economy has to address this, which means a rich opportunity for eco-conscious job-seekers. If you want to push society toward sustainability through increased recycling and reuse, waste management may be your calling in a green [ ]. @article{osti_, title = {The impact of municipal solid waste treatment methods on greenhouse gas emissions in Lahore, Pakistan}, author = {Batool, Syeda Adila and Chuadhry, Muhammad Nawaz}, abstractNote = {The contribution of existing municipal solid waste management to emission of greenhouse gases and the alternative scenarios to reduce .

    Recycling saves land, reduces the amount of solid waste, and energy consumption and pollution. Advantages of recycling Reduces air and water pollution, saves energy, reduces mineral demand, reduces greenhouse emissions, reduces solid waste production and disposal, protect biodiversity, can save money, and important part of economy.   As explained above, waste management if done in a proper manner not only eliminates the surrounding waste but also will reduce the intensity of the greenhouse gases like methane, carbon monoxide which is emitted from the wastes accumulated. The depth of the existing landfills and incineration will be curbed, thereby cutting down the harmful.

Waste Manage Res 27(8)–, Fundamental in greenhouse gas accounting: concepts . The emission of greenhouse gases and the impact from recycling the organic fraction of solid waste were investigated from a life cycle (LCA) perspective. Three different treatment schemes were investigated with the aid of a pilot apparatus including exclusively composting (COMP), integrated solid anaerobic batch not inoculated and post-composting (SADBPC), and an Author: Francesco Di Maria, Federico Sisani.

Rapid population growth, high standards of living, and technological development are constantly increasing the diversity and quantity of solid waste. The production of solid municipal waste associated with the high proportion of organic waste and its improper disposal lead to considerable environmental pollution due to the emission of greenhouse gases such as Author: Hosam El-Din Mostafa Saleh.

T. Michael, in Waste to Energy Conversion Technology, Greenhouse gas profile of WTE. Waste to energy achieves a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through three separate mechanisms: (1) by generating electrical power or steam, waste to energy avoids carbon dioxide (CO 2) emissions from fossil fuel-based electrical generation; (2) the waste to.

Solid waste management falls under the authority of Ministry of Environment. 6 By law, solid waste management refers to transporting, storage, disposal and treatment of wastes. A rough estimate suggests that ab tonnes of greenhouse gases are emitted from the landfill each year.

Decentralized initiative. Activities involved in the management of solid waste generate (GHGs) such as carbon dioxide, methane, and small amounts of nitrous oxide.

The global warming potential of methane is 25 times as much and nitrous oxide times as much as that of carbon dioxide, over the long run ( years). The waste sector is an important contributor to climate change. CH4 produced at solid waste disposal sites contributes approximately percent to the annual global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions.

Emissions from solid waste disposal are expected to increase with increasing global population and by: Landfill gas is created as the organic waste in the landfill decomposes. Landfill gas is made up of approximately 50% methane, approximately 50% carbon dioxide, and trace amounts of other gases.

These other gases actually cause the odor, which smells a lot like –. Waste hierarchy. The waste hierarchy refers to the "3 Rs" reduce, reuse and recycle, which classifies waste management strategies according to their desirability in terms of waste waste hierarchy is the cornerstone of most waste minimisation strategies.

The aim of the waste hierarchy is to extract the maximum practical benefits from products and to .Solid waste is the unwanted or useless solid materials generated from human activities in residential, industrial or commercial areas.

It may be categorised in three ways. According to its: origin (domestic, industrial, commercial, construction or institutional) contents (organic material, glass, metal, plastic paper etc).- Developing countries solid wastes end up in open dumps where some ppl use the waste out an existence.
