Clique para acessarComparative study of municipal solid waste treatment technologies using life cycle assessment method

Idioma: Portugus
Assunto: Life Cycle
Resumo: The aim of the study is to analyze three different waste treatment technologies by life cycle assessmenttool. Sanitary Landfill, Incineration and gasification-pyrolysis of the waste treatment technologies are studied inSimaPro software based on input-output materials flow.

Idioma: Portugus
Assunto: Life Cycle
Resumo: Life cycle assessment (LCA) has been developed as a tool for assessment of the environmental impacts which are caused by the pressures from products or systems, viewed in a life cycle perspective, i.e. covering all stages of the life cycle of the product or system from the extraction of raw materials over manufacture or construction through use to disposal or decommissioning and recycling

Idioma: Portugus
Assunto: Life Cycle
Resumo: The statistical entropy (SE) function has been applied to waste treatment systems to account for dilution or concentration effects on metals. We later extended it to account for carbon flows, especially in waste management systems involving thermal treatment. Now, a simple lifecycle net energy metric encompassing the lost energy that would have been gained when high-calorific materials are landfilled rather than combusted with energy recovery is introduced to account for additional influxes of carbon when using landfilling as the primary disposal method. When combining net energy calculations and long terms effects of landfilling, waste to energy (WTE) becomes a more attractive option for dealing with non-recycled municipal solid waste (MSW). A greenhouse gasforcing factor is also introduced to account for the entropy generating effects of methane. When incorporating forcing and lost energy, WTE performs notably better than landfills with respect to entropy generation and carbon.
