Abstract

Increasing restriction on emissions from waste management has generated a number of clean waste management technologies that potentially can be applied in Kyoto Protocol project-based CDM and JI mechanisms.. These mechanisms give a strong incentive to construct and operate waste management installation in host countries as it generates income from selling certified emission reductions (CERs) or emission reduction units (ERUs). The paper focuses on new concepts of MSW management in the reduction of GHG emissions. The emission reduction potentials of the concepts are assessed in reference cases. Implementation costs of the concepts are estimated as well as the business opportunities under CDM or JI mechanisms. Furthermore,the paper outlines a JI-project on landfill gas recovery combined with utilization of the gas. The case study describes recovery of landfill gas on a landfill in St Petersburg in order to reduce CH4 emissions at the landfill site, and thus to generate Emission Reduction Units (ERUs).
