Waste Modelling Using Substance Flow Analysis and Life Cycle Assessment
1998 (English)In: Proceedings of the Air & Waste Management Association’s Annual Meeting, Stockholm: KTH , 1998, 15pp- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Computer models of municipal waste management have been developed initially to focus on cost minimization. As focus in local planning changed, the objective of these models now include environmental optimization. The development of life-cycle assessment (LCA) as a standard means to quantify environmental impact, and of substance flow analysis (SFA) as a means to track down causes of environmental problems has offered new possibilities in this field. The ORWARE (ORganic WAste REsearch) connects LCA and SFA for evaluation of environmental impact in waste planning. Despite the holistic approach of waste planning models, they do not necessarily facilitate decision making.
