Estimation of Methane Emissions from Mirash Municipal Solid Waste Sanitary Landfill, Differences between IPPC 2006 and LandGEM MethodBiserka Dimishkovska, Afrim Berisha, Kiril Lisichkov
This paper deals with estimation of methane emissions from the Mirash municipal solid waste sanitary landfill. Methane emission was calculated according to two different methodologies, namely, IPCC 2006 and LandGEM.
Energies 2019, 12(6), 1066 Applications of the 3T Method and the R1 Formula as Efficiency Assessment Tools for Comparing Waste-to-Energy and LandfillingStergios Vakalis, Konstantinos Moustakas
The assessment of novel waste-to-energy technologies has several drawbacks due to the nature of the R1 formula. The 3T method, which aims to cover this gap, combines thermodynamic parameters in a radar graph and the overall efficiency is calculated from the area of the trapezoid. The present study expands the application of the 3T method in order to make it suitable for utilization in other energy-from-waste technologies.

Recy&DepoTech 2018 Chemical Current Sources Management in the European Union and Russia in the Context of Extended Producer ResponsibilityValeriia Zilenina
Dr.-Ing. Olga Ulanova
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christina Dornack
The rapid development of the electronic industry in the post-industrial society contributes to the increase in the production volumes of chemical currentsources (CCS). This article is concerned with the extended producer responsibility (EPR) concept and the mechanisms of its implementation in the spent chemical current sources (SCCS management in Russia and in the EU countries. The EPR organization models for greening the SCCS lifecycle in these countries using the existing legal basis of the European Union and Russia are presented.

Waste Management Vol. 8 Methods for Optimized On-Line Cleaning
Franziska Graube, Sebastian Grahl, Matthias Reiche and Michael Beckmann
The combustion of waste releases compounds which form deposits on the walls. These deposits might either lead to slagging or fouling. Fouling occurs both in the convective part and in the radiative part of the steam generator while slagging can be found mainly in the radiation section.
