Life cycle assesment of municipal solid waste management methods: Ankara case study
Ozeler, D; Yetiş, Ülkü; Demirer, GN (Elsevier BV, 2006-04-01)
Different solid waste management system scenarios were developed and compared for the Municipal Solid Waste Management System of Ankara by using the life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology. The solid waste management methods considered in the scenarios were collection and transportation of wastes, source reduction, Material Recovery Facility (MRF)/Transfer Stations (TS), incineration, anaerobic digestion and landfilling. The goal of the study was to determine the most environmentally friendly option of MSWM...

Integrated solid waste management (ISWM) is used in order to sustain social and environmental quality within a city by using various treatment methods in parallel. On the other hand, in developing countries, solid waste management is one of the biggest challenges in the large cities. The increase in the population, thus the waste generation arises budget deficits for municipalities due to high management costs. The current waste disposal and management method applied in North Cyprus causes pollution to the ...

Khalid, Sajida.; Sarı, Ramazan; Department of Earth System Science (2019)
Pakistan is a developing country and energy crisis has always emerged as the key hindrance in economic development. Besides the increasing demand and supply gap, it is alarming fact that the current energy mix is mainly dependent on fossil fuels which results in environmental and energy security issues. As part of efforts for transition towards clean and renewable technologies for electricity generation, the assessments carried out by Pakistan Meteorological Department and Ministry of Energy in collaboratio...
Life cycle assessment of two different renewable energy systems for a selected region: Bozcaada island
Şentürk, Ayşe Eylül; Oğuz, Elif (2020-01-01)
Energy production without destroying the environment has been one of the most crucial issues for the people living in today'sworld. In order to analyse whole environmental impacts of energy production process, life cycle assessment (LCA) is widely used. In this study, two distinct renewable energy systems are assessed. First, a land-based wind farm which has been operating in Bozcaada Island since 2000 compared with a proposed solar photovoltaic power plant in terms of Energy Pay-Back Time (EPBT) periods an...
