Description

An integrated model of municipal waste management of the Czech Republic was developed as a balanced network model for a set of municipal solid waste (MSW) sources (mostly municipalities) connected with a set of chosen waste treatment facilities processing their waste. The model involves composting, energy utilisation, material recycling, and land-filling. It is implemented as a combination of four sub-models (GIS transport submodel, quantification and composition of MSW sub-models, cost economic sub-models of all facilities and sub-model optimizing greenhouse gases expressed as CO2 equivalent) and it is easily scalable. It enables the optimisation of environmental impacts (land-filling and greenhouse emissions). Its application is demonstrated in the case study as a decision support tool for the planning allocation of potential facilities of waste recovery instead of land-filling.
