Household waste collection, residual waste, to residual waste sorting facility

Product name

Household waste collection, residual waste, to residual waste sorting facility

Reference flow

1 kg

System boundaries

The process includes the collection of 1 kg residual waste and end with the delivery of the waste at the waste bunker of the residual waste sorting facility. Regarding the production of biogas used as fuel, the system starts at the biogas upgrading facility.

Wastes and end-of-life

Waste treatment and maintenance of the infrastructure are included in the dataset. Further treatment of the collected waste itself is not included in the dataset

Use advice of the dataset

This dataset should be used to model the impact from residual waste collection in Romerike, Norway. Since residual waste is going to a residual waste sorting facility, only glass & metal and paper & cardboard are collected separately. Collection of these waste fraction is not included in the dataset. Ecoinvent 3.7.1 is used to model the background processes.

Technology description

77% of the residual waste is collect by waste collection vehicles on biogas, 23% is collected by diesel cars. Direct emissions from biogas are modelled using natural gas emission profiles as proxy, but these are adjusted to the lower methane content of biogas.

NorEnviro er etablert i regi av NORSUS (tidligere Østfoldforskning) og NMBU og har som mål å øke bruk og gjenbruk av LCA-data. Dette gjennom å tilrettelegge for at LCA-data fra flere FOU- miljøer og bedrifter blir tilgjengeliggjort.

LCA-data blir brukt i LCA studier for å analysere miljøpåvirkninger av produkter, produktsystemer og tjenester. Dataene er strukturert på en bestemt måte slik at det kan bli brukt i LCA-software.

SØK I LCA-DATA

NorEnviro skal også være en arena som brukere og kunder av miljø- og ressursdata oppsøker for å finne frem til og få tilgang til data og kompetanse, og dermed gjøre det lettere å finne frem i jungelen av miljø- og ressursdata.
