      It covers key elements of the waste management system, such as its technical, environmental, social, financial and institutional aspects. Besides understanding the challenges, you will be introduced to appropriate and already applied solutions through selected case studies. With rapid economic growth and massive urbanization in China, many cities face the problem of municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal. With the lack of space for new landfills, waste-to-energy incineration is playing an increasingly important role in waste management. Incineration of MSW from Chinese cities presents some unique challenges because of its low calorific value (− kJ/kg) .

      This study compares, from an environmental point of view, different alternative scenaria for the management of municipal solid waste generated in a city of citizens. Three integrated solid waste management scenaria are developed. Each of these alternatives includes the recycling File Size: KB. integrated informal systems of municipal waste management in its policy framework. that were used as case studies for this research.
