Biowaste

Decision support tool for collection and treatment of source-sorted organic municipal solid waste

image of Biowaste

Waste management strategies focus on waste minimization and on better utilisation of the resources in the waste in all the Nordic countries. Better handling of municipal waste is in focus, as it is a significant waste fraction with many unused potentials. A tool for support of local decisions about handling of the municipal organic solid waste has been developed in order to cover the spectrum of technological solutions available today and further include the local conditions and priorities in the Nordic countries. The tool focuses on the most important environmental aspects without losing the national or global perspective. Further the tool is kept simple in order to secure that the necessary information can be provided locally.

Sammenfatning (in Danish)

I alle de nordiske lande fokuseres der på affaldsstrategier, som går ud på at minimere affaldsmængderne og på at udnytte de ressourcer, der findes i affaldet. Bedre håndtering af byernes affald er ligeledes i fokus, fordi de udgør en central affaldsfraktion med mange uudnyttede potentialer for forbedret håndtering. I de senere år er der etableret mange fuld-skala systemer med kildesortering af det organiske husholdningsaffald og der er gennemført mange projekter for at opnå den bedst mulige håndtering og udnyttelse af affaldets potentialer. Kompostering og bioforgasning er de teknologier, der er brugt for at behandle den organiske del af husholdningsaffaldet; men omfanget af de to metoder og de tekniske systemer, der er anvendt, er meget forskellig i de nordiske lande.
