Data or Tool
This simulation provides a simple spreadsheet model for calculating greenhouse gas (GHG) emission from all the existing waste management practices (transportation, mix waste landfilling,composting, anaerobic digestion, mechanical biological treatment, recycling, incineration and open burning) in developing Asia. In addition, this simulation is...

Abstract Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from conventional solid waste management in developing Asian countries contribute significantly to global climate change. This paper argues that moving towards Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) offers a practical solution for mitigating these GHG emissions and for realising socio-economic as well as...

Landfilling is the most common and cost-effective waste disposal method, and it is widely applied throughout the world. In developing countries in Asia there is currently a trend towards constructing sanitary landfills with gas recovery systems, not only as a solution to the waste problem and the associated local environmental pollution, but also...

The ISWA World Solid Waste Congress 2012
Open dumping and landfilling are the two predominant waste disposal methods in Thailand. In 2009, only 23% of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) was separated for recycling. As far as on land disposal is concerned, it has been estimated that 47% of collected waste is being landfilled and 53% is being openly dumped. These simple MSW management methods are...
Discussion Paper
Remarks: This paper was revised and the new title is 'Practical guide for improved organic waste management: climate benefits through the 3Rs in developing Asian countries'. The authors recommend readers to follow the revised version that has corrected proof and updating data on waste generation and national policies relevant with waste management...

In IRES Vol.5 No.1
It is widely agreed that the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is a useful international instrument that encourages and reinforces the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), and also that it should be further promoted as a way to fill the gap in energy and GHG efficiency between industrialized and developing countries. A number of...
