The overall objective of the study summarized in this report was to gather data on waste
management technologies to allow comparison of various alternatives for managing municipal
solid waste (MSW). The specific objectives of the study were to:
1. Compile detailed data for existing waste management technologies on costs,
environmental releases, energy requirements and production, and coproducts
such as recycled materials and compost.
2. Identify missing information necessary to make energy, economic, and
environmental comparisons of various MSW management technologies, and
define needed research that could enhance the usefulness of the technology.
3. Develop a data base that can be used to identify the technology that best meets
specific criteria defined by a user of the data base.
Here’s what’s next.
