Climate effects by MSW combustion

Combustion is a chemical process where components are oxidized by deliberation of reaction energy in the form of heat. In the case of waste combustion, oxygen normally is supplied by air which in the process is transferred into a waste gas. It contains the combustion products such as CO2, N2O and other oxidation products, as well as non combusted gaseous residues from the original waste. The typical amount of waste gas produced is about 5,700 Nm3 per ton of waste (BREF, 2006).

Climate effects by waste combustion result from both

• direct emissions of CO2, N2O, pollutants, and indirect emissions

• avoiding greenhouse gases by energy and material recovery

Net greenhouse gas emissions result from the addition of these effects.
