Abstract

Main focus of this paper is given to the analysis of potential of measures of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction from the waste management in Croatia. First a methodology used for emission calculations is explained. Three different scenarios of GHG emission reduction in waste management were defined in which the GHG emissions were calculated using the kinetic model: baseline scenario, with measures scenario, and with additional measures scenario. Implementation of best available techniques in waste management is envisaged by cross-sectoral impact and effect of respective measures. Energetic, environmental and economic benefits can be accomplished by utilizing municipal solid waste (MSW) and landfill gas as fuel in industry and energy sector, which is emphasized by this paper. The paper gives an overview of measures for energy recovery from MSW and landfill gas that could be implemented in Croatia. These measures also represent measures for an additional GHG emission reduction by decreased use of fossil fuels. This paper gives maximum achievable potential of GHG emission reduction with defined measure implementation dynamics. It was calculated that around 1 million ton of CO2 can be avoided in 2020, which is 2.1 of projected GHG emissions in Croatia. The energy that could be recovered from waste (8.34 PJ in 2020) is relatively small in relation to the total final energy consumption in Croatia (about 3).
