Title: Waste incineration of municipal solid waste (MSW);average European waste-to-energy plant, without collection, transport and pre-treatment;at plant (Location: EU-27)
The share of the waste fractions and the elementary composition of the incinerated MSW represent an average European MSW which is thermally treated. The used MSW composition does not include separate collection of certain waste fractions like paper or glass. The waste fraction share and the elementary composition of the MSW are shown in the table (first table second column) and pie chart beneath. The data set covers all relevant process steps / technologies over the supply chain of the represented cradle to gate inventory with a good overall data quality. The inventory is mainly based on industry data and is completed, where necessary, by secondary data.
