Abstract

In order to solve the problem represented by Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) management, it is now common to utilise an integrated management scheme. Integrated systems for MSW management are extremely complex. However, they also represent a very interesting potential resource, from both energy and economic viewpoints. Thus, proper planning of the integrated cycle as a whole is of fundamental importance. This paper focuses on the development of a model for the analysis and optimisation of integrated cycles for MSW treatment. This objective is pursued through an assessment of the entire MSW life cycle. An application is also presented, in the form of a case-study of the Italian Region of Campania, which appears to be of particular interest, due to the recent start of a new regional plan for waste treatment, recycling and disposal.
