Nopal (Opuntia ficus-indica (L.) Mill.) has the ability to grow in climatic conditions that are adverse for most conventional crops. It can be an alternative for biogas production by co-digestion with dairy cow manure, the second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in dairy farms. To evaluate the feasibility of using nopal as a biogas source, the environmental impacts associated with the process need to be quantified. In this study, a life cycle assessment is carried out to evaluate the environmental...

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 ...

The products of textile industry are irrevocable part of our lives: clothes, carpets, towels etc. However, textile industry is known to be having impact on the environment, especially for its high levels of water consumption and waste generation. The European Union’s Industrial Emissions Directive (former IPPC Directive) requires industrial establishments to apply best available techniques (BAT) both in the production processes and in the waste treatment and disposal. The European IPPC Bureau (EIPPCB) produ...

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...
